Thomas Andrew "Tom" Nichols (born 28 August 1993) is an English footballer who plays for Exeter City in Football League Two.


Born in Wellington, Somerset, Nichols progressed through the Exeter City youth ranks and has been with the club since the Under-11 age group, being signed on from local side Twyford Spartans.[2][3] He made his professional debut on 7 May 2011, in the Football League One 2–1 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough, which was the last game of the season. He came on as a half time substitute for Bertrand Cozic.[4]

Nichols scored his first professional goal in a 2–1 home win against Chesterfield, on the eve of his 18th birthday.[5]

In November 2012, he joined Conference South side Bath City on a one-month loan deal.[6]
