Thomas Aston (born 1876; date of death unknown) was a footballer who played four games in the Football League for Port Vale at the start of the 1900–01 season.

Playing career[edit]

Aston played for Ironbridge before joining Port Vale in May 1900.[1] He made his debut on 1 September, in a 2–2 draw with Small Heath at Athletic Ground.[1] He scored his first goal in the Football League 14 days later in a 2–0 win over Lincoln City.[1] He played a total of four Second Division games, but within a few weeks he realized that his work commitments made getting to matches difficult and so he left the club before the month was out.[1]
