Paul Buckle leaves Luton Town for 'personal reasons'


Paul Buckle has left Blue Square Bet Premier play-off hopefuls Luton with immediate effect for personal reasons. Confirmation of his departure came just before last night's match against Macclesfield at Moss Rose – and after they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Millwall on Saturday.

A statement on the club's official website, www.lutontown.co.uk, read: "It is with much regret we announce, by mutual consent, and as a result of genuine personal circumstances unrelated to his tenure as manager of Luton Town Football Club, Paul Buckle has, with immediate effect, parted company with the football club."
