League Two Form Guide
Question of the Week
Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?
Player Database: Chris Thompson
By: Paul Holmes
|Chris Thompson||2001-2003||9 (9)||1 goal|
Young striker signed from Liverpoolâ€™s Academy in 2001. Got his chance during Lennie Lawrenceâ€™s final few games but the word â€˜chanceâ€™ is hardly suitable. Playing in a 5-3-2 formation with little/no support was not the best introduction to professional football. Had to wait over a year for another chance but this time it was a real chance.
A vital relegation battle against Stoke saw Thompson show the form he promised in the reserves. Scoring an individual wonder goal, moments after getting clattered, and putting in an all round solid display before leaving the field with cramp. Next game he never got a touch and was dropped. Played in Townâ€™s final game last season and won the penalty for the opener. Released as part of Paul Grovesâ€™ shake-up but could well resign with strikers hardly coming out of Grovesâ€™ ears at the present.
