Tom Lorraine is a striker who joined the Club from Cogenhoe United at the end of March 2014, where he was registered with Daventry Town on a “dual-registration” basis. He had appeared for Woodford United, Banbury United and Bedworth United earlier in his career. He was the Club’s top scorer in their promotion winning 2014/15 campaign scoring 19 goals, but showed his flexibility by playing in midfield towards the end of the season to provide much-needed cover in that position. He was also the top scorer in 2015/16 with 15 goals as the Club played their first season at Step 4, picking up the Manager’s Player of the Season award. He became the Club’s overall top scorer during the 2016/17 season, passing his half-century of goals during his Diamonds’ career. During that campaign he also picked up two Player of the Month awards, scoring a further 18 goals. In 2017/18 he repeated that feat as he helped the Club to gain promotion to Step 3, scoring 16 goals from 32 starts and being awarded two Player of the Month awards. In 2018/19 he continued his goal scoring form, winning the “Golden Boot” as well as the Supporters’ Player of the Season award.

03/12/21: The Club can confirm that Tom ‘Shanks’ Lorraine has today signed for Daventry Town. Shanks joined the Club at the end of March 2014 from Cogenhoe United and quickly became a fans’ favourite, scoring goals for fun. He is the Club’s all-time top goal scorer having scored his 100th Diamonds’ goal for the Club this season in the Southern League Challenge Cup fixture at Peterborough Sports on 5th October 2021. Tom was the Club’s top scorer in our promotion winning 2014/15 campaign scoring 19 goals, but showed his flexibility by playing in midfield towards the end of the season to provide much-needed cover in that position. He was also the top scorer in 2015/16 with 15 goals as the Club played their first season at Step 4, picking up the Manager’s Player of the Season award. He became the Club’s overall top scorer during the 2016/17 season, passing his half-century of goals during his Diamonds’ career. During that campaign he also picked up two Player of the Month awards, scoring a further 18 goals. In 2017/18 he repeated that feat as he helped the Club to gain promotion to Step 3, scoring 16 goals from 32 starts and being awarded two Player of the Month awards. In 2018/19 he continued his goal scoring form, winning the “Golden Boot” as well as the Supporters’ Player of the Season award. On leaving the club Tom said “Moving on has been a tough decision, I’ve enjoyed every second of my time at Rushden and want to thank the management team, the Board, the volunteers and most importantly, every single supporter for their encouragement over the years. I’ll be sure to come back and say hello whenever I have the chance”

03/03/23: Tom signed for Cambridge City.

01/07/23: Tom re-signed for AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
