Luton Confirm Driver Appointment

Luton Town have confirmed that Paul Driver has been made the club’s permanent Youth Team Coach.

The former Rushden & Diamonds assistant manager joined the club in the summer to help develop a number of the club’s youth age groups and has now been appointed on a full-time basis.

“My job as a youth team coach is to work with a good group of players and turn it into something that in two years the manager is comfortable taking into the development squad with a view to a year after that, getting them into the professional side of it,” Driver told the Leighton Buzzard Observer.

“We’re working on the things we need to work on, on the pitch and off the pitch, and turning it into something that the gaffer can make use of in a couple of years’ time.”

“I had seven years at Rushden, a couple of years working in development centres, five years as a youth coach and was assistant manager to Justin Edinburgh at the end of last season.”

“I prefer the youth side and prefer to be in control of what I’m doing and the players I’m working with. That’s why I didn’t try to get another assistant job and I looked to get back into youth development.”
