Luton Town have unveiled former Stevenage captain Ronnie Henry as their first signing of the summer on a two-year deal.

The Hemel-born defender joins the Hatters having spent seven successful years at Broadhall Way in which he helped the Hertfordshire side twice win promotion and twice lift the FA Trophy.

Primarily an attacking and assured right-back, the 28-year-old began his career as a youngster at Tottenham Hotspur, but after a loan spell with Southend United in 2003, he joined Dublin City in Ireland in 2004 for four months before returning to England to sign for Stevenage.

He went onto make 329 appearances for Boro to become their fourth highest appearance holder, playing key roles in their title winning side in the Blue Square Bet Premier in 2009/10 and their subsequent play-off final victory over now Luton boss Paul Buckle's Torquay side in the following campaign that earned a second successive promotion.

In the season just passed, Henry made 40 appearances in League 1, helping Stevenage to another play-off appearance. But, having received an offer of a new contract with Boro and from a string of Football League sides, he opted to sign on the dotted line for the Town.
