Luton Town have signed Welling United striker Ross Lafayette on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old hit 17 goals in 41 games last season for the Kent club in the Conference.

Lafayette previously played for Hemel Hempstead and Wealdstone before joining Welling.

“Ross is a player we have had on our radar for a number of years, he’s always someone we’ve had in mind," manager John Still told the club's official website.

"Ross has a lot of ingredients which make him an ideal signing. He’s quick, he’s strong and he knows how to score goals.

“Ross knows that he’s got to work his absolute socks off to do well at Luton Town to be a success and I back him 100 per cent to do exactly that.”
