You can't access LocalPlayer from ServerScripts. If the script is inside the StarerGui, or StarterPack, then just

local player = script.Parent.Parent

This will get the scripts 'Parent' which is the StarterGui, or in this case the PlayerGui, and it again gets the parent of that, which is the player itself.

Note that this won't work with FilteringEnabled (Scripts don't run in playergui), and FilteringEnabled IS recommended BlueTaslem 17977 — 4y
