Stockton’s first statement signing of the summer came in the shape of former Spennymoor Town striker Thompson, who had gained promotion from the Northern Premier League East Division with Marske United last season.

Thompson has spent the last two seasons with Spennymoor, but was with the Seasiders for the final two months of the campaign, and made a successful impact as he claimed another promotion. The experienced marksman joined Darlington from Durham City back in 2012 and went on to become the joint-all-time top goalscorer with 100 goals and also the longest serving player in the club’s history.

The striker can play up front, out wide or in the number 10 role, and has shown throughout his career that he can easily adapt to whichever role he is required to play in. The signing of Thompson is a big statement of intent from the Anchors, who will be aiming to rack up the goals in the 2022/23 season and go one better than last season.
