Luton Town defender Jake Howells signed his first professional contract at Kenilworth Road last week.
The left-footed 18 year old joined the Hatters as an Apprentice in 2007 and made his first-team debut on the final day of the 2007/08 season against Huddersfield Town at the age of 17.
He has been rewarded for a string of fine performances with a two-year contract with the Club.
Howells made 36 appearances last season and scooped Luton’s Young Player of the Year award.
He also earned a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy winners medal despite not being involved in Mick Hanford’s 16-man final squad having played in all five of the Hatter’s matches leading up to the final.
