Luton Town pair Dylan Stitt and Sam Anderson with Keith Gillespie and Brian Adair from the One Two Agency
Premier League outfit Luton Town announced today that Northern Ireland teenagers Dylan Stitt and Sam Anderson have signed new two-year scholarships at Kenilworth Road.
The promising duo joined the Hatters in the summer fresh from the club’s promotion to the top flight of English football.
Midfielder Stitt was previously on the books at Linfield, while forward Anderson was with Dungannon Swifts – two Irish League clubs who in recent years have become renowned for transferring youngsters across the water.
Belfast born Stitt started playing football at St Oliver Plunkett when he was five and as a boy also played Gaelic games with St Galls before joining Linfield aged 11.
He made strides with the Blues, becoming a Northern Ireland youth international, scoring for his country against Australia Under-17s and being part of the JD Irish FA Academy prior to his move to Luton.
Like Stitt, forward Anderson joined Town in the summer on a two-year scholarship and one-year pro deal.
Last season Anderson made his Irish Premiership debut for Dungannon in their final match of the campaign and is a player with an eye for goal.
The former City of Armagh High School pupil has represented Northern Ireland Under-17s and was a regular when Gerard Lyttle was in charge before he took up the post of Cliftonville assistant manager.
Alongside Stitt and Anderson on their signing day was a man who knows all about playing for Premier League clubs, Keith Gillespie, who, in partnership with Brian Adair in the One Two football agency, represents the players.
