BRENTFORD SIGN ANDRE GRAY FROM LUTON TOWN

27 June 2014

Skrill Premier top goalscorer joins Brentford on three-year deal.

Brentford have this morning completed the signing of Luton Town striker Andre Gray for an undisclosed fee. 
The 23-year-old signed a three-year deal at Griffin Park and joins ahead of the pre-season tour to Florida.
The Wolverhampton born striker scored 30 goals in the Skrill Premier for The Hatters last season as they won promotion back to the Football League after a five year absence. 
Andre started his career at Shrewsbury Town and made his debut as an 18-year-old on the opening day of the 2009-10 season. 
Following loan spells at Telford United and Hinckley United, Andre signed permanently for Hinckley and went on to score 29 goals in 66 games for the Conference North side. 
Those goals attracted the attention of Luton Town and they signed Andre on loan in March 2012 before completing his permanent signing that summer. 
In just over two years at Kenilworth Road Andre scored 52 goals in 97 league appearances which earned him a call up to the England C team. 
Andre made 6 appearances in total for the England C team, scoring twice, and helping the side reach the Semi-Final of the International Challenge trophy.
Speaking after Andre had completed his move to Griffin Park Manager Mark Warburton said: “We are always looking to add value to the playing squad with individuals who can make significant contributions both on and off the pitch and who have excellent development potential. 
“Andre is a player we have tracked and who has just completed an outstanding season in helping Luton achieve promotion and a return to the Football league. 
“Andre has tremendous pace, good movement and a clear eye for goal.
“We are delighted to have secured him for the start of pre-Season. 
“As a football department we look forward to welcoming Andre on board and have no doubts he will make a very positive impact at Championship level.”
