Teenage attacker with a terrific strike during Cards' victory

Luton youngster Jayden Luker scored a stunning first ever goal in senior football when he was on target for Working in their National League clash against Oxford City on Tuesday night.

The 18-year-old had moved to the Cards back in January, making his debut in the 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield, before beginning the 1-0 victory at Oldham Athletic, plus the 1-0 home defeat to Boreham Wood on Saturday. He started a third match when up against the basement side in midweek at Kingfield Stadium, as with 38 minutes, he received the ball just outside the box and with his left foot, arrowed a brilliant shot into the top corner to put the hosts ahead.

It was added to in the second period by Lewis Walker’s penalty, as Luker almost set up a third, Ricky Korboa unable to turn in his cross, but Woking held on for a first home league win since August as they are now fifth from bottom, one point above the relegation zone. Cards chief Michael Doyle told the club's official website: “It was a great goal. He’s got that composure and I think anyone that’s watched the Oldham game, Chesterfield on Saturday he was quiet, they doubled up on him and he took himself out of the game, he’s learning his trade, he’s 18 years of age, but a great finish.

"I thought the all-round performance from him was really strong tonight. Against Oldham he was outstanding, he’s had some really good performances for an 18-year-old boy. We’re very lucky to have him and it’s important for us that we improve him for when he goes back to Luton. You make players better and hope they improve so they trust you with their players in the future and that’s what we want to create here.”
