Luton Town FC have hired Graeme Jones as their new manager. He takes over from Mick Harford, who has secured the club Championship promotion. Harford was only hired as caretaker manager in January after Nathan Jones left to join Stoke.

Graeme Jones has been hired on a three-year contract. He comes from a position of assistant coach at West Brom. According to a statement from the club, the Hatters’ board made a deal with Jones in February but has waited on further arrangements to avoid disrupting the two clubs’ seasons.
