Luke Ivan Varney (born 28 September 1982) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Portsmouth. He started his career with non-league Quorn, a club in his home county of Leicestershire, before moving to league football with Crewe Alexandra. His performances during Crewe's 2006/07 campaign, when Varney was named in the League One "Team of the Year" despite Crewe finishing only mid-table and scored against Manchester United in the League Cup saw him come to the attentions of bigger clubs and consecutive £1m-plus transfers to the Championship followed, as he joined Charlton Athletic and then Derby County. He had made over 200 league appearances, and scored his 50th career league goal, and career first top-flight goal, in the Premier League, with a 76th minute strike against Fulham on his debut for Blackpool.
