Striker Aribim Pepple grabbed a brace as Luton Town U21s defeated Chelsea U21s in a friendly at the Blues’ Cobham training ground this afternoon.

Town gave midfielder Glen Rea another run-out as he prepares to make his loan move to Cheltenham Town, while Casey Pettit captained the side, with Joe Johnson, an unused sub in the 3-0 FA Cup defeat at Grimsby Town last week, also starting.

Defender Ben Tompkins was on target as well, as he tweeted afterwards: “Good shift from the boys, nice to grab a goal.”

Meanwhile, U21s lead coach Adrian Forbes added: “Fantastic performance from the boys today.

"Proud of the group and how they put into practice everything we have been working on in training #COYH.”
