Hatters give run-outs to Rea and Pereira in friendly match

Joe Taylor and Aribim Pepple were both on target for Luton U21s as they were beaten 4-3 by Fulham U21s in a friendly clash on Saturday.

The Hatters picked a side with first team experience for the contest, giving minutes to Glen Rea and Dion Pereira, who were both out on loan last season, as they had a trialist both in goal and defence as well.
