Luke Newton – Founder (@LukeNewtonSport)
Luke Newton is a passionate Chelsea fan since 1998. His love for the game steered back to when he was a kid, going to Stamford Bridge Champions League nights with his Nan. Luke is also an active Sunday League footballer, who plays as a centre back. With his Surrey Cup final experience at Under 16 level, he thought he was going to be the next John Terry – he was obviously wrong. Luke has a passion for Football Journalism and therefore founded Absolute Chelsea for his own portfolio of work. As Absolute Chelsea grew a lot in the first year, Luke decided to ask for volunteers to write for the website. Absolute Chelsea is now a well established independent football news website.
