Ollie hit a hat-trick in the opening game of this season against
Norwich and notched an impressive 11 goals in 18 appearances.
It was that run of form that caught Norwichs eye and the
Canaries swooped to make Ollie the second player to sign from
the Hatters this season following goalkeeper Tyler
Readings move in February.

up the ladder. Its a move that is right for both Ollie and
Luton Town. This is a transfer that will once again show the pedigree

clubs in the fifth tier of a professional league in the world
that can boast this kind of track record and that is something
that we can be very proud of."

City on 30th April 2013, which the Canaries lost 4-1. Most of
their Under-18s were rested for the FA Youth Cup final.
