Luton – Your Most Memorable Danny Hylton Moment

Image for Luton – Your Most Memorable Danny Hylton Moment

Tuesday was a sad day for Luton Town fans with the confirmation that Danny Hylton had left the club.

The 33-year-old, with his contract set to expire, had, as we reported – hatters-hero-hylton-joins-northampton – opted for a continuation of his career with the League Two side.

Hylton did more than his bit, after being signed from Oxford United, in helping the Hatters climb back from the lower reaches of English football to the second tier.

But Danny was more than just a player, he had something extra about him, an ability to interact with the support, something that helped him become a legend.

Although primarily a goal scorer, there’s no denying that Danny had a competitive edge about him that saw him cross the line on more than one occasion.

Indeed, if somebody could dig up the data, I’d be interested to know just how many yellow and red cards he accumulated during his time with the Hatters.

But the above text is all a prelude to a question I’d like your input on.

With Danny Hylton now history, I’d like to know what your favourite memory of the striker is.

Simply drop your recollection into the comment facility beneath this article and we’ll see if there is a common theme.

The floor, as they say, is all yours.

    My son got to go interview the day we thrashed Yeovil with a Collins hat trick on debut. My lad would have been 7 or 8. Danny was such a lovely guy with him. I was seriously impressed with what a nice man he was. Met him a second time in Portugal during the pre season we had there before the first season in the champ. He was recovering from injury I think so wasn’t playing. It was baking hot but he still took the time to talk to my son and me. My son was much more excited by Danny than Alan Shearer. He had no idea who Alan was.

    Not just a great player. A thoroughly decent man. Would love him back in future in some capacity if he wanted it.

      it warms the cockles of my heart to read about players being so down to earth and friendly with the supporters as opposed to being so high and mighty.

    I was lucky enough to chat with Danny a few times last season. Great sense of humour and so down to earth….Newcastle away in the cup for me….scared the life out of them and the crowd hated him…..also don’t if Chris has heard similar, but there my be at least 3 more potential signings on the horizon…..

    I took my daughter Beatrix to her first game at home against Barnet. She was 8 months old at the time (next month she will turn 5). Danny scored and picked her up out of the crowd during his goal celebration. It was an amazing moment. She used to think his name was “Daddy Hilton” and still affectionately refers to him as this. She was very upset to hear he is leaving. He’s a top top guy. Bea and I wish him all the best 👍
