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

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 finishing 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.

In September 2016 Thompson left York by mutual consent before joining their National League rivals and newly-promoted North Ferriby United making 38 appearances and scoring 12 times.
