Career[edit]

Sheffield United[edit]

Thompson attended King Edward VII School in Sheffield and joined Sheffield United's Centre of Excellence at the age of nine.[2][3] He progressed to being a trainee with United and turned professional in July 2000. He made his first team debut on 22 August 2000 as United beat Lincoln City 6–1 in a first round first leg League Cup tie,[4] Thompson replacing David Kelly as a 73rd-minute substitute. He started the second leg, a 1–0 away defeat for United.[5]

Unable to establish himself in the first team, Thompson joined Lincoln City on loan in October 2002,[6] making his debut in a 4–3 Football League Trophy win at home to York City on 22 October.[7] He played two further games for Lincoln, a draw at home to Bury in the league and a defeat at home to Shrewsbury Town in the Football League Trophy,[8][9] before returning to Sheffield United in November 2002. He played in the FA Cup fourth round, as United won 4–3 at home to Ipswich Town with a last minute winner from Paul Peschisolido,[10] but this would be his final appearance for Sheffield United. In March 2003 he joined Doncaster Rovers on loan until the end of the season,[11] but played just once in the Conference National for them, in a 1–1 draw at home to Morecambe.[12] He was released by Sheffield United in May 2003.[13]

Huddersfield Town[edit]

He moved to Huddersfield Town in July 2003,[14] but made only two first team appearances, starting the 2–2 draw at home to Cambridge United on the opening day of the season and coming on as a second-half substitute for Andy Holdsworth in the 3–0 win at home to Northampton Town on 13 September.[15][16]

A move to Scarborough followed in June 2004,[17] where he was an ever-present the following season.

Halifax Town[edit]

He rejected a new contract with Scarborough in June 2005,[18] joining Halifax Town on a monthly contract in August 2005.[19] In October 2005 he signed a contract until the end of that season and was called up to the England semi-professional squad.[20][21] He signed a further contract extension to the end of the following season in February 2006.[22] In November 2006 he accused Northwich Victoria captain Stuart Elliott of racial abuse and an official complaint was lodged with The Football Association.[23][24] Elliott was later cleared.[25] Thompson was a first team regular but, despite the offer of new contract at Halifax, he failed to make contact with the West Yorkshire club and became a free agent at the end of the 2006–07 season.[26]

Crawley Town[edit]

It was later reported that he was a possible target for Halifax's Conference rivals York City,[27] but joined Crawley Town on 27 June 2007.[28] He was appointed as Crawley's captain, but was linked with a move to Forest Green Rovers in January 2008, with Crawley turning down a £15,000 bid.[29]

His first Torquay goal came on 20 September as Torquay won 2–0 at home to Eastbourne Borough.[33]
