The 2021/2022 season may still be some way off but the recent signing of Allan Campbell, from Motherwell, has increased the anticipation levels.

After a more than decent season, last time out, where the Hatters consolidated their status as a Championship club, with a mid-table position, the belief is that with Onyedinma, Burke and Campbell on board, we could be in for a more than decent season.

I have always said that when it comes to signing a new player, the impact he will make can be predicted by the social media messages left by fans of the club he has just left and Allan Campbell, if the Motherwell fans are correct, will become a Luton legend.

Delving through the plethora of social media posts left by Motherwell fans, the ones below illustrate the point perfectly:

But what I find interesting is that no one I could find had left a post questioning Luton Town as his choice of club. Something a Hatters fan picked up upon:

Now I accept we are (currently) not one of the biggest clubs in the Championship, but we have a vision, a vision that Nathan Jones must have sold to the Scottish U21 midfielder.

Also, digging a little deeper into the deal, it appears, according to The BBC, that the deal was part-funded by the fan-generated ‘Transfer Club’ fund and that part of the deal may have involved a sell-on clause with Motherwell chief executive, Alan Burrows, quoted by our referenced source as having remarked:

“We have reached a compromise that is both fair in the short-term but also allows Motherwell the potential to share in future success, should Allan’s career continue in the same upward trajectory.”

It really does look as if the Hatters have picked up a gem and a player that could, eventually, go a long way in the game.

Here at Vital Luton Town, we would like to take this opportunity to formally welcome Allan to our fine club and we wish him every success with us.
