Meade thrilled to represent his hometown club
Playing for his hometown club was a draw that new Town loan signing Jernade Meade simply couldn’t turn down, writes Mike Simmonds.
The 21-year-old, who was born in Lewsey Farm and went to Halyard High School, which is now Barnfield West Academy, also played for Bramingham FC before a move to Premier League giants Arsenal.
He left the Emirates to join Swansea City in the summer though and, speaking exclusively to the News/Gazette, he said: “Luton came to Swansea last week and said they wanted me on loan and I thought it was a great opportunity.
“I grew up in Luton, but have never played for them, so I can’t wait.
“Growing up here all my life, I think it will be a great experience, a good opportunity and a massive club as well.”
