Description

Hurlford, Ayrshire born Jock Thom began his football career as a 17 year old with Hurlford Thistle in 1916 and, after unsuccessful trials with Birmingham City, signed for Nottingham Forest in August 1922. He failed to get into the first team at Forest and was released in the summer of 1923, joining North Eastern League club Workington, where he scored 30 goals in his first season. Leeds United signed him for £430 in May 1924 with his Football League debut coming in a 1-0 defeat at Notts County the same September. However he was given little chance to show what he could do at Elland Road scoring 3 goals in 7 appearances in his debut season but remaining in the reserves until he was transferred to Third Division (South) Bristol Rovers for £175 in June 1927, where he scored 4 times in 6 appearances during 1927-28.

In August 1928 he returned to Workington, after which he joined still non league Aldershot Town in June 1930 and scored nearly one hundred goals for them, including 6 goals in 19 games after they had replaced Thames Association in the Third Division (South) in the 1932-33 season. In the 1930-31 season he had scored a staggering sixty-eight goals for them. He then joined non league Guildford City in the 1933 close season. Having retired from playing he later returned to Aldershot as reserve team trainer and was also a gateman at the Recreation Ground.
