A highly skillful and respected performer in the City side, given the captain's armband in summer 2006 and recently passing the milestone of 200 appearances in the club colours. Thommo is always a player able to find a little more time on the ball, and is equally adept as a passing playmaker or as a difficult defensive tackling opponent. Despite his long service at Meadow Park he has yet to find a truely settled position in the side, having been used variously in the centre of midfield, right midfield, centre-back and most recently at right-back. An influential player in the match from any position, but perhaps missed from the centre of the park where he was able to more frequently find the net.

Thommo slips past the Bath attack Thompson had been a target of then City boss Chris Burns for some time before signed in March 2002 on Southern League transfer deadline day from Northampton Town. He immediately impressed with assured performances in the games left available to him that campaign and City fans were delighted when he agreed to stay for the following season, and since then he's become a popular fixture in the side. Spent most of his first two seasons with City in the centre or right of midfield where he put in his most accomplished performances and could dominate games, as well as make the most of a happy knack of putting the ball in the net regularly, reaching double figures from midfield. Thompson has gone on to put in some impressive displays in defence, but many fans hope he will get a chance to return to midfield, fearing his creative talents are a little wasted further back. 

Thompson began his career with City and originally left Gloucester for a 3 year scholarship with Division 2 side Northampton Town on the recommendation of Burns, then in charge of the City youth team. Thompson did enough at the Cobblers to earn a professional contract and played regularly for their reserve side without ever quite making the breakthrough to regular first team football. In fact he holds their record for the briefest Northampton career, his first team action lasting two minutes against Middlesborough in the League Cup. Thompson chose to return home on his release rather than make an immediate attempt to stay in the professional game, and despite interesting scouts from a number of other non-league clubs Thommo has consistently chosen to stay with the club.
