Luka Glavas (Croatian: Luka Glavaš; born 20 January 1985 in Sydney) is a former Australian footballer.

Biography[edit]

Luka Glavas played for Hurstville Zagreb from 2003-2004, Melbourne Knights from 2004-2005 and Sydney United from 2005-2006. In the 2006 NSW Premier League Grand Final against Blacktown City Demons, Glavas scored all four goals in a 4–0 win for Sydney United.

Glavas then joined Perth Glory in mid-2006. Glavas scored his first ever A-League goal against Sydney FC on 29 October 2006. However, he was generally disappointing during his time at Perth Glory. At the end of the 2006–2007 A-League season, Perth advised Glavas that he was one of five players to be released by the club.[1]

On 13 February 2007, Sydney FC announced Glavas had signed with the club and was included in the squad for the AFC Champions League 2007.[2]

Glavas was released by Sydney at the completion of their ACL campaign and signed with Heidelberg United in the Victorian Premier League.[3]

In 2008 Glavas returned to Sydney United and returned to goalscoring form in the NSW Premier League. Glavas was Sydney United's top goalscorer in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013.[4]

The talismanic striker retired on 24 August 2014, playing his last match against Sutherland Sharks in the last round of the 2014 National Premier Leagues NSW.[5]
