Liam Thompson (20) is a left-arm seamer playing for Glenelg District Cricket Club in the strong South Australian Cricket Association. He has played 76 matches for GDCC at the point of writing, taking 105 wickets at 16.15 across the grades. Thompson has predominantly featured in the B Grade over the few seasons, with season tally's of 13 wickets at 13.85 (2014/15) and 15 wickets at 28.33 (2015/16).

Opportunities in A Grade have evaded Thompson to date given the dearth of talent which can include the likes of former Proteas spinner Johan Botha, Australian A quick Chadd Sayers and a raft of South Australian first-class and Futures League players including Alex Carey, Jake Winter and Tom Plant. Nevertheless, given his recent exploits, Thompson remains on the verge of first grade inclusion.

An enthusiastic player, the left-arm seamer has been in the South Australian age-group mix, featuring as the first emergency player for the Under-17 Carnival in 2013/14. He was also a stand-out performer at school, playing for the Sacred Heart College 1st XI taking 55 wickets over 3 seasons.

Over the past few years, Thompson has enlisted the help of former South Australian quick Peter Gladigau, who now acts as his mentor. Gladigau has high hopes for Thompson and its envisaged he’ll break into Glenelgs top flight during the 2016/17 summer.

Thompson headed abroad, utilising his British Passport, in 2016. He played a starring role for Chipperfield Clarendon in the Hertfordshire League and is now eager to return in 2017. He is keen on a player/coach role and has been actively involved with junior coaching over the years. Thompson represents a fantastic acquisition for any club next summer.
