He started his long career with Torquay Utd as a youngster and eventually making the first team after five years. From them he signed for Stoke City with a considerable amount of money changing hands and he went on to play over two hundred games for them and helped them gain promotion from League One to the Championship before leaving for Burnley. He has also played for Southampton before leaving to play abroad for several seasons at various clubs across the world.
He joined up with City, from Tamworth, in July 2014 for one season before leaving to coach in America but that didn't last and he re-joined City at the start of last season. He has now signed a one year contract with the Harriers and it's to be hoped that his experience will see him through with younger players around him to do the donkey work.
Thomas' arrival also sees our interest in returning Kelvin Langmead to the club now at an end but hopefully not that of Keith Lowe who is considering other offers but could still remain with us. James McQuilkin is also due to sign a new contract once back from his holiday and we have already seen Evan Garnett leave for Alfreton so now we still have to wait for any news regarding Jared Hodgkiss and Omari Patrick making their minds up.
