Club photographer Gareth Owen was on hand to get some pictures of the young pros and Under-18s training at The Brache last Friday.

The following day the Under-18s played their final friendly ahead of next week's EFL Youth Alliance South-East Division kick-off, beating Exeter 3-1 with goals from Coree Wilson, Ben Stevens and Casey Pettit.

Tonight the Hatters' U21 squad, including goalkeeper Harry Isted, second-year pros Tiernan Parker, Corey Panter, Jake Peck and first years Avan Jones and Sam Beckwith, head to National League side Slough Town for a behind-closed-doors friendly.

The Arbour Park outfit were still in contention for automatic promotion to Non-League's top-flight before football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic with them in fifth place.

They competed in the hastily organised play-offs in late July, but lost their eliminator to Dartford, who then lost in the final to a Weymouth side captained by former Hatters striker Josh McQuoid.

Managed jointly by Jon Underwood and Neil Baker, the Rebels will pose a tough test for the young Town side under the guidance of Adrian Forbes, who has combined his academy role with first team coaching duties since the Championship restart in June. Paul Benson will be assisting him tonight.

The Town squad travelling to Berkshire is as follows:

Harry Isted, Tiernan Parker, Avan Jones, Sam Nsumbu, Matt Moloney, Corey Panter, Sam Beckwith, Jake Peck, Tyrelle Newton, Callum Nicolson, Coree Wilson, Temi Babalola, Casey Pettit, Ben Stevens, Ed McJanett, Joe Halsey, Tra Lucas, Jameson Horlick.
