After a highly successful period in the A-League, a move overseas led to Lawrence Thomas’ long-awaited debut between the sticks in June 2021.

The 2015 and 2017 A-League Championship winner recently moved to the Danish Super League with SønderjyskE, in a pursuit for success overseas. Thomas joined the Danish side for the 2020/21 season, keeping eight clean sheets in 32 appearances in his first campaign.

This follows an immensely successfully period domestically with Melbourne Victory, in which Thomas twice secured the A-League Championship in 122 games.

Thomas won the Premiership/Championship double with Victory in 2014/15, the 2015 FFA Cup and the Championship in 2017/18, when Thomas was adjudged best on field as Victory beat Newcastle Jets 1-0 in the Grand Final.

After being a member of Australia’s squad for their friendly against South Korea in 2019, Thomas earned a recall to camp for June 2021’s FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

He was introduced as a second half substitute against Nepal, becoming Socceroo #613.
