Hibs keeper Matt Macey joins Luton Town in 100k deal

Last updated : 22 June 2022 By Steve Forbes

Hibs keeper Matt Macey has today, finally, completed a move to English side Luton Town.

The 27-year-old has joined the Championship outfit for an undisclosed fee. thought to be £100,000, with future add-ons and a sell-on fee included in the deal.

6ft 7in Macey joined the Hibees from Arsenal, and initially played back-up to Ofir Marciano.

Once Rocky departed for Feyenoord last summer, Macey stepped up to become No.1.

Hibs have signed Scotland international David Marshall this summer, which would most likely have pushed the Englishman back down to No.2.

He made 56 appearances for the Hibees.

Hibs CEO Ben Kensell said:

“We’d like to thank Matt for his contribution and efforts during his time at the Club.

"On and off the pitch, Matt was a model professional and we wish him all the best for the future.

"To grow Hibernian FC and to provide further transfer funds for our squad, player trading is vital, alongside increasing our club-controlled income.

"I’d like to thank Luton for the way negotiations were conducted and we believe we’ve got a really beneficial deal for our football club.”


Good luck to Matt with his new club.

He was a pretty reliable keeper, despite what nonsense you read from experts on the likes of twitter.

Matt had some good display's in a Hibs shirt, and he was FAR from being one of the poorer Hibs keepers.

However the Hibees have landed the superb David Marshall, and you can't blame him for wanting to leave.

Macey played in a Scottish Cup Final, a League Cup Final and tasted European Football at Easter Road.
