Today, Luton Town signed strikers Tom Craddock and Wayne Andrews.

Middlesbrough forward Tom Craddock has arrived and on a one month loan deal and former Coventry striker Wayne Andrews has been landed on a short term deal until January.

An FA Youth Cup winner with Middlesbrough in 2003/04, Tom Craddock made his first team debut for Boro at the end of 2005/06 season after scoring over 20 goals for the reserve side. Craddock made a loan move to Wrexham in October 2006, scoring on his debut but picked up an injury in the same match, which saw him return to the North East for treatment. His excellent form for Boro's second string has continued, and it's hoped he can transfer this goal scoring touch into League 2. Craddock trained with the Hatters today after Mick Harford saw him in a reserve match on Tuesday.

Pacey forward Wayne Andrews was a free agent after his release from Coventry City FC. Andrews began his career in the non-league set up, having successful periods at St Albans, Aldershot and Chesham. His fine form alerted then Oldham boss Iain Dowie, with whom he had another successful time scoring 11 goals in his first season. Since then he has had spells at Colchester, Crystal Palace, Coventry City and has trained with The Hatters all week featuring in a reserve game on Wednesday. Blessed with blistering pace and power, Andrews will also add some much needed experience to the Hatter's young side.

Andrews and Craddock will wear shirt numbers 23 and 24 respectively, and will go straight into the squad to face Accrington Stanley tomorrow.
