Evo-Stik League South Premier club Hitchin Town have taken young midfielder Kavan Cotter on a month`s loan from SkyBet League Two side Luton Town.
The 18-year-old signed his first professional contract with the Hatters this summer after captaining the youth team and making his senior debut in the Checkatrade Trophy last season, when he played at right-back in the 2-1 win at Gillingham.
With the Hatters’ permission, he has appeared for Mark Burke’s side in their recent pre-season games against St Albans City and Arlesey Town, and he is eligible for the Canaries’ league opener at Merthyr Town tomorrow.
Academy and development manager Andy Awford told Luton`s official website: “It’s an opportunity for Kav to get some football under his belt and it’ll be good for him to be playing against men in a really competitive league.
“He’s at the next stage of his development now having come out of the youth team, and we are grateful to Hitchin for providing the opportunity.
“We’ve got a really good relationship with Mark and Hitchin in general, so we know we’ll get good feedback and that he’ll be well looked after while he’s with them”.
