We are delighted to announce George Thomson has extended his contract with the club, committing his future until the end of the 2021/22 season.
Our number seven has been with us since the Summer of 2017, helping achieve promotion to The National League in his first season at The CNG Stadium.
Thomson hit double figures for goals and assists in his first season at Town, penning a new deal at the end of a productive first campaign.
The former FC United man then helped Simon Weaver’s side achieve a record high finish in our first season at National League level and has played an integral part in ensuring we are in with a chance of promotion to the Football League at the business end of the current 2019/20 season.
Overall, our star man has had a direct contribution to over 50 goals, winning four separate goal of the month awards in the process.
With competition for places this season at an all time high, Thomson has found form at a crucial stage, scoring a brace and setting up the other in our recent clash with promotion rivals Yeovil.
“George is on fire at the minute and we are delighted to be able to sign him on a new deal, he’s been a big part of our success over the last few years.” Added Simon Weaver.
“He’s a great character and everyone rates him, you see when he scores everyone runs towards him and it is a sign of his popularity.
“We’re delighted with that as well as with all the players we have handed new contracts to recently, they are big players and will continue to be part of the collective effort, which is our main strength.”
George will be available for tomorrow’s National League clash with Eastleigh at The CNG Stadium, tickets for which remain on sale at our advance reduced rate via the below link.
Tickets will also be on sale on the gate.
