Scunthorpe United completed the signing of full-back Lewis Thompson in July 2021 following his departure from Championship side Blackburn Rovers.
The 21-year-old penned a one-year deal to become our latest summer addition.
Thompson joined Rovers from Manchester United’s academy in the summer of 2016. He quickly settled into life at Ewood Park, impressing for their Under-18s in his first season. These showings resulted in him ending the campaign with Rovers’ development squad, where he played a handful of matches.
Further progression in the second year of the defender’s scholarship was rewarded with a first professional deal in March 2018. His first season as a professional saw him experience senior football for the first time during a three-month loan spell at FC United of Manchester.
After returning to Blackburn the full-back, who’s been capped by both England and Northern Ireland at youth level, excelled for the club’s Under-23s over the last two seasons, during which there was also a loan stint at Fylde which was cut short by that season being curtailed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
