Luton Town have announced that they will change the name of their stadium for one match - to raise awareness for a cancer charity.

Kenilworth Road will be called the Prostate Cancer UK Stadium for the League Two clash with Wycombe Wanderers next Tuesday (24 March).

The Hatters are the first Football League club to ever take the step.

“We are extremely proud to be the first club to partner with a charity such as Prostate Cancer UK by renaming our stadium, albeit temporarily.

When we first hinted at the idea we were met with a mixed reaction – which is understandable given the history of the ground, and the amount of affection our supporters hold for Kenilworth Road.

We felt sure that once the full story emerged about our supporting Prostate Cancer UK, our supporters would understand and fully support the move.

This is a first for Luton Town and a first in football and we are delighted to be teaming up with a charity which has supported the game, in particular supporters and players past and present, so well."

McGeehan also had a spell with Luton last season as the Hatters stormed to the Conference title, and manager John Still admits that he would love to have him back at Kenilworth Road.

"We've always said that we would take Cam here permanently.

We believe he would want to come to us but he's got to work with Norwich, so we'll keep knocking at the door with this like we have done and see what comes out. But we have been and are talking to Norwich."

Luton Town midfielder Matthew Robinson has signed a new contract with the club.

The fresh deal will keep the 20-year-old stay at Kenilworth Road until 2017.

Robinson has been a regular in the Hatters side since joining from Leicester City in 2012.

“Matthew has shown enormous maturity for a player so young, especially last season when we had a very youthful midfield in the latter half of the campaign.

He is one of many players that encapsulate what we are trying to do at this club. He’s young and hungry and always strives to better himself. Matthew is a great example to players of all ages because his attitude and work ethic has been second-to-none."
