During a five year stint with Wigan, where he made just four First Team appearances, also played on loan at Barnet, Carlisle and Bury.

Garry Thompson - A Morecambe legend having made more than 300 appearances and scoring 50 plus goals for The Shrimps between 1999 and 2008 and scoring one of the goals that took them into the Football League via the 2007 Conference Play-Off Final against Exeter City at Wembley Stadium. Moved to Scunthorpe United in May 2008 where he spent four seasons before a move to Bradford City in July 2012. Thompson volleyed Bradford ahead against Arsenal in a League Cup Quarter-Final in December 2012, with Bantams eventually winning on penalties and going on to beat Aston Villa to reach the Final at Wembley where although losing to Swansea, became the first bottom tier Club to reach the League Cup Final since 1962. A year later Thompson was back at Wembley again, this time in the League Two Play-Off Final where a 3-0 victory over Northampton Town secured promotion. In July 2014, Thompson joined Notts County, scoring 11 League goals in 37 appearances before his move to Adams Park in the summer of 2015.
