Blue Square Bet Premier side Luton Town have handed new 12-month contracts to veteran goalkeepers Kevin Pilkington and Mark Tyler.

Tyler, 34, has been the Hatters' regular keeper in 2010/11, making 50 appearances in all competitions.

Pilkington, 37, deputised for his team-mate 14 times.

"It's fantastic that both Mark and Kevin have agreed to commit their immediate futures with Luton Town," boss Gary Brabin told the club website.

"Together they work hard in training and have an excellent relationship, they are always learning new things off one another.

"They have almost 1,000 games experience between them and I doubt there are many clubs that can boast that amount of experience and know-how.

"It's great news and a statement of how much this club means to them that they want to stay here."
