One of a number of disappointing loan strikers that have briefly come and gone at Twerton Park in recent years. Luke arrived having scored regularly while on loan at Weston Super Mare, Chelmsford City and Hednesford Town, and got off to a perfect start with a 40-yard goal on his debut against Team Bath. This was a false dawn though as he struggled to make any impact in subsequent games and returned to Cheltenham after two months at City. Has since played for Mangotsfield United, Gloucester City and Bishop's Cleeve. Now with Leamington, who he joined in May 2008.

In his short time with City tough tackling midfielder Mitch became a firm fans favourite. In just sixteen appearances following his switch from fellow Dr Martens League side Worcester City he managed to get sent off twice and score one of the goals of the season against Stafford Rangers. The 21-year old also played for Cirencester Academy and Bishops Cleeve before joining Worcester. Was released in somewhat mysterious circumstances in January 2004. A hand injury, sustained in a fall on some ice, had kept him out of action and before he could return he had left due to 'personal reasons'.
