Luton travelled to the County Ground for both clubs' first ever league match in August 1920, and returned to Bedfordshire having received a spanking - Harold Fleming scoring four times as the Town recorded a 9-1 victory, which to this day is still the club's biggest ever league win. As was usual back then, the clubs met for the return game just days later - bizarrely, Luton won the game 2-0!

The two sides' first meeting came in the FA Cup, as far back as 1891, when they were drawn together in the regional draw for the First Qualifying Round. Despite the Town leading 2-0 at half-time through goals by Dick Jones and Harry Offer, Luton scored four in the second half to win an epic encounter by four goals to three. Luton were to join the Town as founder members of the Southern League in 1894, and though they spent a short spell in the Football League between 1897 and 1900, they returned to the Southern League before both clubs helped form the Football League Third Division together, in time for that opening encounter in 1920.

Luton denied Swindon the chance of a Wembley final in 1988, when the two sides met in the Semi Final of the Simod Cup. Otherwise known as the Full Members' Cup, the competition was open to teams in the top two divisions only - Swindon had already beaten Blackburn, Derby, Chelsea and Norwich en route. The match was played on the infamous artificial pitch at Kenilworth Road - the Town's first ever competitive match on plastic - and though Kieran O'Regan scored a second half equaliser to take the game into extra time, Mark Stein netted in the added period to ensure the Hatters' passage to the final, where they lost to Reading. It was the first of two visits that the Hatters made to Wembley that season, the second coming when they won the League Cup, and they also managed to get to the FA Cup semi-finals.
