Drury switches to rivals

Boro midfielder moves to local rivals Luton Town

BORO midfielder Andy Drury has left the club to join non-league Luton Town.

The 26-year-old was out of contract at Broadhall Way and has signed a two-year deal with Hatters after two seasons at Boro in which he made 65 appearances and scored 12 goals the last of which came in Boro’s FA Trophy Final defeat to Barrow.

Brighton & Hove Albion and several other Football League sides had been reportedly interested in securing the midfielder’s services.

Drury’s 2009/10 season was disrupted by injury but even so the former Gravesend man was seen as a key member of Graham Westley’s squad.

Luton Town boss Richard Money told the club’s official website: “Andy has been a player who has been at the forefront our minds throughout the whole of last season and we are naturally absolutely thrilled that he has made the ambitious decision to join us.

“It’s fantastic to be able to attract a player of his ability and believe that our long-term plans and current stature were the main factors in persuading him to agree terms with us.

“Playing in front of 7,000-plus crowds every week is a massive incentive for any footballer, especially at this level and both Andy, myself and everyone at the Club are extremely excited about next season’s challenges and beyond.”
