Former Loanee Stacey Signs for Luton

Jack Stacey, who played on loan for Exeter last season, has signed for League rivals Luton Town for an unknown fee.

Jack Stacey will forever be remembered at St James Park for his injury time goal in the play off semi-final against Carlisle that sent the Grecians to the League 2 play off finals at Wembley.

Jack played 38 times for Exeter last season, while on loan from Reading 30 of those games he started. Just the one goal, but what a goal!

Stacey speaking to at Kenilworth Road said of the move:-

The manager has told me about the lads and how they are all great lads, how it’s a culture where everyone wants to improve and the facilities at the training ground really give everyone opportunity to do that. I’m looking forward to coming in, improving my own game and hopefully helping Luton Town improve.

I’ve had a season with Exeter that really helped me, I felt I really improved as a player. The year before that I was at Carlisle for a couple of months, so I’ve learned from both those spells and hopefully now I’m coming to Luton as a permanent player, I can just help myself kick on in my career.

As good as winning the semi-final of the play-offs was, I felt just as bad after we lost at Wembley. That is another part of me coming here, because I want to make up for that and get promoted this season.

I spoke to the manager and he outlined his vision for the club, and how the main aim of the season is to get promoted. That’s why I’m here.
