Midfielder. Former West Ham United academy graduate Ruddock Mpanzu is hoping to stay fighting fit after an injury-disrupted couple of years.
The direct, pacey youngster was an instant hit when signed on-loan by then-boss John Still from the Hammers midway through the Conference title winning campaign of 2013-14, scoring a memorable goal in a crucial come-from-behind win at Dartford. Versatile to play in central defence, midfield or on the wing, Pelly is a real crowd favourite and recently passed the 100 appearance mark for the Hatters. Netted his first goal of this season in the 4-0 win at Yeovil in early March.
