Former Loanee Thompson Joins Blackpool
Monday, 25th Jul 2022 18:39
Former Blues loanee Dominic Thompson has joined Championship Blackpool from Brentford on a permanent basis, signing a three-year deal with the Seasiders having an option for a further year.
The 21-year-old left-back spent the second half of last season with the Blues making 15 starts and two sub appearances.
“It’s nice to finally get this deal done with a week to go before the new season starts,” Thompson told the Tangerines’ official website.
“I’ve had experience through the leagues in my career so far, and I believe I can add a lot to this team and help build on the success from last season. I’m athletic and like to contribute to the attack as well as the defence. I’ll always give 100% to the team.
“I’m really looking forward to the future and playing Championship football on a regular basis here at Blackpool.”
Blackpool head coach Michael Appleton added: “Dominic brings a really good pedigree to the club, and is someone I was aware of following his loan spells at Swindon and Ipswich.
“He brings a real athleticism and energy and will offer a lot across the pitch in attack and defence. He knows how to defend one v one and at the back post, which is everything you want in a full-back.
“We’re delighted that we’ve been able to bring him in permanently too, which will only be a good thing for the football club.”

So another season of high hopes and expectations has begun. We always say ‘something’ feels different as we go into a new season.
McKenna's Marvellous Hybrid Formation by DanLyles
“I don’t speak to players a lot about 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 and think it’s about them understanding their roles and responsibilities on the pitch, as well as the spaces we want to attack and where to defend.”
The Cashless Debate by ThatMuhrenCross
Ipswich Town Football Club's decision to move towards a "cashless" Portman Road next season has proved to be a more controversial topic than first expected, not only on the TWTD Forum and comments section, but also across social media and in conversations between fans.
