Thompson Joins The Lions

We have made our final offer to North Ferriby United for striker Reece Thompson who has agreed to join The Lions for the upcoming National League season.

The clubs will now either agree compensation or it will be decided by an FA Tribunal.

Thompson, 23, was born in Worksop and started his career with Retford United’s youth system before he served his apprenticeship with Lincoln City.

He made one first team appearance for The Imps as a substitute in 2012 and was then released and joined United.

Thompson broke the record for goals scored in the Under-19 league, with 32 goals from 18 appearances. He scored 14 goals in 20 games with Retford’s first team from Christmas to the end of the 2012-13 season and scored 39 goals in the 2013-14 season.

He joined Frickley Athletic in October 2014 and signed a contract with the club a month later. He finished the 2014-15 season with 15 goals from 32 matches and was rewarded with a new-two year contract by Frickley.

After a successful trial Thompson signed for League Two York City in August 2015 for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract. He made 14 league appearances scoring three goals for York.

In September 2016 Thompson left York by mutual consent before joining their National League rivals and newly-promoted North Ferriby United.

Last season he made 38 appearances for Ferriby scoring 12 goals.
