Curtis Liam Thompson (born 2 September 1993) is an English footballer who currently plays as a midfielder for Football League One club Notts County.


Born in Nottingham, Thompson started his career at the age of 12 when he signed for Leicester City. He played for the club for four years before he was released in 2009 after not being offered a scholarship.[4] He subsequently signed a two-year scholarship with Notts County. In summer 2011, he signed an 18-month professional contract.[5] He made his professional debut on 4 October 2011, in a 3–1 defeat to Chesterfield in the Football League Trophy, replacing Mike Edwards as a substitute.[6] On 21 October 2011, he joined Football Conference side Lincoln City, under the caretaker-manager Grant Brown, on an initial one-month youth loan,[7] debuting later that day as an 88th-minute substitute for Josh O'Keefe in the club's 2–0 Football Conference at Cambridge United.[8] This was Thompson's only appearance for the club[9] as three days later David Holdsworth was appointed manager of the Red Imps and he elected to cut-short Thompson's loan.[10]

In November 2012, he joined Ilkeston on a one-month loan deal.[11]
