Player profiles: Luke Simpson

Luke Simpson was born on the 23rd September 1994 in Heywood, Greater Manchester.

Simpson began his career at Oldham Athletic and following three unused substitute appearances for the club at the start of the 2013/2014 season, Luke made the switch to Northern Premier League side Nantwich Town on a one month loan in August 2013.

December 2013 saw the goalkeeper moving to Cumbrian club Workington A.F.C. on a one month youth loan and in January 2014, the Mancunian shot-stopper would join Leicester City, who at the time were in the Championship, on a youth loan until the end of the 2013/2014 season.

In August 2014, Simpson signed for Accrington Stanley who were then competing in League 2 and in his debut, saved a second half penalty against Southend United’s Barry Corr who was playing for The Shrimpers at the time.

January 2015 saw the goalkeeper head to Hertforshire club Watford to play for the Under-21 side and at the end of the 2015/2016 season, he was released and headed on to pastures new.

In July 2016, Luke signed for newly relegated National League side York City, following a successful trial on a two year contract. Silkmen supporters will still feel the heartache of our 3-2 defeat to The Minstermen in the FA Trophy final on the 21st May 2017, where Simpson was an unused substitute for the Yorkshire club that day.

Luke was released at the end of the 2017/2018 season, with York City finishing 11th in the National League North, making one appearance in all competitions.

The man between the sticks signed on non-contract terms for The Silkmen on 2nd August 2018.
