Sorba Thomas can take inspiration from Huddersfield Town teammate Josh Koroma in stepping up from non-league.
That was the view shared by the Championship club’s head of football operations Leigh Bromby after Thomas completed his transfer from National League Boreham Wood yesterday.
Koroma made his breakthrough into the Leyton Orient team when the club were in League Two, but it was in their National League stint that he firmly established himself, earning a move to Huddersfield in 2019.
Speaking to the club’s website, Bromby said of new signing Thomas: “Sorba has a lot of potential and many qualities that will fit the way we play, and this is a really positive acquisition for the club moving forward.
“The step from the National League to the Championship is a big one and we will take every necessary step to help him be successful. We will assess what is best for Sorba once he’s trained with us.
“He only needs to look at Josh Koroma as an example of the path he can take. Josh came from the same level, took time to adjust and improve, and then made a massive impact on the Championship this season.”
