Thomas Thompson (1879–1939) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Small Heath.[1]

Thompson was born in Smethwick, Staffordshire. He was playing for Nettlefolds' works team when Small Heath signed him, attracted by his pace on the left wing.[2] His debut, on 24 January 1903 in a Second Division game away at Preston North End which Small Heath lost 2–1, was his only first-team appearance,[3] and he returned that same year to non-league football with Oldbury Town.[2]

He died in Birmingham in 1939.[2]
