    Decent move, get him some time in the conference and experience.

    Always good to have the youth getting experience in men's football.

    What position in defence does he play normally?

    He doesn't turn 19 until April. Very good defender IMO. Few will have seen him in pre-season, this loan will help him a lot as he's away from home for a while and mixing it against the type of strikers you'll find in League 2

    Couldn't agree more with you @SlowerThanPlatt, Thompson is a very good defender and also very comfortable with the ball at his feet, a similar defender to Jordan Willis in terms of his athleticism.

    With experience Thompson and Ford will be very good centre backs for this Club, both part of the very succesful U18's side last season which IMO is one of the best U18's sides the academy has produced.

    Must be highly thought of to get a loan to a decent conference team. Pleased with this

    Hopefully he doesn't turn out to be a third wheel.

    He's played every game for them so far including games against Hartlepool and Leyton Orient

    Centre half is arguably the hardest position break into the first team as well as a young player. All positive signs, only 18 and playing regularly in the league below
