Bio Extra

For an undisclosed fee and the promise of a Glenafton Athletic vs. Partick Thistle pre-season match, the signing of this defensive midfielder was announced on New Years Day 2024, the first day of the January transfer window. This followed a two month trial period with Thistle; an 18 month contract was the deal, with the club holding an option to extend for a further year.

Luke arrived in Maryhill having completed a football scholarship in the USA between 2018 and 2022. Starting at Lindenwood University in Missouri, he played 32 times netting 12 goals during his Freshman and Sophomore years. After transferring to Monmouth University in New Jersey, Luke continued to combine his football development with academic studies. Arriving back in Scotland in late 2022, Luke spent 2022-23 on the books of East Kilbride before signing for Ryan Stevenson's Glenafton Athletic during the summer of 2023.

Just 24 hours after being announced as a Jag, Luke got his first taste of Firhill tension when he was introduced in stoppage time for Stuart Bannigan, as Thistle wound the clock down in a 3-2 win over Queen's Park to get the New Year off to a good start. Phew. And just a few minutes later, Luke was over signing autographs for happy young Jags fans!
