Thomson Agrees Deal

26 July 2013

Goalkeeper Robbie Thomson has agreed to join Rochdale on a one-year-deal, subject to approval from the Football League, FA and international clearance.

The 20-year-old was offered a contract after impressing during a three week trial with the club. 

Thomson, a former Celtic youth player, has featured in four pre-season friendly matches for Dale - the wins over Northwich Victoria, FC Halifax Town, Stalybridge Celtic and the draw against Blackburn Rovers.

Manager Keith Hill commented: “Having witnessed in training what his capabilities are, Robbie is in sync with what I expect from a goalkeeper. We'll continue to progress him, develop him and give him an opportunity.

“For me, it’s great that we’ve brought him in as a rival to Josh Lillis as I believe with the recruitment of Robbie that we’ve got two very capable goalkeepers.”

Welcome to Spotland, Robbie!
