Bio Extra

Known for his long range shooting and precise finishing, this striker won silverware with Linfield, Derry City, Shamrock Rovers, Sacramento Republic, Dundalk and Larne. He was only in the door a month at Firhill before there was a change of manager, Ian McCall being replaced by Jackie McNamara. Tommy played his part in what was very much a transitional season for Thistle, but McNamara's ins and outs at the end of season 2011-12 were decisive, and there was to be no place for Tommy in his grand masterplan, so the striker returned to Shamrock Rovers, from where he'd came. Had an interesting few years in North American soccer before finishing his career at Larne at the end of season 2018-19.

Following the loss of his mother, Louise, to a short and devastating illness, the 34-year-old Tommy turned to music in June 2021. From out of nowhere, he wrote and performed a song, “I'm A Better Man” to raise some funds for The Stephen Clements Foundation, which helps various mental health charities and initiatives. Good on ye Tommy. Check the video tab above to watch and listen.
