CareerEdit

His career began at Hemel Hempstead Town, where he scored 72 goals in two seasons.[2] His first goal for Barnet came against Dagenham & Redbridge, and burst a hole in the side netting. He was loaned out to Cambridge City in October 2007, and was released at the end of the season.[3] Thomas then joined Stevenage Borough on 17 May 2008.[4] He struggled to make the first team and rejoined Hemel Hempstead Town after 11 appearances, scoring a brace in his first game against Yate Town.

On 27 January 2012 he joined Bromley, scoring on his debut in their 3-0 win over Weston-Super-Mare, helping Bromley win their first game since October. He subsequently played for Wingate & Finchley, and in June 2013 signed for Hendon. He went on to join Canvey Island a year later before joining Ryman League side Ware in early 2015. In August 2016, Thomas joined Uxbridge. He signed for Egham Town in March 2019.

Personal lifeEdit

In February 2009, Thomas, and his then partner, were banned from owning a dog for 10 years and given three-month sentences after neglecting and beating a puppy over a three-month period in 2007, leaving the seven-month-old puppy suffering a broken back, cracked ribs and severe bruising. Just one week earlier, Thomas was given a two-year conditional discharge at Snaresbrook Crown Court after being convicted of assault for beating up a motorist in a 2007 road rage attack.[5]
