Hardy fails to measure up
Phil Hardy does not measure up according to Kinnear
Kinnear fears Hardy (right) is not big enough
Luton manager Joe Kinnear has sent trialist Phil Hardy back to Port Vale - because he feels he is too small for Division Three football.

The 5ft 8in defender played for the Hatters' reserves in their 2-0 defeat to Brentford.

Kinnear was hoping Hardy would provide an alternative at the back with Marvin Johnson and Chris Coyne injured.

But the Hatters manager has decided the 28-year-old is not up to the task in the Third Division.

Kinnear said: "He is too small for this league.

"He was decent on the ball but I do not want any more small players and have decided against a deal."
