Career[edit]

Aarhus[edit]

Lumb was born in Aarhus, Denmark to a Danish mother and an English father. He is left-footed and plays left back. He came from AGFs 1988-born Danish Youth Championship-winning team, a side that included Morten Beck Andersen, Frederik Krabbe, Michael Vester, Niels Kristensen, Jesper Blicher and Anders Syberg. Lumb was named the young gun "Shooting Star" of the autumn season 2007–08 by the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.

Despite his youth age, Lumb has played more than 100 matches for AGF in the Superliga and First Division.

On 11 January 2010, it was reported on AGF's website that he was moving to Zenit Saint Petersburg in the Russian Premier League.[1]

Zenit[edit]

Lumb signed a three-year contract with Sine-Belo-Golubye.[2] In Zenit, Lumb faced a tough competition for a left back position with likes of Slovak international Tomáš Hubočan, and as a result didn't play much.[3] Lumb played for the first team just twice in the first half of 2010 season, and the arrival of another international left defender Aleksandar Luković meant he had to move to get any playing minutes.

Lumb was initially loaned out to Dutch side Feyenoord, but the move proved unsuccessful, as he was of cause relegated to the bench and then in the stands.[3] He was subsequently recalled and loaned to his homeland club AaB Fodbold.

Lumb returned to Zenit in summer 2011, to a team that, in addition to Hubočan and Luković, had signed Italy national team left wing-back Domenico Criscito. Lumb spend the rest of the year playing for the reserves, occasionally as a centre-back.

After having been on trial[4] first, Lumb was signed by SC Freiburg on 17 January 2012 until the end of the season on a loan deal.[5]

Bochum[edit]

On 25 January 2013, Lumb signed a contract until the end of the season with VfL Bochum.[6]

FC Vestsjælland[edit]

On the 19 June 2013, Lump signed a two-year contract with FCV.[7]
