Luke Vincent Conlan (born 31 October 1994) is a Northern Irish professional footballer who plays as a defender for Morecambe.

Club career[edit]

Born in Portaferry, County Down, Conlan attended St Columba's School in the town and played for junior clubs Grosvenor Youth and Portaferry.[3] He was recruited by Championship side Burnley in the summer of 2011, signing a two-year scholarship with the club.[4] He was a key member of the youth side that reached the 2011–12 FA Youth Cup semi-finals, eventually losing 3–1 to Blackburn Rovers on aggregate.[3]

In March 2012, whilst still a first-year apprentice, Conlan signed his first professional contract in a two-year deal.[5] He remained a regular in the youth and reserve sides until he suffered a knee injury, and in April 2014 it was announced by Burnley that he would not be retained at the end of the season when his contract expired.[3] However, he continued to train with the club during pre-season and in September 2014, after recovering from injury, he signed a one-year contract extension with the club.[6] In April 2015, it was announced that Conlan had signed another one-year contract extension until the summer of 2016.[7]

In July 2015 he signed for Scottish Championship side St Mirren on a season-long loan deal.[8] He made his debut for the club in the 3–1 Scottish Challenge Cup victory over Berwick Rangers.[9] Conlan received his first senior red card in the Renfrewshire derby against Greenock Morton on 21 August 2015. The match ended 0–0.[10] Conlan returned to Burnley in January 2016, having failed to break into the St Mirren first team.[11][12] In January 2016, he was sent on a one-month youth loan to Football League Two side Morecambe.[13]

International career[edit]

Conlan has been capped at under-16, under-17, under-19 and under-21 level for Northern Ireland.[3]
