Pitching In Southern League Premier Division South club Tiverton Town have taken striker Leighton Thomas on an initial month’s loan from Vanarama National League South side Hungerford Town.

The 23-year-old joined the Crusaders in June after scoring 24 goals in 31 appearances for Paulton Rovers in the Southern Division One South last season

Thomas had joined Rovers in the summer of 2021 from Tiverton’s league rivals Dorchester Town, where he had been since September 2020.

The Cayman Island under-20 international attacker joined the Magpies from Toolstation Western League Premier Division side Street.

Dorchester could have signed him earlier as they were one of a number of clubs who had a look at him on trial at the beginning of the 2017/18 season.

After missing out with the Magpies, the Cayman Islands midfielder elected to join Western League neighbours Bridport where he netted 13 goals in 50 appearances in his first season with them and then 15 goals in 22 appearances the following campaign.
