It’s hats off to Monty the mas­cot

The Football League Paper - - FINAL THIRD -

LAST WEEK, we re­ported how for­mer Lu­ton star Raddy An­tic was back­ing the Hatters’ bid for a new ground – and now they’ve got Monty Pane­sar and Jeff Stelling on the case!

Eng­land crick­eter Pane­sar popped into Ke­nil­worth Road last Mon­day to send Lu­ton Bor­ough Coun­cil his email of sup­port for Power Court, a sta­dium he be­lieves will be ‘the cen­tre for Lu­ton in the 21st cen­tury’.

Lu­ton-born Pane­sar is urg­ing ev­ery­one to get be­hind the bid.

The 34-year-old Northamp­ton­shire spin bowler said: “Let’s get this new sta­dium up and run­ning and hope­fully, when it’s 2020, I may just ap­pear in the new sta­dium as the Hatters’ mas­cot!”

Mean­while, Soc­cer Satur­day host Stelling has also weighed in – though his rea­sons for do­ing so are not en­tirely based on Lu­ton’s wel­fare.

He added: “My beloved Hartle­pool have had a tor­rid time against the Hatters since they re­turned to the Foot­ball League, so the sooner they are out of League Two and climb­ing up the di­vi­sions the bet­ter.”
