Birthday Boy McJannet Turns Pro

Birthday Boy McJannet Turns Pro

First-year apprentice Ed McJannet agreed his first professional deal yesterday, penning a development contract with Luton Town on his 17th birthday.

The attacking midfielder has already established himself as an important member of the Hatters’ Under-18s side that is currently vying for top spot in the EFL Youth Alliance South East division.

With the club aiming for Category 2 status, McJannet has featured for the evolving development squad this term, gaining valuable experience against Under-21s opposition.

Academy & Development Manager Andy Awford told Luton’s website: “It’s Ed’s 17th birthday today and it’s the earliest we’ve ever offered a contract to a player, so it’s a nice present for him, but also a reward for the hard work he’s put in.

“Ed is one that has done very well so far this season, both in the Under-18s and 21s, when he’s made the step up into that group for the increasingly regular matches we are playing at that level.

“He’s also trained very well and away from the pitch has acquitted himself impeccably. He has deserved this contract, but he understands that it is just the start for him and he’s got a long way to go.”
