Grimsby Town Football Club are delighted to announce the season-long loan signing of Luton Town defender, Akin Famewo.
The highly rated 19-year-old joins us immediately after signing a one year contract extension with The Hatters, keeping him at Kenilworth Road until 2020.
Famewo has been part of the Luton Town from an early age, joining the Academy at under-11 level and signed a professional contract in July 2016 at the start of his second year as a Scholar, after travelling with the club to their pre-season training camp in Hungary.
He made his competitive debut for The Hatters in August 2016, making a substitute appearance in a 2-1 victory over Newport County, replacing new Town signing, Jordan Cook in the 86th minute of the game. Famewo was awarded his first start for the club in the EFL Trophy later that month, before making his EFL debut away at Hartlepool United in September 2016 in a 1-1 draw.
During Luton's successful promotion campaign during the 17/18 season, Famewo went on to make 8 appearances in all competitions.
Mariners fans will have the chance to see the new signing tomorrow, as we travel to Cleethorpes Town for our opening pre-season fixture.
