Tom Lockyer features in Development squad victory

As well as a fine result for the first-team on Saturday afternoon, the Development squad continued the trend with an excellent 4-0 win against Charlton Athletic.


A mix of under-18s and players with senior experience helped the Hatters to a comfortable win against the Addicks, a match in which Tom Lockyer featured in.

On his involvement, Development Coach Adrian Forbes said: “Tom needed to get some minutes in the tank, so to speak, and he was excellent on and off the pitch. He needs some more fitness to get back in the first-team mix but it was a pleasure to have him with us, he was brilliant with the lads.”

Ed McJannet scored twice and goals from Dion Pereira and TQ Addy secured victory for the development side, and Forbes admitted: “I was happy with the all-round performance, the shape was really good and we were a real attacking threat, which we have been in the last few matches."

The Development squad are back in action tomorrow against Colchester United in a friendly match.

In more academy news, the Under 18s started their Youth Alliance League campaign on Saturday but they fell to a 2-1 defeat against Milton Keynes. Jake Burger, who started his two-year apprenticeship this summer, scored for the young Hatters.

Substitutes: Pettit, Nicolson, Stevens, Francis-Clarke, Taylor, Tompkins
