Tom moved to King’s College from the Midlands in September 2015 and soon after joined the Somerset Academy.

The following summer he scored runs and kept wicket with considerable success and was a key member of the Somerset side that competed in the Second XI Finals Day at Arundel.

In 2017 Tom grabbed his chance and made his senior debut in the NatWest T20 Blast away game against Middlesex during which he claimed a leg side stumping to remove Dawid Malan off Michael Leask.

Tom also represented England Under 19s in their series against India in 2017.

At the end of the 2017 season Tom signed his first full two year contract with Somerset.

During 2018 Tom made both his List A and Championship debuts for Somerset and is spending his winter playing Grade Cricket for South Perth.

Tom enjoyed an amazing 2019 season, in which he scored a maiden T20 and List A hundred. He won Somerset’s White Ball Player of the Year, the PCA Young Cricketer of the Year and the coveted Cricket Writers Club Young Cricketer of the Year Award. His performances attracted huge public attention and was rewarded with an international debut against New Zealand in November 2019.

Tom ended 2019 playing in the Big Bash for Brisbane Heat and earning himself an IPL contract with Kolkata Knight Riders. He signed a long-term contract extension with the Club in October. Tom plays his Club cricket for Taunton St Andrews Cricket Club.
