Following confirmation of the move to the National League side, Weaver said

"A huge thank you to everyone involved with Colne Football Club for the support you've shown me during a brilliant 2 years.

I look back with pride and my head held high for what the team and I have achieved during this time. Colne have provided a brilliant platform for me, showed huge trust and confidence and enabled me to showcase my ability, whilst enjoying every second, and for this I cannot thank the club, coaches, staff and fans enough.

It has been a huge honour and pleasure to represent Colne and to play along side such a talented group of players to whom I will always be grateful to have shared the pitch with and gained friends for life. I move on with brilliant memories, especially the Cup Final win just a few weeks ago, which was the perfect way to end my time at such a fantastic and close-knit club.

I will always keep a look out for results and wish Colne the very best for the future!"

Everybody at Colne FC wishes Lucas the best in the future and hope that he can continue to grow at the rate he has this season.
