Club career[edit]

He began his career with Peterborough United, and scored his first competitive goal in his career on 25 November 2006, against Torquay United, a match which Peterborough won 5–2.[2] He moved to Dagenham & Redbridge in May 2007.

Huke was regularly strongly linked with several A-League clubs in Australia. On 23 January 2009, Huke was released by Dagenham & Redbridge for personal reasons. Dagenham manager, John Still said he was very sad and disappointed to be losing Huke.[3]

On 17 May 2011, Huke left Rushden & Diamonds to join Conference South side Dover Athletic on a one-year deal. In May 2012 he signed a new contract with the Kent club.

Huke signed for newly relegated Conference South club Ebbsfleet United in June 2013.[5] He eventually left the club in January 2015, to join Maidstone United

In the summer of 2015, Huke was forced to retire because of a knee injury. He now works as a matchday ambassador for Ebbsfleet United.
