Barely a week ago, Kenyan-born defender Curtis Osano had expressed optimism that his contract with England’s Conference National League side Lutton Town will be renewed.
However, yesterday [Tuesday 29 May] he was a confirmed signee of League Two’s AFC Wimbledon.
As exciting as the move maybe for the 25-year old, he regards it a necessary decision in the progression of his career, though it may appear like a betrayal to Luton fans.
-I played a full part for Luton and to lose in the play-off final at Wembley was heartbreaking, bedfordshire-news.co.uk.
-I enjoyed it at Luton and I learned a lot from both Gary Brabin and Paul Buckle, the two managers, during my time there.
-There was 30,000 fans there who came to support us and I think when we came off the pitch they knew that we had given our all.
-I think they will understand why I have left. It is not a case of me jumping ship, it is because I want to progress.
-I think if you ask any player who has a chance to move up to the Football League, they will take it.
Osano, who had been with Rushden and Diamond prior to joining Luton, played 31 league matches for the Hatters [Luton Town].
