He replaces Brett Agnew and Joe Lamplough, who managed to keep the club in Division One East.

 

Thompson is a former Bridlington Town player and has also played for Bottesford Town, Barton Town and Hall Road Rangers, making over 500 career appearances in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League.

 

He has been manager of Beverley Town in the Humber Premier League for the past two seasons, leading them to the championship in 2020/21 and runners-up in the season just gone. He has also helped to prepare the team for promotion into the NCEL Division One subject to confirmation from the league.

 

Thompson told https://www.bridtownafc.com: “Coming back to Bridlington Town in any capacity would be fantastic for me but coming back to this club to manage them is something that I couldn’t say no to. From applying for the position, to being offered an initial interview and then eventually being offered the opportunity to take the challenge on at this level, it was all a no-brainer for me.

 

“When I left the club in summer 2020, I always said it would take something special to pull me away and taking charge at Beverley Town fitted the bill. It was my opportunity to pave my own way in management and in the last two years we have had great success there, bringing the Humber Premier League title back to the club and setting points and goals records along the way. It’s been a fantastic two years and getting the club ready with a team that is set for the NCEL has been something that I am really proud of.

 

“In that same respect, it would take something special to pull me away from that new era in Beverley Town’s history and the only job that would do that is this one. I have prepared myself well for this opportunity and it’s a job I’m going to relish. I have continued to follow the club and have a great relationship with the fans and long may that continue. Pre-season can’t come soon enough for me and I hope everyone is looking forward to a new fresh approach this coming season”.
