Luton Town Recalls Pepple From Loan
Former Cavalry forward Aribim Pepple has now seen his second loan spell away from Luton Town end without significant minutes.
The 21-year-old striker returns to the Hatters following a loan spell at non-league side Bromley, where he tallied six league appearances but hadn’t featured on the pitch for them over the three months.
His time at Hayes Lane looked to start off with a spark with a brace in the London Senior Cup, but that would be the last time Pepple found the back of the net. His prior loan spell saw him head to League Two side Grimbsy Town, where he garnered 436 minutes of game time split across fifteen appearances.
He has yet to feature for Luton Town itself, who achieved promotion to the Premiership after signing Pepple from Cavalry in the summer of 2022.
The Kettering-born striker was in the midst of record-breaking form at the CPL level when Luton brought him in, with Pepple having scored six goals in his last five games before Cavalry granted him an ‘overseas leave’ to trial with his English suitors.
After that, Pepple was soon spotted on the bench for Luton’s preseason match against Northampton, the first sign that the club had hijacked the Forest Green Rovers‘ transfer target – though that was as close as Pepple had gotten to featuring for Luton Town itself.
Pepple had ‘toured’ himself over in England before, having trialed with both Sheffield United and Leicester City back in 2021 before eventually landing with the Getafe U-19 squad in Spain, where he scored on his debut ahead of a CPL return.
The 21-year-old will be hoping the third time is indeed the charm, especially after seeing his subsequent loan spell to a lower level result in little minutes for a youngster who had seen been lighting up Canada’s top flight – though we’re certain Cavalry would welcome him back if the opportunity to loan him back comes about.
