Lawrie Mac's team was the most exciting and atmospheric time for me, especially when Matt Tees returned and almost doubled gates overnight! I greatly respected George Kerr although he was very outspoken at times and not very likeable. (I like him now when he commentates, he`s mellowed with time!) Dave Booth did a decent job but was a bit dull as was John Newman. Tom Casey was very unlucky to get sacked as he was building a great young side. Paul Groves was just plain unlucky. So the best, of course, was AB Mk1 and 2. By 3 his team was so predictable and shot shy bu I'll forgive him that. Arise Sir Alan!

Well now you've both got the story just a bit tangled.  Paddy Hamilton persuaded Luton to part with Matt in November 70 and his first game back was a 2-0 win over Scunthorpe and the crowd was up by around 2000. And obviously Bobby Kennedy was manager.Matt scored one and a certain diminutive player got the other from a penalty. The chanting for Matt that day is still something that I can clearly remember,one of those things that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

Sorry Icey but you are incorrect. Just found this link which states it WAS Cambridge.

Being as old as you does have some advantages but it seems memories of Matt Tees arent one of them!

Dave Booth , inherited a good side and continued the run before he left . Anyone who was present during Alans leadership had best best ever years . Would he be welcome back for a 4th time ? To go back into the league ? And we still haven't got a bar named after him.

Don't worry Pete, it's when you can't remember what you've lost that you really need to bother about it.
