Scunthorpe Up, Luton Down

Today’s 1-0 defeat to Preston North End confirmed Luton Town’s relegation status. Luton had been in the Championship for two seasons after winning League One in the 04-05 season. Newly hired gaffer, former Leeds boss Kevin Blackwell, has to undertake a big rebuilding job over the summer. The club has lost most of their young talents including Carlos Edwards and Curtis Davies.

Climbing into the Championship is Scunthorpe United. The Irons have not been in the second tier of English football for 44 years. Scunthorpe United was formerly known as Scunthorpe and Lindsey United among other names. The club has been in existence since 1899, but did not join the football league until 1950. Their biggest challenge heading into next season will be to retain the services of top scorer Billy Sharp who has netted 28 goals in 42 appearances this season to go along with 23 in 37 last season. Attacking midfielder Andy Keogh has also caught scout’s eyes and he received his first call up to the Republic of Ireland international squad this year.

    Just discovered this blog from listening to the EPLTalk podcast – I look forward to following Scunny’s progress in the Championship next season, and will be reading Championship Talk regularly.

    Oh, and just FYI: Andy Keogh left Scunny for Wolves in the January transfer window, and is currently looking to earn promotions with two clubs in one season (Wolves are in the playoff hunt, and he played enough for Scunthorpe to qualify for a League One Champions medal).

    Cheers, and UP THE IRON!!
