Lyndon Tompkins - Defender

Debut :

Last Game :

Lyndon is a 'hard as nails' defender, re-signed by the club in September 2004 for what is actually his third spell at Meadow Park.

An Engineer by trade, the Gloucester based centre-half came up through the City Youth team in the mid-nineties, a time when City were awash with cash and rarely looked to their own resources to recruit players. He headed off to Witney Town in search of first team football before eventually settling with Cinderford Town.

During his spell in the Forest he grew in confidence and stature and was rewarded with the club captaincy. However, Chris Burns persuaded him to come to Meadow Park and pretty much before he kicked a ball in a pre-season friendly at Brockworth the dream was over. An off the ball incident, without contact from another player, saw him tear his cruciate knee ligaments.

Despite hopes that the injury would mend itself sooner, Lyndon saw no action for a year. Almost twelve months to the day of the accident he resumed playing, again in pre-season, but found himself released without tasting first team action as City cut their wage bill.

Tompkins returned to Cinderford as they struggled to avoid the drop and faced City twice, losing both games. Now fitter and stronger from the injury he made the move across the County to Hellenic League hopefuls Bishops Cleeve where again he caught Burns' eye and rejoined City with a glowing reference from John Murphy.

With the Tigers leaking goals, it was hoped that Lyndon would plug the gap. Things didn't quite go to plan as City conceeded within minutes of his debut!

At the time of writing Tompkins has added steel to the back four and the team have conceeded just two goals in five games since his arrival. His influence at the back is also matched by his threat up front, with two headed goals against Banbury United as proof.
