Luke Norris Player Profile

Debut: Swansea City (H, 0-2), 09/01/2021  

After a difficult first half of the 2020-1 season, Boro’ signed Luke Norris from Colchester United for that extra oomph in attack. We hadn’t exactly excelled at scoring goals before Norris’ arrival; the low ‘Goals For’ tally being a big reason why we had only just escaped the bottom two at the turn of the year. But, in a major statement of intent from boss Alex Revell, Norris came in and certainly knew how to find the back of the net.

A native of our fair town, Norris came to us on a short-term deal that’d take him up to the end of the 2020-1 season to start with. It perhaps shows the caution that was around the footballing world at the time; the dreaded coronavirus forcing us into a ‘third’ lockdown at the time and raising doubts over the viability of the EFL season. That, and also that we’d still got a number of other striking options on our books. Hedging our bets?

Nah. Norris is an experienced lad and hopes were soaring high that he’d be the catalyst for a positive change in our fortunes during the second half of the 2020-1 season.

Luke Norris: Before Boro’

After starting out at Hitchin Town (boo hiss!), Norris secured a massive move upwards in summer 2010 when Brentford came a-calling. At first, he moved to Griffin Park on a two-year scholarship; making his professional debut in April 2011. He extended his stay by a further year with the Bees in 2013 and was reported to have caught our eye towards the end of the 2013-4 season. Of course, such a move did not materialise.

Instead, he made his way into Kent; signing for Gillingham. Such is the lack of information on this part of his career on Wikipedia that you’d think he was never there. He was though; scoring 15 times in around 80-or-so appearances. After two years at Priestfield, yet again came the time to move on; first to Swindon Town for two years, and then onto Colchester United in summer 2018 – despite recently signing a new deal with the Robins.
