Goalkeeper Dean Brill signs two-year deal

The Hatters are pleased to welcome back goalkeeper Dean Brill to Kenilworth Road.

The 26-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Town having impressed boss Paul Buckle during the course of pre-season.

Luton-born Brill came through the ranks as a youngster and made 97 appearances for the club having made his debut as a substitute in 2003 at Oldham Athletic.

He left Kenilworth Road at the end of the 2009/10 season – a campaign that saw the 6ft 3in stopper pick up a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy winners medal.

Subsequently, Brill signed for Oldham, where he enjoyed a two-season spell with the Latics, making 63 appearances.

This time last year Brill joined League 2 side Barnet, and over the course of the campaign he helped the Bees avoid relegation and reach the area final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Town boss Paul Buckle told “Dean has been outstanding for us since he joined the squad for pre-season training.

“It’s a testament to his attitude, experience and performances – in training and in friendlies – that we have decided to tie him to a two-year deal. 

“His experience for a player his age is a huge asset to us and anybody who has seen him in action this pre-season will be aware of his presence on the pitch and ability between the posts.

“It gives us added competition in the goalkeeping department – something myself, the coaches, and the goalkeepers themselves – are all relishing.

“Dean knows the club well, too, which is another bonus. He’s a Luton lad who is desperate to get his home-town club back in the Football League.”

A full interview with Dean will be available on Hatters Player later today.
