Second year pro Jamie Lucas has today joined National League side Boreham Wood in a one month loan deal.
The young striker, who spent time on loan at Weston super Mare and Gloucester City last season, which aided his development as a player and this step up will prove to be a big advantage for him. He goes straight into the newly promoted Boreham Wood squad for tomorrow’s home game against FC Halifax Town.
“I feel that Jamie benefitted greatly from his time out on loan last season,” said manager Darrell Clarke, “and it’s important that he now steps up to play at a higher level. This is an important season for him and I’m delighted he is going to a club just one league below us to further his football education.”
Swansea born Jamie was actually brought up in Bromsgrove and spent a season with Bristol Rovers Central, an outreach Development Group of the club based in Henley in Arden.
A prolific striker for our youth team, he completed two years as a scholar in the summer of 2014, although he had been offered a pro deal at the end of his first year, following an outstanding season for our U-18 side in 2012/13 when they completed a league and cup double.
He made his Rovers debut in our home game against Rochdale on 21st May 2014, when going on as a late substitute at the Memorial Stadium.
Jamie spent time on loan at Gloucester City last season as well as two loan spells with Weston-Super-Mare.
