Career[edit]

Lathrope began his youth career at Cambridge United, though moved on to Norwich City's academy in 2006, signing his first two and a half year professional contract with the club in January 2008.[1] In November 2009 he joined Conference South club Bishop's Stortford on a two month loan.[1][2] In May 2010 he was released by the Canaries,[3] and signed with Torquay United in July 2010.[1]

He made his debut for the club on 11 August 2010, coming on as a 112th minute substitute for Danny Stevens in their League Cup First Round defeat to Reading at Plainmoor.[4] Having failed to establish himself in the 2010–11 season, Lathrope claimed his place in the side under the new regime of Martin Ling, following a formation change to 4-5-1 which saw Lathrope employed in a holding role in front of the back four.

He joined Hereford United on a one-month loan on 12 November 2013 making his debut the same day in a 2-2 draw with Chester.[5]

After turning down a new contract with Torquay Lathorpe signed for Conference Premier team Aldershot Town on 1 July 2014.[6]
