Former Hatters trialist Lewis Kinsella has joined Luton’s League Two rivals Colchester United on a one year deal.

The 22-year-old, who spent a brief loan spell at Kenilworth Road under previous boss John Still, turned out for Luton in their 9-0 pre-season friendly win at Bedford Town recently.

However, boss Nathan Jones confirmed that the ex-Aston Villa left back wouldn’t be offered a contract with the club and he headed to the U’s, impressing during games with Ipswich Town and Crystal Palace, before agreeing to join on a permanent basis.
