Fans fly in from all over the world for Wembley final

Johnstone's Paint Trophy round-up

Luton fans continue to pour into England from all over the globe in anticipation of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final on Sunday.

Some supporters are jetting in from far-flung destinations such as Australia and New Zealand, while others are making the trip from slightly closer to home, albeit with a very difficult journey.

Dr David Welsh is driving all the way from the lochside village of Ardrishaig in Scotland, some 489 miles away from Wembley Stadium.

Welsh, who attended Barton Primary School and Dunstable Grammar, has been a Luton supporter since he was a boy and will be accompanied on the trip by sons Jonathan and Thomas, who are also based in Scotland.

The game against Scunthorpe will be the first match the family have attended this season.
