Josh Thomas player profile
The Valiants added pacy striker Josh Thomas on loan from Swansea City in the summer of 2023.
On signing the player manager Andy Crosby commented: “Josh is an exciting player who possess exceptional pace and movement. He also has an excellent goal scoring record to date in his career with Swansea’s academy system.”
Thomas scored on his full debut – a League Cup win over Fleetwood at Vale Park. He proved to be something of a cup expert adding a further two goals in League Cup and Football League Trophy fixtures.
However, Thomas was injured on Wales U21 International duty and with his gametime limited, he was recalled by his parent club in January 2024. Speaking after the player was recalled, Port Vale’s Director of Football, Dave Flitcroft, said: “Firstly, on behalf of the club, I would like to thank Josh for his efforts whilst with the club. Josh is a very talented player with incredible determination on the pitch and he was a brilliant character off it.
“Unfortunately for both us and Josh, his time with the club was a stop-start due to the multiple international breaks and injuries, culminating with the injury he suffered whilst playing for Wales U21s back in November.”
