Exeter City signed Thomson in July 2010 from Southampton. Of Trinidadian descent, he is one of the rare players to have represented two different countries at international level.

Thomson spent one month on loan to A.F.C. Bournemouth between January and February 2009. Although the clubs had agreed to extend the loan, this was not permitted because of Bournemouth's financial circumstances.
