Brentford Development Squad striker Luke Norris returns from loan at Northampton Town

Development Squad striker Luke Norris has returned from a loan spell at Sky Bet League Two Northampton Town.

The 20-year-old joined the Sky Bet League Two side in October.

He scored five goals in his first six games but then did not start for The Cobblers between November 23 and Boxing Day, December 26.

He picked up an injury in Northampton’s game against Portsmouth on Sunday, December 29.

With his loan due to expire after Northampton play Newport County tomorrow, Saturday January 4, he has returned to Brentford a few days early.

Luke ended his loan spell as Northampton’s top scorer and was named The Cobblers’ Player of the Month for October.

Luke, who is on a Development Squad contract, played three games for Brentford’s First Team this season before joining Northampton and scored in a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over AFC Wimbledon.

He has scored one in four games for the Development Squad in the Under-21 Professional Development League Two South this season.

Luke has been at Brentford since the summer of 2010, when he signed a scholarship.

He turned professional in the summer of 2012 after excelling in the Youth Team and signed a new one-year Development Squad contract in the summer.

The striker finished as Brentford’s top scorer in the Professional Development League last season, hitting ten goals in 18 games.

Luke played seven games for Boreham Wood in the Conference South last season, scoring three goals.

He made his Brentford debut as a 17-year-old in April 2011 when he was a first-year scholar and has made five First Team appearances in total, scoring once.
