D.O.B. - 26/02/88

Debut : Stourbridge (H) - 16/08/08
Last Game : Lowestoft Town (A) - 27/10/09

Luke is a diminutive and pacy forward with an eye for goal.

The 2008/09 campaign will be Luke's second at this level after scoring nine times for a poor Mangotsfield United side last term following his thirty-six goal haul with Melksham Town in the Toolstation League the season before.

Luke is also a teammate of City's Alex Sykes in the England Futsal squad.

Grandfather - Brian Ballinger
