Forward Backs Himself

BACK at Ladysmead; back with Leigh Robinson; and backing himself to make an impact -

Tivvy’s first signing of the summer has come to the Ian Moorcroft Stadium with just a touch of swagger.

 

Leighton Thomas first wore the Yellow two years ago during a loan spell from Hungerford Town, prior to which he had been part of a Dorchester side coached by current Tivvy manager Leigh Robinson. His knowledge of the club and its gaffer was an influence in signing up for seconds.

 

“It's a lovely club,” said the Cayman Islands youth international forward. “I played for Leigh about four seasons back at Dorchester. I thought he was an ambitious and good guy. He knows me as a player and my plan is to go into a team where I know I can be the best I can be, get back to scoring goals and make an impact.”

 

Leighton came to the attention of Hungerford – and pretty well everyone else in non-league circles – when he won the Pitching In Southern League Division One West Golden Boot by scoring 31 goals in not much shy of a goal a game for Paulton Rovers.

 

He said: “I’m strong, physical and dynamic – scoring all types of goals – and I’m spontaneous. I like to come to feet or run alone or behind.

 

“When I score a good goal, I always celebrate with a back flip. Another strength is jumping high and winning headers, even though I’m only 5ft 9 or 10ins.

 

“My ambitions are to score as many goals as possible and to get the team into the play offs.

 

“I know that I will know some of the guys in the dressing room, but I’m happy to build that strong relationship with the new players, also.

 

“I can’t wait to get started.”
