Career[edit]

Tommy, who is the cousin of Wayne,[1] John and Graeme Rooney, began his career at Tranmere Rovers, where he played in the youth and reserve sides but did not break into the first-team.[1] He joined League Two club Macclesfield Town in May 2004 on a one-year contract[1] and made two league and cup appearances for the club in the 2004–05 season.[2] He was one of several players released by Macclesfield in May 2005 following their defeat in the League Two play-offs[3] and joined Welsh Premier League champions Total Network Solutions on non-contract terms in July 2007.[4] After training with TNS during the summer, he dropped into non-league football, joining Conference North club Vauxhall Motors at the beginning of the 2005–06 season[5] and later joining Leigh RMI[6] and Cammell Laird.[7] He rejoined Vauxhall Motors in July 2008.[8]
