Thomas Pinault

Date of birth04 December 1981
Place of birthGrasse
NationalityFrench
Weight73 kg
Height1.78 m
PositionMidfielder

The Frenchman made a dozen appearances for Cannes before joining Colchester United on a free transfer.

Although Thomas netted a great 25-yarder when coming on from the subs' bench for the Us against Luton Town in December 2000, boss Steve Whitton seemed reluctant to play him on a regular basis and it was only when the club were safe from relegation that he was introduced to the starting line-up.

He is a very promising central midfield player who has shown great composure in his first-team outings.

Thomas joined Grimsby Town in July 2004 with a one-year contract.

He was made available for transfer by Brentford in December 2006.
