Portadown Football Club is delighted to announce that Gary Thompson has signed a new 1 year deal to remain at Shamrock Park.

Thompson (33) joined the club in June 2023 from Crusaders & went on to make 44 apperances for Niall Currie’s men last season as he captained the team to the Playr-Fit Championship title, the Mid-Ulster Cup & the BetMcLean Cup Final.

In securing his skipper for another year Niall Currie said

Gary is without a doubt one of best professionals I’ve worked with in my managerial career, and more importantly the most honest.

We’re over the moon this man has gave us another year, he has a huge role to play in our development next season and to have him with us is huge.

Fresh from penning his new deal Gary Thompson added

I’m delighted to have agreed a further year at the club and look forward to competing in the top league again with Portadown.

I was extremely proud to captain the club this past year. It was a special season with so many great nights to look back on for us all.

Lastly I want to thank the supporters, they have been first class with me since the minute I arrived.
