Ken’s Comment: Congratulations Luke
March 13, 2018
Bristol Rovers Supporters Club Committee and members congratulate Luke Russe for making his League debut last Saturday at Stadium MK; a day to remember for Luke with a debut, glowing reports on his performance, a clean sheet and three points from an impressive away win. Former Youth Team player Ellis Harrison scored the winner with a wonder goal from the left. Alongside Luke in mid-field was another youth protégé and senior pro Chris Lines and behind him was former under 18’s skipper, club captain and full Welsh international Tom Lockyer.
Luke joined the Academy aged ten, was offered a scholarship aged 16 and picked up the SC Youth Payer of the Year award last season. He has continued to progress with fine performances in the Central Reserve League this season. Chris Hargreaves tells me that he is very proud of all of his boys and you know what, so are we Chris.
Jim Chappell and myself take in as many development and youth games as we can as do a good number of our members. It came as no surprise to any of us to see Luke follow in the footsteps of Chris, Ollie, Ellis and Tom. We would say “Watch this space” because there are more to come. It is testament to the very good work we are doing at Bristol Rovers.
