...Thompson reversed a decision to retire.
The inspirational central defender, who has spent ten seasons with the Greens, and skippered them to the Division One title last season, played in the disappointing 4-0 home defeat by Felixstowe & Walton United but missed Monday’s derby at the Wellesley after bowing out.

Midfielder Jamie Godbold has returned to Ryman League Premier Division neighbours Lowestoft Town following his three-month loan spell with Gorleston.
In fifteen appearances he scored four goals.
