League Two: Luton Town sack manager John Still


Luton Town manager John Still has been sacked with the club 17th in League Two.

Still took charge in February 2013 with the club in the Conference Premier and led them to promotion back to the Football League a year later.

Their first season back led to an eighth place finish in League Two, during a season where they were fighting for promotion for the majority of the season.

Academy and development boss Andy Awford has been placed in charge until further notice.

A statement from Luton chief executive Gary Sweet read,"The decision was a unanimous one by the board," 

"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."

Still said in a statement: "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."
