Hatters will select a number of their first year pros for the trip to Southern League Premier Division side Hitchin Town this evening.

Frankie Musonda, James Justin, Akin Famewo and Tyreeq Bakinson will all feature against the Canaries at Top Field, along with summer signing Isaac Vassell, plus Zane Banton and Craig King.

Other Town youngsters who are set to take on Mark Burke’s side, who reached the play-offs last season, include Cameron McJannett and Freddie Hinds, who have both played in Town’s pre-season games this term.

Youth Academy and Development manager Andy Awford takes charge of the side as he told the Hatters’ official website: “We are taking a good young side over to Hitchin with a sprinkling of first-team squad players, many who have done really well in the friendlies so far.

“We enjoyed going over to Top Field last season. A lot of Luton fans live locally and will be keen to see the future is bright is for the club after the youth team did so well last season.”

Kick-off at Top Field is 7.45pm, with supporters able to pay what they like on the gate.
