Luton Town's Victory Parade - Skrill Premier Champions for 2013/14

Congratulations to Luton Town FC on their BIG sporting win in the Skrill Premier Division and promotion back to the football league.

There was a great atmosphere in Luton town centre today as an estimated 12,000 Lutonians headed to St George's Square for the Hatters' Victory Parade.

Luton Town FC - "Worlds Football Champions" according to the man doing the announcing at the event!

Luton's Art Deco Town Hall (rebuilt in the 1930's following the infamous Peace Day Riot of 1919) decked out with banners for the triumphant Hatters.

In the midst of the crowd - can you spot me?

Now that Luton Town are back in the football league they'll be playing games against my other hometown team - Oxford United. Hopefully things continue to improve for both teams and its not like the 2000-01 season of the second division (the year I moved to Luton) when both teams were relegated to Division Three!
