Tommy joined the Cards from Scottish Premiership side Hibernian in the summer of 2020 after a successful trial. A full-back also capable of pushing forward into midfield, his versatility proved highly valuable for manager Alan Dowson during a difficult season, in which he made 18 appearances in all competitions. His performances earned him a new contract which he signed in July 2021.
A former Woking academy player, he started his senior career with Pagham before joining hometown club Bognor Regis Town in 2017, helping the Rocks seal promotion to National League South. He became a first-team regular in a challenging 2017/18 campaign, making 38 appearances as Bognor battled unsuccessfully against relegation from the sixth tier, but the youngster was credited with being one of the south coast side’s standout performers. He made a further 25 appearances the following season, which included him scoring his first goal for the club in a 3-2 cup win over Three Bridges, before a surprise move to Scotland beckoned in January 2019. He spent the bulk of the shortened 2019/20 season on loan at Queen’s Park in the fourth tier of Scottish football, where he made 20 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice. He was also an unused substitute for one Hibs first-team game, a 4-0 win over Elgin City in the SFA Cup.
