Hand me Hatters over the Hornets says new Luton signing

ARCH rivals Watford don’t have the same loyal support Luton boast according to Hornet-turned-Hatter Jamie Hand, writes Mark Wood.

The much-travelled 27-year-old combative midfielder joined Hatters on loan from Blue Square Bet Premier rivals Hayes & Yeading on Friday with a view to a permanent move.

He was quick to praise Hatters’ loyal supporters after almost 6,000 of them helped to cheer Luton on to a 2-0 victory against Darlington as Hand made his debut on Saturday.

He said: “I’ve been to some big clubs like Peterborough and Northampton and this club is as big if not bigger than Watford.

“I would like to see how many fans they would get if they were in this division. The fans are great and I take my hat off to them.”
