Former Hatters defender Simon Ainge has joined Town’s Conference rivals FC Halifax Town.

The 25-year-old who was made available for transfer by Luton at the end of last season, had been released from his contract on Thursday along with midfielder Danny Spiller.

He was quickly snapped up by the newly-promoted side though and tweeted: “Delighted to have everything sorted so quickly!! And can’t wait to meet all the lads and get going for Halifax!”

Ainge had made 27 appearances for Luton, scoring twice, and on leaving the club, tweeted: “Thanks for all the kind messages!! I wish Luton all the best next season great club and a great bunch of lads!”
