Next Luton Town manager: Emma Hayes and FOUR ex-Newcastle United men have outside chances


Sunderland-born Mick Harford took charge of Luton Town this weekend on an interim basis following the departure of Nathan Jones to Southampton.

Harford, who was born in Sunderland, is a popular figure within the game and indeed in the North East. Harford spent time at both the Black Cats and Newcastle United during his playing career, before becoming a successful trainer and coach after his retirement.
