HATTERS have announced their ninth summer signing of the summer with goalkeeper Dean Brill penning a two year deal.

The Luton-born stopper came through the ranks at Kenilworth Road and made 97 appearances for the club before leaving at the end of 2009/10 season – a campaign that saw the 6ft 3in stopper pick up a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy winners medal.

Brill then joined Oldham Athletic, staying at Boundary Park for two seasons, before moving to Barnet, where he helped the Bees avoid relegation into the Conference.

He was released in the summer and has impressed Town boss Paul Buckle during his side’s pre-season schedule.

On the signing, Buckle said: “Dean has been outstanding for us since he joined the squad for pre-season training.

“It’s a testament to his attitude, experience and performances – in training and in friendlies – that we have decided to tie him to a two-year deal.

“His experience for a player his age is a huge asset to us and anybody who has seen him in action this pre-season will be aware of his presence on the pitch and ability between the posts.

“It gives us added competition in the goalkeeping department – something myself, the coaches, and the goalkeepers themselves – are all relishing.

“Dean knows the club well, too, which is another bonus. He’s a Luton lad who is desperate to get his home-town club back in the Football League.”
