Town sign Burnley Goalkeeper Thomas

Clarets Goalkeeper Signs on One-Year Deal

21 June 2023

The club are pleased to announce the signing of Goalkeeper Lewis Thomas on a one-year deal following his release from English Premier League newcomers Burnley.

The 21-year-old will provide stiff competition within the first-team ranks ahead of the upcoming campaign.

Thomas began his youth career with his local side Leicester before moving to Manchester City in 2016. Having spent three seasons in the City academy, the stopper then made the move to Lancashire, signing for Burnley in 2019.

After featuring in matchday squads, Thomas also enjoyed a brief loan spell with AFC Flyde during the 20/21 season.

After securing his fifth signing of the summer, Town boss Simon Weaver said: “He’s a huge lad, so walking down the tunnel we’ve got another big unit in there, we think he’ll fit in really well with our goalkeeping department.

“Phil Priestley importantly gave us the nod that he respected the lad and thought he was very coachable and likeable, as well as having all the ingredients to do really well with his career.”

We’d like to welcome Thomas to the club, the goalkeeper takes up the number 13 jersey.
