The transfer window has, for the moment closed and it’s time for a little reflection.
I have to admit that when Nathan Jones decided that Stoke City were his equivalent of the ‘Holy Grail’ and upped sticks and left Luton that the momentum established would stall.
I had this vision the team would lose its way on the pitch and that when it came to the January transfer window it would pass us by.
Thankfully, neither has been the case.
On the pitch, the Hatters continue to go from strength to strength and have opened up a healthy lead at the top of the League One table.
Off the pitch, as far as the transfer window went, I have to admit I couldn’t be more pleased.
The Hatters brought in George Moncur, from Barnsley, who has already proven his worth with that wonderful winner, in midweek, against Portsmouth at Kenilworth Road.
But Luton Town, on deadline day, didn’t just rest on their laurels, they grabbed the proverbial bull by the horns and struck with stealth, bringing to Kenilworth three loan signings that will give the squad that added depth they need as they head towards back-to-back promotion campaigns.
The Hatters added Alex Baptiste, Aaron Connolly and Jason Cummings to the squad.
Baptiste, who arrived from Queens Park Rangers and at 33-years-of-age brings some much-needed experience to a young squad.
Connolly, a tender 19-years-of-age, is on the books of Brighton and Hove Albion, for whom he has played just the one game, but he is tipped to have a bright future in the sport.
Cummings, 23-years-of-age, joins the Hatters from Nottingham Forest after previously having been on loan at Peterborough United.
Here at Vital Luton Town, we’d like to take this opportunity to welcome all-three to Kenilworth Road and we hope they can play a part in making this season as successful as the last one.
