Hatters youngster Isaac Galliford scored twice as champions Luton Town finished their Final Third Development League with a 3-0 victory over Gillingham at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

The hosts named three trialists in their side with Buxton striker Shaun Tuton, Concord Rangers midfielder Taylor Miles and Paulton Rovers attacker Jon Davies all selected alongside the likes of Matt Robinson, Curtley Williams and Fraser Franks.

Tuton showed his intentions early on with a shot on the turn that went just wide, before seeing another header saved by Dan Hadler.

Town stopper Liam Gooch saved from Mike Freiter, but Hatters were then ahead after 11 minute with wonderful goal involving Galliford and Tuton.

The Luton youngster, who has recently been offered his first professional deal by the club, went off on mazy run, exchanged passes with Tuton and produced an unerring finish into the roof of the net.

Luke Trotman arrowed wide from range as Luton finished the first half with a 1-0 lead.

After the break, Tuton doubled his side’s advantage, heading home Davies’ cross, while Galliford sealed victory in the closing stages, rifling into the net from 20 yards.
