After a successful two-year spell at Lincoln City, winger Tom Pett came back to Boro’ in November 2020 on a short-term deal. Well, we say short-term. At first, he signed up for the rest of the 2020-1 season. And who could say that we wouldn’t benefit from what he can bring to a side; an attacking edge and – based on his time with the Imps – knowing what it takes to get promoted.
After a bright start to his career at the Lamex, Pett became a regular fixture in the Boro’ side; chipping in with a number of goals now and then. Changes in manager, however, meant different views on his best position was. And it was no surprise that his form was sometimes inconsistent as a result of that uncertainty.
At Sincil Bank, he kicked on after leaving us first time round; part of a side that won the 2018-9 League Two title. And it’s his attacking mind that resonated with boss Alex Revell on signing him. “Tom is a player that everybody at the football club knows about,” he told the offy site. “He has a great footballing brain and he’ll add a huge amount to us in our attacking play. We are delighted to bring him back to the club where he enjoyed the best football of his career.”
Tom Pett: Before Boro’
By signing Pett in summer 2014,we bagged one of the latest talents to make himself at Wealdstone. The move up ensured he got his chance to progress his career at a higher level. And hopes for the winger’s future were certainly high when he arrived at the Lamex Stadium. Before his time at Wealdstone, Pett captained hometown side Potters Bar Town.
