Luke James Foster (born 8 September 1985) is an English footballer who plays for League Two side Rotherham United as a defender.

Foster started his career as a trainee with Sheffield Wednesday, signing a professional contract with the club at the age of 18. He joined Scarborough on work experience in September 2004, and was also loaned out to Conference North side Alfreton Town in February 2005 until the end of the 2004 05 season. On returning to his parent club, Foster was released, and joined Lincoln City in June 2005. After failing to cement a first-team place at Lincoln, he was loaned out to York City the following season on a two-month loan, making a handful of appearances for the club.

In January 2007, Foster was released by Lincoln, and he joined Stalybridge Celtic on a short-term contract, making six appearances for the club. He left Stalybridge a month later, in order to join Oxford United on an initial six-month deal. Foster went on to play over 100 times for Oxford in just under three years at the club, winning two end of season awards in the process. However, he joined Mansfield Town in January 2010 for an undisclosed fee after he was told that his contract would not be extended at Oxford. He was made club captain at Mansfield and played regularly until the end of the 2009 10 season. Despite this, he left the club at the end of the season and joined Stevenage on a two-year contract in May 2010, helping the club earn promotion to League One in their first ever season in the Football League. After just one season at Stevenage, Foster joined Rotherham United in June 2011.
