Rhys Norrington-Davies Joins Luton Town on Season-Long Loan
Starting Spot Available for Norrington-Davies
Luton have needed a left-back this summer, with both Dan Potts and Brendan Galloway suffering with injury. It seems that the Welsh U21 international will be looking to cement a starting spot imminently under Nathan Jones and will be looking forward to gaining Championship experience.
During Luton’s pre-season, recent youth team graduates Corey Panter and Sam Beckwith have played at left-back. It has been a great experience for the pair, but moving forward in the Championship, the Hatters needed a player like Norrington-Davies.
Progression Into Championship Football
The 21-year-old started his career at Aberystwyth Town before being snapped up by Swansea City. By 18-years-old he joined Sheffield United, before gaining some invaluable senior experience elsewhere.
Unlike Luton’s current left-back options, Norrington-Davies has received a lot of game-time over the last couple of seasons. He spent the 2018/2019 season on loan at Barrow, making 28 appearances for the club. He was then shipped out to Rochdale at the beginning of last season, where he made 34 appearances before the season was voided.
What Was Said?
Luton boss Nathan Jones was delighted with the signing and looks forward to working with him.
“Rhys is someone with a great pedigree from Swansea and Sheffield United. He is someone I’ve watched all through last season at Rochdale. When he became available we wanted to get him.” He said
“He’s athletic, he’s committed and has a great desire to do well, which is what we want.”
Speaking about the Welsh influence he is integrating into his squad, Jones jokingly told Luton’s website that “it is always nice to have a few Welsh men in the building”.
