Keeper puts pen to paper on new two-year deal
Goalkeeper Elliot Justham has signed a contract extension with the Hatters, keeping him at Kenilworth Road until 2017.
The 24-year-old has been in excellent form in the past two months since being given his Football League debut in the 3-2 defeat at AFC Wimbledon on 21st February.
Justham, who joined the Town in the summer of 2013 from East Thurrock, has played the last 13 games for the Hatters and kept three clean sheets in his last four games.
The keeper told Hatters Player: “The last two years have been a bit of a whirlwind and I’ve had to adapt to being a professional footballer, but I’m very happy and delighted to sign for another two years at this massive club.
“I’ve learned a lot and I have a lot of people to thank: Mark Tyler in particular, he’s been brilliant, as has Kevin Dearden since he’s come in; and the gaffer, of course.
“I’m grateful to them and now I’ve got another two years to try and prove myself further.”
Boss John Still added: “The one positive from our run of bad form was Elliot’s performances.
“He has come in and proven how good he is both on and off the pitch. He’s showed us all why we brought him to this football club in the first place.
“Mark Tyler might have been out injured but Elliot has grabbed his opportunity with both hands and hasn’t looked back.
“It’s great to be able to have two goalkeepers of their ability challenging for the number one spot – and I mean that, because now Elliot’s had a taste of it he won’t want to give up his position, whether he’s friends with Mark or not!”
