Thomas Gill

Thomas Gill
Norwich Career: Trial (March 1995)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 16/05/1965 
Nationality: Norwegian


Former Canary triallist Thomas Gill made his home debut for Norway on 30th May 1997 vs. Brazil at Ullevaal Stadium. Coach Egil "Drillo" Olsen promised that he will replace Frode Grodaas (Chelsea) in the 2nd half. Thomas Gill, who plays for the German Bundesliga side MSV Duisburg, played one reserve team match for Norwich vs. Charlton in March 1995 while on trial from a Danish Premier League side. Instead of joining Norwich, Gill played for Sturm Graz of Austria before moving to Duisburg where he gained international recognition for Norway. He has played matches for Norway during the Australia tournament earlier this year. Prior to joining Sturm Graz, Thomas played for Scandinavian sides Brann, Valeraanga, FK Jerv and AaB.

Yahoo's Teamtalk Service reported on March 25th 1998 that Sunderland manager Peter Reid was hoping to sign Gill after Gill had played for Norway in an international friendly against Belgium. The highly rated keeper had also been approached by Celtic but desired to play in England. Thomas was rated at £200,000. This move never materialised.

Thomas has since moved to Denmark to join FC Copenhagen. The Unofficial Football Transfer website stated that Thomas had signed for Scottish side Ayr United in early August 1999. He quit in November 1999 citing differences with the manager. The Football Transfers site then reported in February 2000 that Thomas was linked with a move home to Norway to join Byrne. The same site updated me in August 2001 reporting that Thomas had joined IK Start (Norwegian First Division) from Fredrikstad FK (Norwegian Second Division) on loan until December 2001.

He then played for Vålerenga again, Jerv again and Strømsgodset IF.

Thomas is now retired
