Luton Town Football Club is an English football club based in Luton, Bedfordshire, which competes in the Conference National, the fifth tier of English football, for the 2009–10 season. Formed in 1885 as the product of a merger,[4] Luton Town became the first professional team in the south of England six years later and joined the Football League in 1897.[1][5] After leaving the League in 1900 because of financial difficulties,[5] Luton Town settled at their Kenilworth Road ground in 1905 and competed in the Southern League until 1920,[5] when the club rejoined the Football League.[1] The team was relegated to the Football Conference in 2009, after 89 consecutive years of League membership, due to a 30-point deduction imposed by the football authorities.[6][7]

Luton Town's first team has competed in a number of nationally contested leagues, and its record against each club faced in these competitions is listed below. The team that the club has met most in league competition is Queens Park Rangers, against whom Luton Town have contested 114 league matches; having lost 44 of these matches, the side has lost more league games to Queens Park Rangers than to any other club. The club against whom Luton Town have recorded the most league victories is Watford, whom the Bedfordshire club have beaten 45 times out of 102 league meetings. Luton have drawn more matches with Millwall than with any other club;[K] out of the 104 league matches between the two teams, 33 have finished without a winner.
