Brabs joins the Hatters in scouting role

FORMER TNS midfielder and assistant manager Gary Brabin has been appointed chief scout of Luton Town.

Conference manager of the season with Cambridge United last year after missing out on promotion to the Football League in the play-off final, Brabin will work with newly-appointed manager Richard Money at Kenilworth Road.
The news comes just four weeks after the departure of manager Mick Harford and managing director Gary Sweet said: "We're delighted. We fully stand behind our vision for the club, and to have the knowledge, experience and achievements of these two men, here today, is fantastic."
With more than 200 Football League appearances under his belt for Torquay, Hull City, Blackpool, Bury and Doncaster Rovers, Brabs first joined TNS in 2002 from Chester City and went on to make 47 league starts before suffering a bout of breathlessness at Connah's Quay in February 2004.
He decided to retire from the game on medical advice and joined Unibond Leaguers Witton Albion as assistant manager, but surprisingly resurrected his playing career in summer 2005 with moves to Halifax Town, Southport and Burscough.
He returned as TNS assistant manager in June 2007, leaving with manager Ken McKenna in March last year.
