1,088 - We Salute You
When the fixtures for the new season were announced, there was a collective sigh heard around Bedfordshire.
After a five year absence from the Football League, courtesy of a draconian punishment for crimes committed by people no longer at the club, Luton supporters were hoping that if they couldn`t get a first home fixture they`d at least be given an away fixture that wasn`t too far away.
Instead the Hatters faithful were given a trip to Carlisle United, a round trip of 550 miles approximately.
But, after a five year absence that wasn`t to deter the Luton faithful and Carlisle United have confirmed that a magnificent 1088 Hatters fans passed through the turnstiles.
Tell the world folks - Luton Town are back!
