Luke Wade-Slater is the young right-sided player who made the move from Dublin club St Kevin’s Boys in summer 2015. The player arrived at Boro’ with the ability to play in either defence or midfield. He impressed during the club’s FA Youth Club run in 2015-6, as well as appearing in a number of non-first team matches. After turning pro with us in 2017, he then spent time on loan at Southern League side Kings Langley.
Wade-Slater came back to Boro’ after his time at Lango – but was on the move again not so long after. This time, however, it was going to be a permanent switch; the player going back to his native Ireland as League of Ireland side Bohemians came in for his services.
Luke Wade-Slater: After Boro’
With 35 appearances and three goals under his belt for Bohs, Wade-Slater moved on yet again in October 2020. This time, he went north of the border to sign for Larne FC of the NIFL Premiership. But it’d be a short, eight-month spell at Inver Park. In June 2021, local rivals (we think?) Warrenpoint Town came in for the player; snapping him up ahead of the new NIFL Premiership season.
