Snelus strikes as Luton beat United
A second half goal from Jack Snelus saw Luton Town finish their Final Third Development League season with a 1-0 win over Cambridge United at Bedford Town FC on Tuesday afternoon.
The youngster, who replaced Scott Griffiths at the break, pounced with 18 minutes to go, sealing victory.
Town keeper Craig King made a good save with his feet in the first half, before Luton, who gave starts to both Griffiths and midfielder Nathan Doyle, were awarded a penalty when Frankie Musonda was tripped in the area.
However, Isaac Galliford’s spot kick was saved, while Hatters also went close when Tyreeq Bakinson’s effort was blocked and Freddie Hinds shot narrowly over from 20 yards.
In the second half, Doyle made way for Kavan Cotter just before the hour and Snelus almost had the opening strike, before he did break the deadlock, tucking home after Hinds’ shot hit the post.
Luton, who gave midfielder Nathan Doyle an hour’s run-out, could have been ahead earlier, but Isaac Galliford’s penalty was saved in the first half.
Hatters: King, Justin, Onyemah, Famewo, Musonda, Doyle (Cotter 58), Trotman, Galliford (Murray 72), Hinds (McGhan George 80), Bakinson, Griffiths (Snelus 46).
