Henry returns for his second spell at Broadhall Way, whilst Whelpdale and Walton sign from Gillingham and Hartlepool respectively.

Hemel born Henry captained Luton back to the Football League last season but returns to Boro and boss Graham Westley.

Westley managed the defender during his first spell at the club, where the 30-year-old played nearly 300 times.

Former Peterborough midfielder Whelpdale, turned down a new deal with League One side Gillingham to link up with Westley’s side.

The 25-year-old played over 100 games in a three-year stay at Priestfield and he will be looking to add a fifth career Football League promotion.

He gained a double promotion with the Posh from League Two to the Championship between 2007-2009 as well as promotion back to the English second tier during the 2010-11 season.

He then helped Gillingham regain League One status during the 2012-13 campaign in his second full season at the Kent club.
