Formerly on the books at United as an Academy player, Luke initially departed the club in 2012 and opted to ply his trade with Norfolk side Dereham Town, where he won an Eastern Counties League Premier Division winners medal.

He then enrolled at Northumbria University, studying Sports Science and, whilst working towards his degree, played for the University and South Shields on a dual registration. Luke was snapped up by Gateshead in 2016 and made 45 appearances before following Manager Neil Aspin to Port Vale during January 2018. An energetic and skilful presence on the left of midfield or in a more central attacking role, he was a popular figure at Vale Park and racked up 68 appearances for the League Two side, also scoring five goals. Luke made a return to the U’s in May 2018 following his surprise release by Vale, signing a two-year deal at the Abbey Stadium.
