Luton Town’s administrators have fired the club’s manager Kevin Blackwell and
his coaching staff, soon after announcing a potential sale deal.

terminated the contracts of Blackwell and his staff.
Guilfoyle had earlier announced that a deal would be struck with a consortium
headed up by former TV-AM presenter Nick Owen.

pay running costs.

Guilfoyle said the deal was ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’ that
players, supporters and the club had been waiting for.
