Lucas was born just over 30 years ago in Toowoomba, Queensland, and was living in the United Kingdom. He was the driving force behind the development of referees throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. Lucas was a great contributor to the sport in Scotland and Europe and had been named as an associate member of the FIT referee panel for the period post the 2011 World Cup up to and including the 2015 World Cup. Last July, Lucas was named the Male Referee of the Tournament at the 2010 European Championships. Lucas was a person that always strived for his personal best at all times, and at the same time, ensured that he worked for his mates to bring them with him. On behalf of the whole Touch Football community, Touch Football Australia offers Lucas’s family and friends our deepest condolences.
