Andrew Thomas
Thomas - an uncompromising defender who always gave 100%.

WHEN Andrew Thomas turned out for Caersws against Carmarthen Town on 10 November 2007 he achieved a Welsh Premier record by becoming the first player to make 400 appearances for the same club.
A "Ronseal" player who always does exactly what it says on the tin, Thomas is a no-nonsense defender with an uncompromising attitude to the game who always gives 100% and also demands it from those around him.
Thomas also epitomises the loyalty of players to the village club, where he progressed through the junior and youth set-up to become club captain and had spent the whole of his career until a summer 2008 move to neighbours Newtown.
He has played in the same backline as all-time record holder Colin Reynolds and several other players with many appearances for the club - including Hugh Clarke, Anthony Griffiths, Sean Jehu, Graham Evans, Andy Davies and Andy Mulliner - under the league's second longest-serving manager, Mickey Evans.
Highlights of Thomas's career include two European appearances in the Uefa InterToto Cup in 2002/3 against Bulgarian outfit Marek Dupnitsa and three League Cup winners medals in 2001, 2002 and 2007.
And he achieved the 400-landmark at the relatively young age of 32, which should ensure he goes on to clock up many more appearances.
