A talented goalkeeper and a hit with the fans, Lawrence Thomas has already proven himself on the Hyundai A-League's biggest stage.
Thomas kept two consecutive clean sheets in the 2015 Finals Series as Melbourne Victory secured its third Premiership-Championship double.
Promoted in the absence of Nathan Coe, Thomas was outstanding as Victory accounted for Melbourne City in the Semi Finals and Sydney FC in the Grand Final, winning both games 3-0.
Thomas then cemented his spot as Victory's number one keeper with a promising 2016/2017 campaign.
Thomas started his senior career with Marconi Stallions in the NSW Premier League, before joining Blacktown City and then the Australian Institute of Sport.
He signed with Victory in September 2011, making his Hyundai A-League debut in Round 5 of the 2011/12 season.
