Sharks coach Matt Clark is pleased with his conditioning and believes the fast bowler is set for a bumper year.

“The big left-armed quick has had a remarkable off-season transformation and will go into season 2018/19 in career-best physical condition,” Clark said. “The club will again look to Wills to spearhead our 1st Grade bowling attack, particularly in the limited over forms, for which he has a formidable record”

 

Thompson himself is also keen to contribute on the field again, and like many of the other leaders at the club, help develop the rest of the playing stocks


“It’s a cliche I know, but I just want to play my role the best I can to help us try and win every game we play, and also to try and help develop some of the aspiring young Sharks into better cricketers”
