Altrincham’s Tony Thompson feels he has been enjoying his best form since signing for Altrincham.

The former Rotherham United youngster joined the Robins at the beginning of Phil Parkinson’s tenure, with the club down and out following successive relegations.




Two promotions later, Thompson has been plying his trade with the club in the National League this season.

Speaking as part of his extended interview with this site, the 26-year-old said: “The season, I feel, has been my best at Altrincham. So far, I’ve just been able to showcase my abilities, basically.

“I think sometimes in the Evo-Stik and the Conference North, I wasn’t tested as much as I am this season. It’s showing what I can be.

“I’ve always been the same goalkeeper, but I haven’t had much to do sometimes. A lot of people talk about my kicking, and I think it’s been on point this season.

“I was looking at statistics in the Championship and keepers making errors, and it’s like one in every 20 games; it’s just comparing yourself to other keepers, at the level where they’re full-time. I’ve been in work and I’m going to play a full 90 against a team that are most probably full-time, and I put myself right up there with the keepers in this league.”
