Perth, Perthshire born goalkeeper Charlie Thomson began his football career with St Johnstone YMCA in 1924 and after a trial with Arbroath he joined Scottish League Raith Rovers in 1927. He then moved to Alloa Athletic in 1928 before joining Falkirk in 1930. He had four seasons at Brockville Park before he was signed by Third Division (South) Brighton & Hove Albion in the 1934 close season, making his Football League debut against Bristol Rovers in August that year, and remaining ever present throughout the 1934-35 season.

He continued as Brighton’s principal glovesman until losing his place in February 1939, and after 183 appearances between the posts for The Seagulls he joined Exeter City in the summer of 1939. His career was then severely interrupted by the Second World War, Thomson playing in Exeter’s three League fixtures prior to the abandonment of the 1939-40 season on the outbreak of the War. He played 30 games as a wartime guest for Dundee United in the 1939-40 Eastern Regional League, featuring in their 1940 Emergency War Cup Final 1-0 defeat by Rangers in May 1940, and returned to St James’ Park after the conflict, playing for The Grecians in 4 FA Cup ties in the 1945-46 tournament before re-joining Dundee United in 1946.
