Biography

Date of birth

Country

England

A footballer with a more unconventional background than most, Tom signed his first professional contract with Rovers in July 2017, after he had spent six years in the Army.

Despite a history in youth football with Southampton, Bournemouth and Portsmouth, Tom had only played semi-professional football before joining Rovers, whilst also working as a carpenter and a labourer prior to becoming a Lance Bombardier for the Royal Artillery aged 19.

At 6ft 3' tall, the 25-year old cuts a strong and formidable figure in the centre of defence since making his debut for the club in the 1-0 loss at Charlton Athletic on the opening day of the 17/18 season.
