Former Pompey manager Andy Awford has been appointed as Luton Town’s Youth Academy and Development Manager.
His arrival at Kenilworth Road brings an end to talk that he could have been handed a role at Fratton Park following his departure from the Blues’ hot seat in April.
Speaking to Luton Town’s official website, lutontown.co.uk, Hatters chief executive Gary Sweet said: ‘We are privileged to have somebody of Andy’s credentials at our club at this particular level and at this time.
‘Now that we are back as a fully-fledged Football League club, Andy will be responsible for managing our EPPP3 status. We won’t be expecting that status just to be consolidated, but for it also to be progressed under his stewardship.
‘We see Andy as the perfect man to help us achieve this, but he will also be tasked with helping young professionals develop following their transition from the youth team.
‘On behalf of everyone at Kenilworth Road I’d like to welcome Andy to Luton Town, and look forward to seeing the results that his experience and expertise is sure to bring.’
