Luton Town director David Blakeman has announced he is leaving the board at Kenilworth Road.

Writing in Tuesday night’s programme against Wycombe Wanderers, Blakeman, who was appointed in 2011, said: “From my own perspective, tonight’s match is a somewhat bittersweet experience, as I have decided to step down from the board.

“Apart from the poor recent run of form, the club has progressed, in almost every area, in the last few years.”

David Blakeman, director

“I have been thrilled to be associated with the club for the last three-and-a-half years – an association which has been the fulfilment of a boyhood dream; and I have been involved with some marvellous moments associated with the club.

“Apart from the poor recent run of form, the club has progressed, in almost every area, in the last few years and I feel our community projects, which I have been closely associated with, have also progressed significantly.

“I am also pleased to have contributed to our relocation plans, which are also progressing positively.

“Moving forwards, I do intend to remain involved with the club, in the role of a general community ambassador – but my business interests prevent more active involvement.”
