Lukas is one of the few players aged over 30 in this young squad, but he brings with him some priceless experience of top-class football. Having grown up watching local rivals Austria Salzburg with his grandfather, Schubert ended up playing for another of our league rivals, SV Grödig. In 128 appearances there, he played six times in the Austrian Bundesliga, amassing a further 96 games in the second division, and finding the net 17 times. He became a fans’ favorite over in Ireland at top-flight side Derry City, where he even played in UEFA Europa League qualifiers, before moving to US outfit Napa Valley 1839. He’s come back to his native Salzburg region for the 2020-2021 season to join our promotion push!
“I like being back in Austria and having friends and family around me again. Playing in the Europa League qualifiers was special, and so was getting promoted to the Bundesliga with SV Grödig, but I’ve got the chance to contribute to something unique here at FC Pinzgau Saalfelden.”
