He was recalled to Macclesfield's first team in the 2011/12 season and made 10 appearances before the season's close.

In May 2012 following Macclesfield's relegation to the Conference, Thomas was released at the expiry of his contract. He joined Colwyn Bay in the summer of 2012, he moved back to Leek Town in October 2012.

He then joined Northwich Victoria in 2013 but has until re-signing for Mossley more recently been playing for Linotype Cheadle Heath Nomads in the Cheshire League.
