Hill Luton bound?

English Barclays Premiership

Ricky Hill could be on his way to manage Luton Town, the club where he started his career as a professional footballer.

The Nationwide Division Two club has sought permission from us to approach our under-17 coach regarding the position after the new owners of the club ended Lennie Lawrence's contract earlier in the week.

Director of football David Pleat said the club would be sorry to see him leave but understood it was a big step in his career. Reports have also linked QPR striker Iain Dowie with the post.

Hill, who joined the club to be under-17 coach, represented Brent district and Middlesex county in schools football before joining Luton as an Associated Schoolboy in 1974. Within a year he was an apprentice and signed as a professional in 1976.

He won a League Cup winners' medal with Luton in 1988 and gained three full England caps as well as representative honours at Youth and under-21 levels.

He moved to France to play for Le Havre for one season, returning to play for Leicester City for another single term and then joined Tampa Bay Rowdies as a player-coach where he was named 'Coach of the Year'.

Still with the Tottenham staff, a member of the security team at the Spurs Lodge training ground has beaten the experts in the club's own Euro2000 sweep! Terry Giddings won the top prize with his predictions.

Philip Cartwright, from the Conference Centre, was second and press officer John Fennelly was third.
