Hatters fans are in for a treat with the signing of Trinidad and Tobago international Carlos Edwards – that's the view of former Town keeper Andy Dibble.

The 40-year-old stopper believes Edwards will thrill the Kenilworth Road faithful with his attacking wingplay next season.

And Dibble should know what he is talking about having spent the past three campaigns with the 26-year-old flanker at Wrexham.

Dibble, remembered fondly by Town fans for his 1988 penalty save from Nigel Winterburn in the Littlewoods Cup final win over Arsenal, told The News-Gazette: "Carlos is a very, very strong attacking player with a lot of pace and he can play in either wing-back position or further forwards.

"He's versatile and also has a really decent strike on the ball and I've seen him score plenty of goals from outside the penalty area.

"He's an exciting player and I think the fans will only be impressed by what they see. He's also a smashing bloke off the pitch and should fit in well down at Luton. I can only see him getting better and better down there."

Edwards, who will miss the majority of Luton's pre-season after being called up to the Trinidad and Tobago side for the CONCACAF Gold Cup in America, also impressed against the Hatters for Wrexham last season.

He set up Andy Holt for Wrexham's opener in their 2-1 loss to Luton at the Racecourse Ground in April – the game Hatters claimed the League One title.

Looking back on that day, Dibble said: "It was mixed emotions really, because obviously I didn't want Wrexham to lose as we were fighting relegation, but at the same time it was great to see my old club win the league.

"I'm still very fond of Luton Town. I've got some strong feelings for the club and some great memories from my time there."

With Wrexham in administration, Dibble is now looking at finding a new club. He said: "I'm in a bit of limbo with Wrexham at the moment.

"Because the club's in administration they don't know if they can offer me a new deal next season.

"I've just turned 40 and people may think 'he's past it now', but I've got plenty to offer either playing or as a coach with all my experience."
