Career[edit]

Thompson was born in Chester, Cheshire.[1] He began his career with Swindon Town, moving from the youth set-up to become a professional in April 2009.[2] Even before he signed the two-year deal he had reportedly received interest from Premier League sides Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton and Newcastle United.[3] He made his debut on 5 October 2010, as he replaced Scott Cuthbert in a Football League Trophy win over Torquay United. He made his league debut on 2 November 2010, when he played the full ninety minutes of a 3–0 home defeat to Charlton Athletic.[4]

On 20 April 2013, Thompson was awarded the 2012/2013 Swindon Advertiser 'Player of the Year' after winning by more than 60 per cent of the fans' votes[5] and Thompson won again in 2013/2014.[6]
