From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Luke Young (born 9 July 1979 in Harlow, Essex) is an English footballer, currently playing with Charlton Athletic

He started playing with Tottenham Hotspur in 1997, making over 50 appearances at right-back. He was transferred to Charlton in 2001, for a fee of £4 million. He has made over 120 appearances for Charlton, once playing alongside Mark Fish, Jorge Costa and Jon Fortune in a defence whose names spelled out the message 'young fish cost a fortune'.

In the spring of 2005 he was voted player of the year by the Charlton fans, and this was soon followed by a call-up to the English national team. His first game for England was on 28 May 2005, when he came on as substitute against the USA with 14 minutes to play. His first full appearance in an England shirt came on 3 September 2005, when he played the full 90 minutes in the World Cup qualifying game against Wales, which England won 1-0.
