Earlier today, in what has been a busy day, speculation wise, we mentioned a former striker just might be returning to Kenilworth Road.
Our article – former-hatter-set-for-surprise-return – seems to have hit the nail firmly on the head with The Official Luton Town Site confirming that Cauley Woodrow has indeed put pen-to-paper on a contract with the Hatters.
As is the norm these days the transfer fee is described as ‘undisclosed’ but Nathan Jones, on the Official Luton Town Site has waxed lyrical about landing his man, with the gaffer remarking, among other things:
“Cauley is a real standout signing for us – a marquee signing. I’ve worked with him briefly before with England U21s and he’s a player we know really well from his Barnsley days, plus he’s a local lad as well.
“It’s a fantastic signing and I thank the board for being bold, brave and for backing me on this. We are sure that Cauley has the quality to make us better.”
As for the player, he seems equally as chuffed to have returned to Kenilworth Road:
“I’m a bit emotional to be back at Luton Town. This is where I started my journey as a professional footballer and Gary Sweet always said that I’d come back and play one day, and today is the day.
“I’m delighted to be here. I’m a local boy and me and my family are really delighted for me to be so close to home. To be playing my football back where it all started, it is great for me.”
It’s my opinion that it’s great for everybody, Woodrow is a proven Championship striker and, if he remains fit, will be the perfect addition to our strike force as we seek to improve on the commendable sixth place, we achieved last season.
All that remains to be done is to welcome Cauley back to Kenilworth Road, let’s hope his stay is a memorable one and his presence can provide the impetus to push for promotion.
