Worksop welcome back hard-working midfielder!

NCEL Premier Division side Worksop Town and their manager Craig Denton have moved to bring local lad Matthew Thompson back to the Tigers.

A statement from the club says, “Matthew is an energetic, hard-working midfielder who isn’t afraid to put his body on the line.

He also has bags of stamina and would run through a brick wall for the shirt!

He played for Rainworth Miners Welfare before coming to Sandy Lane under Ryan Hindley’s tenure.

After 19 appearances and 2 goals, he left midway through the 2017/18 season and signed for Retford United.

At the start of this season, Matt joined Ollerton Town where he was a mainstay in their starting eleven.

Craig Denton had this to say on the capture;

“I am delighted to welcome back Matt Thompson to the club. I’m fully aware that he is a fan’s favourite.

“He is a player who we have kept a close eye on in recent weeks and due to the injuries and suspensions, his signature comes at a perfect time for us!

“Matt is a player who wears his heart on his sleeve and plays with passion and pride. That’s why I know he will fit in perfectly with the group”.

‘Thommo’ will go straight into the squad for today’s game against Albion Sports.

Welcome back Matt!”
