Factfile: Luke Molyneux's career so far

21 June 2022

Attacking midfielder Luke Molyneux became Rovers’ third signing of the summer on Tuesday after Rovers beat several clubs to his signature.

The 24-year-old scored 12 goals for Sky Bet League Two side Hartlepool United last season and was the subject of interest from several sides before putting pen to paper on a two-year deal at the Eco-Power Stadium.

Here we run through his career so far, up to his arrival in South Yorkshire:

Youth career: 

Molyneux came through the ranks at Sunderland, and made four appearances for their U23s side in the EFL Trophy during the 2016/17 campaign aged just 18.


He continued his development the season after, and made his first team debut in the Sky Bet Championship against Wolverhampton Wanderers in May 2018.

Having made a handful of appearances for the Black Cats at the start of the 2018/19 campaign before heading to non-league Gateshead. 

He spent the first half of the campaign with the Tynesiders before being recalled in January to join fellow fifth tier side Hartlepool.

Hartlepool United:

Following an impressive first six months at Victoria Park, Molyneux made the move permanent in the summer of 2019.

He played a key role in helping the club earn promotion back to the EFL, scoring a penalty in the National League final shootout victory over Torquay United.

His first season in the EFL proved to be his best one to date, scoring 12 goals for Pools and collecting several awards at the end of his final campaign at the club.
