Thompson to sign for Ely

LEWIS Thompson is to sign for Ely City for the coming season but is hoping he will return one day to play for Wisbech Town again.

The 21-year-old midfielder has been at Wisbech for the last seven seasons but admitted: “I really did not enjoy last season and just want to fall in love with football again.

“I have been to Ely training and am impressed with what their manager has had to say and I wanted to stay playing at Premier Division level.

“I also trained with a March a couple of times but just felt it was not right for me at this time although they are a club moving in the right direction.

“It was a hard decision to leave Wisbech but I want to play regular first team football and hopefully I will get that chance at Ely. I need to recharge my batteries but I want to come back to play for Wisbech again some day.”

Thompson made just 33 appearances for the first team last season but only started 18 games and could not claim a regular starting spot in front of Steven Reid and Adam Millson in the centre of midfield.
