Former Wolves boss
Despite the club’s recent relegation, Luton Town are set to announce the appointment of former Wolves boss Rob Edwards as the new first team manager. Edwards has had an impressive playing career, including a stint in the Premier League with Blackpool. He has also managed AFC Telford United, the Wolves Academy and England Under-16s.
He took over as head coach of the England U16s in 2020. After leaving the position, Edwards was appointed as head coach of Forest Green Rovers, where he led the club to promotion to League One last season. He was named League Two Manager of the Season for the 2021-22 season.
The former Wolves defender is one of the most sought after young managers in the EFL. He has a strong reputation for developing young players. His first season in charge was a success, according to the local newspaper Express & Star.

England U16s head coach
Currently, Edwards is in advanced talks to become Luton’s new manager. He will replace Nathan Jones, who left for Southampton last week.
Rob Edwards is a former player, having played for Wolves, Aston Villa and Blackpool. He also worked as an assistant coach for Wolves’ U23’s. Edwards was also the head coach of England’s under 16s. He led the side to a 1-1 draw with Norwich City in August.
Edwards is an exciting young coach, having worked in the UK and abroad for several years. He can bring a similar style of football to the Hornets, which could be a boost to their aspirations for a top-flight return.
Rob Edwards has also coached England’s Under-20s. He took the side to a record-breaking youth level. He also managed the Wolves academy.
Callum McManaman set to become first signing of the Graeme Jones era
Graeme Jones is taking over as manager of Luton Town from Mick Harford. Luton have been in the relegation zone since 18 months ago and Jones has brought in six players. One of them is the club’s record signing, Callum McManaman. This player is set to make his Luton debut on Tuesday against Derby County.
The Luton striker is just shy of the number of goals his strike partner, James Collins, has scored. His goal conversion rate of 20% is good, but he has missed twelve big chances, which is just the same as the likes of Alexander Mitrovic.
The defenders have a decent mix of experience and youth. Martin Cranie will start at right-back, while Kazenga Lualua will play in the centre of defence.
Reaction to Nathan Jones’ sacking at Watford
Considering that Nathan Jones has just departed his current position as manager at Luton Town, it’s not surprising that the reaction has been quite mixed. However, there are a few positives to take away from the move, most notably the fact that Luton have been unbeaten in seven games and have improved considerably since the start of the season.
One of the most noteworthy aspects of the move was the fact that Luton were given the green light to speak to Southampton about the vacancy. This was something Jones had been rumoured to be considering for quite some time, and he’s now signed a three-and-a-half-year contract at St Mary’s.
Jones was in attendance for Southampton’s League Cup tie against Sheffield Wednesday. This was not his first foray into the game, but it was his first since taking over at Luton.
