Thomas joined Wimbledon when they reconstituted and moved to Plough Lane at the start of the 1912/13 season, and despite still being in his teens he was the regular centre-forward for much of the next three seasons.
When the Great War intervened he joined the Army and played regularly there, where he converted to right-half.
After the War he joined Tooting Town and was captain of their successful Southern Suburban League winning side of 1920/21.
He returned to the Dons to play against Amateur Cup finalists, South Bank, over Easter 1922, and was noted for his performance before injuring a knee during the first half in what proved to be his last appearance for the club.
