Anthony Thomas (born 30 August 1982) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Uxbridge.

Career[edit]

His career began at Hemel Hempstead Town, where he scored 72 goals in two seasons.[2] His first goal for Barnet came against Dagenham & Redbridge, and burst a hole in the side netting. He was loaned out to Cambridge City in October 2007, and was released at the end of the season.[3] Thomas then joined Stevenage Borough on 17 May 2008.[4] He struggled to make the first team and rejoined Hemel Hempstead Town after 11 appearances, scoring a brace in his first game against Yate Town.

On 27 January 2012 he joined Bromley, scoring on his debut in their 3-0 win over Weston-Super-Mare, helping Bromley win their first game since October. He subsequently played for Wingate & Finchley, and in June 2013 signed for Hendon. He went on to join Canvey Island a year later before joining Ryman League side Ware in early 2015. In August 2016, Thomas joined Uxbridge.

Personal life[edit]

In February 2009, Thomas, and his partner, were banned from owning a dog for 10 years and given three-month sentences after neglecting and beating a puppy over a three-month period in 2007, leaving the seven-month-old puppy suffering a broken back, cracked ribs and severe bruising. Just one week earlier, Thomas was given a two-year conditional discharge at Snaresbrook Crown Court after being convicted of assault for beating up a motorist in a 2007 road rage attack.[5]
