With promotion now a reality and everyone looking forward to seeing how Luton Town Football Club fare in League One, work continues, behind the scenes, to shape the squad for a sustainable promotion campaign.
After deciding which of the squad were no longer part of his plans, Nathan Jones is now moving quickly to ensure those he wants as part of his squad for the coming season are tied down to contracts.
Last summer, the Hatters brought Alan McCormack to Kenilworth Road with the player arriving on a free transfer from Brentford.
McCormack, 34-years-of-age, was an instant hit, scoring on his League Two debut for the Hatters in the 8-2 mauling of Yeovil Town.
However, the player was to be sidelined with an injury in September, an injury that kept McCormack out until March, limiting his appearances to just sixteen.
But, Nathan Jones obviously saw something he liked in the player and the decision has been made to extend his contract, by a year, tying him to Luton for next season.
Naturally, McCormack is delighted to be part of the Hatters squad as they look towards a campaign, in League One, remarking to the media,
“It’s phenomenal to be part of a club I feel is on the way to the Championship.”
Let’s hope that is the case, but our view is that it is a smart move, made by the Hatters, in keeping McCormack at the club, his experience should prove invaluable as the Hatters march on.
Hopefully, McCormack can stay fit for much more of the season as the Hatters look to continue on in upwards direction.
