Although Valletta-born Jason Galea Lucas never played football, he always bore a great passion for Valletta F.C.

Jason started following Valletta F.C. more closely after Valletta won the five Cups in the 1998/99 season. He attended every training session of the team.

During the 2002 season, Jason was approached by Jean Pierre Baldacchino who was then assisting Tony Caruana, the Kit Manager, to help them with the team.

The work of an Assistant Trainer involves the preparation so that the coach and players have all the required items in place before each training session and each match.

Jason formed part of the Valletta F.C. committee in 2003-2006 season and later on was appointed Team Manager during the leadership of Coach Paul Zammit but he also continued the role as Assistant Kit Manager. In May 2010 Jason was appointed to Assistant Trainer. He also worked with the previous Team Managers of the club, namely, Mario Muscat, Nicky Saliba and Jesmond Zammit.

Jason formed part of the technical staff when Valletta F.C. won two championships (2007/08, 2010/11), the FA Trophy (2009/10), three times the Super Cup (2008, 2010, 2011), the National League 100 Anniversary Cup (2009/10) and Bet Fair Cup (2008).

He also traveled with the squad during the UEFA Champions League - FC Artmedia (Slovenia) - 2008/09; SP Tre Fiori (San Marino) u FK Ekranas (Lituania) - 2011/12; UEFA Europa League - Keflavik FC (Iceland) and St. Patrick Athletic (Ireland) 2009/10; Ruch Chorzow (Poland) 2010/11.

Jason’s remarkable moment dates back to January 16, 2008, when Valletta FC won the Bet Fair Cup game against Juventus, at the Malta’s National Stadium.
