Luke joins Northamptonshire for 2018 and brings with him the experience of playing in a Championship-winning side. He topped the batting averages for Lancashire when they claimed the title in 2011, the season after making the first of his 66 first-class appearances for the club. A graduate of Lancashire’s academy, the Oldham-born left-hander made his mark during that memorable summer for the Red Rose – not least with a knock of 89 against Sussex which included five sixes off Monty Panesar! He scored 822 runs in 2016, with a career-best 137 off Hampshire’s attack, but found opportunities limited last season and came to Wantage Road on loan. He shone with 82 and 94 in the County’s final Championship match against Leicestershire at Grace Road and subsequently signed for Northamptonshire to open a fresh chapter in his career.
