Career[edit]

Born in Kendal, Cumbria, Thompson scored Morecambe's first goal in the Conference play-off Final against Exeter City in May 2007.

In January 2008, Morecambe turned down a £10,000 offer from Bradford City for Thompson.[2] Instead he agreed to sign for Scunthorpe United on a three-year contract on 27 May 2008 on a free transfer, joining on 1 July.[3]

He was released by the club in May 2012.[4] Thompson signed a one-year contract with Bradford City on 4 July 2012.[5] He made his debut on 11 August in the League Cup during a 1–0 win against Notts County.[6] He then made his league debut a week later against Gillingham.[7] He made his home debut on 21 August in a 1–0 win against Fleetwood Town, coming on as a substitute for Zavon Hines.[8] On 28 August, he scored his first goal for the club, scoring an injury-time winner in a 2–1 win in the League Cup against Watford.[9] On 11 December, he helped Bradford to the semi-finals of the League Cup by scoring against Arsenal.[10] He scored his first league goal for the club on 26 December in a 2–1 win at home to Accrington Stanley.[11] On 2 May 2013, he scored in the first leg of the play-off semi-final against Burton Albion.[12] In the final, he assisted goals from both Nahki Wells and James Hanson as Bradford beat Northampton Town 3–0 and secured promotion to League One.[13]

On 23 July 2014, Garry Thompson signed for Notts County. After one season with County, he joined Wycombe Wanderers on a two-year deal.[14] He scored in the 83rd minute of Wycombe's FA Cup fourth round match against Tottenham Hotspur on 28 January 2017 after heading in Myles Weston's cross to give Wycombe a 3–2 lead, although Wycombe went on to lose the match 4–3.[15] At the end of the 2016–17 season, Thompson left Wycombe Wanderers after his contract was not renewed.[16]

Thompson re-signed for Morecambe on 28 June 2017, after 9 years away from the club. He had remained in close contact with his former teammate Jim Bentley, who is the current manager of Morecambe.[17] Thompson made his second competitive debut in the opening game of the new season, a 2–1 win over Cheltenham Town. Thompson scored both goals to complete the comeback, including a last minute winner.[18]

In January 2019, he was released by Morecambe and joined Northern Premier League club Workington.[19]
