Luton Town Appoint Nathan Jones

Nathan JonesLuton Town have appointed Brighton & Hove Albion coach Nathan Jones as their new manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal at Kenilworth Road. Jones emerged as the scorching hot 1/10 favourite on Wednesday and proceeded to bag the job - beating off competition from David James and Chris Wilder - replacing John Still who was sacked in December.

The highly rated 42-year-old had been working at the Seagulls since July 2013, when he joined the south coast club as an assistant head coach to Oscar Garcia. After Garcia's departure the Welshman worked as a first team coach under Sami Hyypia, before taking charge of the first-team for two matches (W1 D1) following the Finn's departure. Under current boss Chris Hughton Jones firstly worked as an assistant, before returning to his previous role as first team coach.

Jones now ventures into the managerial arena for the first time with Luton, who are 15th in League Two after 25 matches. The Hatters are a safe distance above the relegation zone (13 points), but a reachable nine points off the top-7, although if they are to make the play-offs they simply have to improve, with the club winning just one of their last eight matches.

Jones now has a timely break before his first match in charge on Saturday 16th January against 11th-placed Cambridge, who sit six points above them in the table.
