David's Wembley way

David Button has been left wanting more after a taste of Wembley success as part of Luton Town's Johnstone's Paint Trophy triumph.

The young goalkeeper's loan spell at the League Two club was timed to perfection as he was on the bench as the Hatters beat Scunthorpe 3-2 after extra time on Sunday.

That was the last day of David's loan spell and he's now back at Spurs.

But what a way to go out! "It was an unbelievable feeling," said the England Under-20 international. "We had a tour of the stadium on Thursday but nothing compares to when you first run out and all the fans are in there. It takes your breath away.

"The stadium was filling up already when we came out for the warm-up and just to be out there at Wembley was something special."

The Hatters came from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 only for Scunthorpe to level with two minutes remaining to take the game into extra time.

It was left to Claude Gnapka to take the hero's role with the winner five minutes into extra time in front of over 55,000 fans.

It was the silver lining on the dark cloud that has hovered over Kenilworth Road all season after they were deducted 30 points for financial irregularities.

They've clawed minus 30 points back to plus 22 - meaning they would have been comfortable in 14th place - but the deduction means they are still 12 points adrift of safety with six games left.

"It's been a really tough season for Luton so this was a fantastic experience for the club and the fans, who were superb," added David.

"It was a day to remember and makes you want more - hopefully one day I'll get the opportunity to go there again and play."
