Tom English

Norwich Career: Youth (1997/98)
Current Club: Ipswich Wanderers (Ridgeons League)
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


The son of former Coventry striker Tommy English, Tom played for the Arsenal youth team after signing for them in the summer of 1998. He was formerly with Norwich playing in their youth team in 1997/98. Tom was released by The Gunners sometime in 1999/2000 and returned to East Anglia to sign for Jewson Leaguers Harwich & Parkeston. Despite struggling at the wrong end of the Jewson Premier League, Tom's form won him trials with QPR and Ipswich, for whom he played in an FA Premier Reserve League match.

At the end of January 2001, Tom left Harwich to play professionally in Singapore for Marine Castle United for whom he was their leading scorer. Returning to play for Harwich during the Singapore close-season, Tom endured a terrible injury whilst on holiday to Tenerife. He fell from his apartment balcony and was on life support.

Apparently recovered, Tom joined Stanway Rovers in the summer of 2003 but has since returned to Harwich & Parkeston. Scoring 15 goals in 34 appearances for Harwich in 2004/5, he was signed in mid-May for AFC Sudbury. His stay at Sudbury lasted only ten months with Tom joined Mildenhall in late March 2006. At the end of August 2006, Tom moved to ambitious Ridgeons League Division One club Haverhill Rovers and made his debut in the 6-0 win at Whitton United scoring two goals.

In October 2006, Tom was on the move again joining Tiptree United. Manager Brown said: “Many in local non-League circles will be amazed that we have gone out and signed Tom, but I can honesty say that this is simply an arrangement that suits both parties. For Tiptree United, we will benefit by having one of the best and most respected frontmen in the area on our team. He's scored some excellent goals when playing against us and these qualities should now mean that he will be part of our push for promotion. By the spring of 2007, Tom had moved on to Ipswich Wanderers.
