Dom Thompson receives Premier League Debut Ball

Latest top flight debut recognised for home-grown Bee

25 May 2022

Dom Thompson is the latest home-grown Brentford player, and tenth in total, to receive their personalised Premier League debut ball.

The 21-year-old made his first Premier League outing on Boxing Day against Brighton and Hove Albion before putting in a Man-Of-The-Match performance three days later against Manchester City at the Brentford Community Stadium.

They were two of Dom's five Bees appearances this season, the other three of which came in the EFL and FA Cup. The former Arsenal man spent the second half of the season on loan at Sky Bet League One side Ipswich Town, making 17 appearances for the Suffolk side. 

After returning from East Anglia, Dom was able to pick up his momento from his first season in the top flight earlier this month.

Dom takes our home-grown debutants pictured with their match ball this season into double figures, following David Raya, Rico Henry, Ethan Pinnock, Marcus Forss, Shandon Baptiste, Mads Bech, Charlie Goode and the B Team duo of Fin Stevens and Nathan Young-Coombes. 

A Debut Ball, housed in a personalised, engraved case, is given to all homegrown debutants who have been developed at an Academy of a club in the English football pyramid for three years or more prior to their 21st birthday.
