Coming through the youth system at Prenton Park, forward Bailey Thompson was a second-year scholar with the Super Whites for the 2018-19 season.
Whilst he did not feature in Micky Mellon’s squad during their EFL return, he spent time on loan at local non-League club Cammell Laird 1907, with whom he made numerous appearances.
He managed to score several goals, including 2 goals in a 0-4 victory over Eccleshall and the only goal in a 1-4 defeat to Vauxhall Motors.
Returning from Kirklands in the summer of 2019, Thompson was one of four youth scholars offered professional terms, which he duly signed in June 2019.
He will therefore be a part of the senior squad for the 2019-20 League One season.
A player for the future, Bailey will have to compete with several senior players for game time and as such, 2019-20 is likely to be a season of development for the young forward.
Interesting Fact: Bailey signed his professional terms on the same day as teammates Bayleigh Passant, Carl Spellman and Danny Walker-Rice, 28th June 2019.
