The Hatters stand ready to start the 2017 / 2018 season looking for a new chairman.

It has been announced today that Nick Owen has stood down from the role after nine years.

Owen, now 69-years-of-age, will become a vice-president.

The BBC presenter has been chairman during one of the most difficult periods of the Hatters history, helping to steer the club out of administration when it seriously looked as if the club was to become extinct.

Talking about his decision, Nick has remarked,

‘I have taken the decision with a heavy heart because of my love of LTFC.

‘I have a significant number of other commitments and I feel that I am unable to dedicate the time and effort that I feel the role now deserves.’

Paying tribute to Owen, Luton`s CEO Gary Sweet, commented,

‘Nick has been a wonderful ambassador for us and he leaves with our very best wishes and profound gratitude.

‘Of course, he will continue to be a familiar face both here at Kenilworth Road and at Power Court.’

Here at Vital Luton Town we`d like to thank Nick Owen for his dedication to the cause and wish him well in the future.
