Pen Pic:

A promising left-sided defender who developed through Cheltenham's academy and was taken on as a first year professional before finally being released in the summer of 2004. Joined City that summer, having already previously played for the club on a loan deal signed before Christmas 2003. On his day Marvin is a solid defensive player who tackles back well and has a good turn of pace that can get him out of a lot of problems. Was popular with fans for his whole hearted honest displays in a City shirt, and can consider himself a little unfortunate to have been released by manager Tim Harris shortly after he took over at Meadow Park in January 2006. His problem seemed to be a lack of fitness with ongoing hip and thigh problems as much as with Marvin's ability. Now at Cinderford, hopefully he will bounce back and make the most of his talents. 
Marvin Thompson Marvin started off in Gloucester junior football as a winger or wide player with Robinswood but was converted int oa left-back or centre-back during his time at Whaddon Road. He impressed City fans in his first few games on loan at the club in our promotion season, making some solid tackles, important interceptions and using the ball intelligently with a good first touch. Also scored the winner in a vital match at Solihull that showed he was not afraid to compete at this level but also showed he is not yet the finished article with a memorable misplaced header that gifted a goal in a defeat at Yate. Marvin's versatility was a great assett for City boss Chris Burns, but also cost him a regular settled spot and his fragile confidence particularly suffered when asked to play out of position on the right side.
