Burnley X-Files: Hatters Debut for O'Connor

Luton Town have signed former Burnley midfielder Garreth O'Connor on a short-term contract following a trial period at Kenilworth Road.

O'Connor obviously impressed Luton boss, Mick Hartford enough during his three-week trial spell with the Hatters. A spell in which he scored three goals in two Reserve team appearances.

The troubled League 2 side have agreed a three-month deal with the 29 year old.

Hatters gaffer Mick Harford told Luton's official website:

'It's no secret I've been looking for wide players and to add some experience to our squad after our recent injuries.

'Garreth's got a great chance to make a name for himself - he knows what we expect of him so he know has his chance to deliver.'

He looks likely to play in Luton's next match against Brentford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Garreth O`Connor was released by Owen Coyle this summer after 38 League appearances and 7 goals for the Clarets during a three-year spell at Turf Moor. Steve Cotterill signed the Irish man on a Bosman in May 2005 after making his name with AFC Bournemouth, a club he would return to on loan during his time with the Clarets.

Well done Gaz! I assume the short contract has more to do with Luton's financial plight that O'Connor's capabilities?

Played last night and assisted in one of the goals.Luton 2-2 Brentford (4-3 on pens) Luton came from two goals down to dump in-form Brentford out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on penalties. The visitors went in front when Glenn Poole hammered in from 30 yards and they were 2-0 up when Marvin Williams rounded Conrad Logan to slot home. Luton pulled one back as Asa Hall headed in from an Ed Asafu-Adjaye cross and they levelled when Chris Martin nodded home Garreth O'Connor's centre. Then Logan saved two spot-kicks and Rossi Jarvis tucked home the winner.

Good luck to the lad. I thought whilst he is no star..he was sound when he played for the CLARETS. Always remember his goal against Wolves !
