Luton Town have confirmed that manager John Still has left the club this morning.

Academy and development manager Andy Awford will take care of first team affairs until further notice, with the existing backroom staff also remaining at Kenilworth Road.

“The decision to make a change was a unanimous one by the Board but one of the most difficult since we took over as custodians in 2008.”

Hatters chief executive Gary Sweet told the club’s official website: “On behalf of the Board I would like to thank John for everything he has brought to Luton Town.

“We have shared some unbelievable moments in this Club’s history together – ones which will never be forgotten.

“The decision to make a change was a unanimous one by the Board but one of the most difficult since we took over as custodians in 2008. We are genuinely saddened that our partnership with John has come to an end earlier than we expected.

“We had hoped John would be with us for the longer-term but now attention turns to finding the next man for the job.”

Meanwhile, Still added: “Naturally I am hugely disappointed to be leaving Kenilworth Road but I would like to thank everyone involved at Luton Town for making my time at the Club an enjoyable one.

“The Board of directors have been fantastic every step of the way, all of the staff – on the football side and behind the scenes – have been unbelievably supportive and the fans have been nothing short of incredible.

“The Conference championship season is one which will live long in my memory and I was proud and honoured to have played a part in bringing Luton Town back in to the Football League.

“I wish the Club all the very best for the rest of the season and beyond.”
