Lawrence Thomas comes home

Western Sydney Wanderers FC are proud to confirm the signing of goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas for the next three Isuzu UTE A-League seasons.

A proud Western Sydney local, Thomas is originally from Toongabbie and played his junior football at Marconi Stallions, Blacktown City Demons and the Australian Institute of Sport before kicking off his senior career at Bankstown City.

In 2011, Thomas broke into the A-Leagues with Melbourne Victory where he played for nine seasons, being crowned Champions twice as well as winning the Australia Cup.

Thomas returns to the A-Leagues after two years overseas in the Danish SuperLiga with SønderjykE where he made 56 appearances over two seasons. 

The shotstopper featured in every match of his first season at the club finishing runners up of the DBU Pokalen that year.

Head coach Mark Rudan welcomed Lawrence to the Red & Black.

“Lawrence is a very experienced goalkeeper and comes back to the domestic league after honing his craft overseas for the last two years,” said Rudan.

“Having started his football career in Western Sydney, it is a very exciting moment for him to come back to where it all started.

“We know Lawrence’s never say die attitude and his winning mentality is something that we are trying to build upon.”

Lawrence Thomas says the return to his hometown club fills him with great pride.

“Being a Toongabbie boy, the area has a very special place in my heart,” said Thomas. 

“To be returning home to play fills me with great excitement and pride.

“For me, Western Sydney has an abundance of talented footballers and I believe the club has the responsibility to excite, motivate and inspire.

“The only way to do that is to give the area the best team in the country to watch every week.”
