Salisbury City midfielder Rob Sinclair is looking forward to a reunion with former employers Luton Town.
Now 20, the youngster spent a decade as part of the Hatters Youth system which included a 2-year Apprenticeship but he was released without making a first team appearance.
And with the Hatters visiting the Raymond McEnhill Stadium today in the Blue Square Premier it is a fixture that Sinclair is relishing:
“To play them will be brilliant – they’ll bring many fans. You get a bigger buzz when you play against your former Club,” he told BBC Wiltshire.
“I started off at eight in the Centre of Excellence and worked my way up through the ranks. They were the best team around where I’m from to play for.”
“It’s always your dream to get in the first team but it didn’t work out so I came to Salisbury where it has.”
At Luton he was coached by the now Hatters Manager Mick Harford and is well aware just how big a Club they are in the Blue Square Premier.
“Things weren’t run properly with the finances and it catches up with you in the end. Now they’ll rebuild and hopefully for them they’ll start to move on again but they are a non-league Club at the moment and they have to earn the respect to get out of the non-league.”
