And here is another debutant for the club! His first match was against Shirebrook Town just this last week, but even at 16 year old his potential is obvious. I had a chat with Lucas to find out a little bit more about him…

What is your favourite position to play?
“Central attacking midfield, but I don’t mind any attacking position.”

What made you want to sign for Selby Town?
“I knew Christian Fox to be a good manager to give young players a chance to advance ,and also because they play attacking football which I enjoy.”
Anything else about yourself that will help supporters learn a bit more about you?
“I am 16 years old, from York, and study at Huntington school. I play Fifa and Fortnite on Xbox, and love to watch Soccer am when I don’t have football on Saturdays. I’d like to progress my football career as far as I can in the future, but I am also hoping to go further with my education and move onto university to give an alternative pathway.”
