On this day, some eighty years ago, a Luton Town forward was making history.

In his first ever game playing as a centre forward Joe Payne showed that he was a natural at putting the ball in the net.

With Luton Town hosting Bristol Rovers, at Kenilworth Road, the Hatters ran out runaway winners beating Bristol Rovers 120 with Joe scoring 10 of those goals.

I doubt whether anyone who reads tis site would have been around in the flesh to see Joe make history and it`s a crying shame that, as far as I know, there`s no Pathe News footage of the remarkable event available to view.

But I`m betting it was an extraordinary spectacle to witness.
