Luke Thomas

Luke returned to the club a couple of seasons back having originally been forced to stop playing for the Old Boys as the commute from his new home in Dublin seemed a little too much every weekend. A highly respected, senior employee at work, Luke is anything but at the Old Boys.

Nicknamed “Binner” for his inability to iron a shirt or dress himself properly, everyone wants to be on his team in training – nothing to do with his footballing ability, but they simply want to avoid injury from his hatchet-man tackles. A no-nonsense, cliched “old-style” player, Luke is happy to hammer the ball into touch or drag someone back by their shirt rather than give the ball away, and will always claim a foul throw at least twenty times per game.
