Tom joined the Cards ahead of the 2021/22 season following his release from fellow National League side Boreham Wood. The vastly experienced defender, who can also play in a defensive midfield role, spent four years with the Wood, making more than 150 appearances in all competitions, during which time the club twice finished in the play-off places. It would include a fourth place finish in 2018, when the Wood reached the play-off final, losing 2-1 to Tranmere Rovers at Wembley. After making more than 500 career appearances he now joins the Cards looking to enjoy another exciting season.
He has twice been a part of National League promotion-winning sides. In 2013/14 he was a near ever-present in the Cambridge United side promoted to League Two via the play-offs after a second-place finish, playing the full 90 minutes against Gateshead in the final, and making a further 38 league appearances in the Football League the following season. He was also on loan at Lincoln City for a part of their title winning campaign in 2016/17. He spent two further seasons in the Football League, making more than 50 appearances for Barnet between 2015 and 2017, helping secure back-to-back 15th place finishes for the Bees. In his earlier career he was a regular for Dartford during the height of their rivalry against Woking, with the Darts finishing second to the Cards in the 2011/12 National League South season, before winning promotion via the play-offs. He also helped the Kent-side secure an eighth place finish in their first season in the top tier of non-league football before joining Cambridge.
