Chris Thompson - Midfield / Defence

Debut :

Last Game :

Chris was one of the more successful products of Burnsy's youth team as he progressed from City to a youth contract at Northampton Town. Sadly for him, he wasn't taken on at Sixfields and came back to Meadow Park during March 2002.

At the time, only Luke Prince seemed to have the natural talent to stand out from the rest so having Chris in the side was like a breath of fresh air. On his debut at home to Cirencester he showed the kind of touches that had been missing from City's play and within the last few months of the season became an essential player in the City midfield.

Thommo started the season out of position at right wing back and didn't find his best form until he was moved into midfield. His first goal came away at Minehead in the FA Cup and was followed by a purple patch where he couldn't miss. He ended the season with ten goals. !
