Date of birth: 19/05/1992
Joined town: May 2017
Signed from: FC United of Manchester
Thomson joined Harrogate Town in May 2017 after a productive season at FC United of Manchester that yielded 20 goals; impressive for a player who describes themselves as ‘more of an attacking midfielder than an out and out striker’.
Thomson managed a total of 32 goals in 72 matches during an 18 month spell at The Red Rebels, who he had joined from full-time Chester.
The West Yorkshire based arrival had this to say on his move to The CNG Stadium: “I am very happy with my decision to sign for Town and I believe this is the right place for me to continue my development.
“Having played against Harrogate a couple of times now I fully expect us to be challenging at the top of the table this season.
“I know that all the players here want to be in the mix again, and whilst it’s a tough league, I don’t see why we can’t mount a serious title challenge.
