Biographical Text

A former trainee with Southampton, he signed his first full contract for the Saints in June 1992, but had to wait to make his Football League debut until moving to Leyton Orient the following March. He scored twice in five matches.

His stay at Orient lasted just four months, whereupon he signed for Fulham and was much more successful scoring 8 goals in 90 league appearances.

Moving to Swansea City in July 1998, Thomas added a further 91 league matches and 8 goals. His next club was Brighton and Hove Albion, whom he signed for in March 2001, but he only stayed there until the end of the season, featuring in 8 matches.

Thomas spent the 2001-02 season at Oxford United appearing in 14 league matches and scoring two goals.

He then arrived at Exeter City in August 2002, a season that ultimately ended in relegation from the Football League. His debut, as a substitute, was against Shrewsbury Town on the opening day of the season at Gay Meadow.

After leaving St James’ Park at the end of 2002-03, turning down a reported two-year contract, Thomas signed for Eastleigh.

He left there and joined AFC Totton in June 2007, where he also helped out with coaching.
