Tom represented Nottingham throughout his junior career before breaking into the Lions squad during the 2011/12 campaign.

Last season the young goalie made ten appearances, including his first five senior starts, claiming two shutouts along the way.

The custodian impressed in his first senior start for the Lions, helping them secure a 4-4 tie against Hull Jets in September 2013 and also produced a brilliant performance to help the Lions to a hard-fought 2-1 over-time victory in the play-off semi-final, against Coventry Blaze, in April 2014.

With the retirement of Alan Levers at the end of 2013/14, the promising netminder now has a golden opportunity to further stake his claim on a regular starting place for his hometown team.
