Whitehawk FC have re-signed experienced midfielder Tommy Fraser from Ryman Premier League side Burgess Hill Town.
Tommy, who will now begin his third spell with The Hawks, started his career with Brighton and Hove Albion and made 78 appearances for The Seagulls, before moving onto Port Vale, where he joined up with his former manager Micky Adams. Whilst with The Valiants, Fraser was made club captain at just 21 years of age. Tommy made 50 appearances for Port Vale, before leaving for a spell with Barnet.
In 2011, Tommy signed for The Hawks, joining up with his younger brother, James. In his first season, The Hawks won the Ryman League Division One South, earning promotion to the Ryman Premier League. Tommy left the UK in 2013 for a brief spell with Australian side Melbourne Knights FC, but rejoined The Hawks later in 2013, shortly after winning the Ryman Premier League, a 2nd promotion in a row.
In his 2nd spell with us, Tommy was part of the side which kept The Hawks in the Conference South, finishing 1 point and 1 place above the relegation zone, in our first season at this level. At the end of the season, Tommy left for Ebbsfleet United and spells at local sides Peacehaven & Telscombe and Lewes followed, before joining previous side Burgess Hill Town last Summer for their first ever season in the Ryman Premier Division.
Everyone at Whitehawk FC welcomes Tommy back to The Enclosed Ground!
