The 22-year old marksman, who joined the club from Blyth Spartans last summer, joins the Tyneside club with a view to gaining more senior experience.

Luke, son of former Boro striker Alun, was a regular with our Under-23s last term, scoring seven goals, three of which came against league opposition in the Checkatrade Trophy.

He follows in the footsteps of former Boro defender Robbie Tinkler, who spent much of last season on loan with the Vanarama National League club.
