Bean is set to stay with the Blues until the end of the season
Hatters youth team defender Harry Bean has joined Evo-Stik League Southern Premier neighbours Dunstable Town on work experience.
Bean, the 18-year-old who can play in either full-back role or at centre-half, is the latest of Andy Awford and Paul Driver’s talented youngsters to be sent out to gain experience of senior men’s football.
The second-year scholar is due to stay with Tony Fontenelle’s side until the end of the season, although as with all work experience loans, the Hatters have an immediate recall option should the need arise.
Driver said: “Harry’s done really well in the youth team and development games against players his own age, but he’s also stepped up in the Beds Senior and Premier Cup matches when he’s had to deal with senior Non-League players at places like Barton Rovers, Stotfold and Dunstable.
“Spending time at a club competing week in, week out at that level will give him great experience, coming up against men will also aid his physical development.”
Good luck at Creasey Park, Beano!
