McGill on loan deal

U23 Keeper

Basingstoke Town FC are delighted to announce the signing of young and exciting goalkeeper Thomas McGill from Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion FC.

‘Tom’ progressed through the Brighton youth ranks to make up part of Simon Rusk’s under-23 squad this season.


The talented goalkeeper made over 30 appearances for Albion’s under-18s in the Premier League South, and also has been on loan most recently at Greenwich Borough.

Tom, who has represented England at Under-16’s and Under-17’s level and signed his first pro contract with Brighton this year, joins us for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.

“I’m really pleased and delighted to welcome Tom to Basingstoke Town,’ said the Boss, Martin Kuhl, ‘I spoke with Brighton Goalkeeper Coach Shannon, who I worked with whilst I was at Reading, regarding Tom and I liked what I heard about him. I’m looking forward to working with him and hope he enjoys his experience playing here.”
