The four tours kicked off at the end of May when Town’s U15s, U13s and U11s competed in the Cordial Cup in Austria for the fourth year running.

The most successful of the teams were the U13s as they lost a close semi-final 1-0 to German team Hertha Berlin, who went on to win the tournament by beating Dutch side Feyenoord in the final.

The U11s also had an excellent tournament, unluckily losing out on penalties in the quarter-finals to Bayern Munich.

For the U15s they made it all the way to the final of the Plate competition, defeating the likes of Borussia Dortmund along the way.

Luton’s U9 and U11 teams took part in the Sportlife Cup in Verl, Germany, in June.

Meanwhile, the U14s and U12s competed for the third year in the Wasa Cup at Vaasa, Finland.

The youngsters involved had just been handed two-year contracts by the club as both teams triumphed.
