TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS' Martha Thomas was born in Malmesbury. 

Thomas, who is second joint top goal-scorer in this season's Women's Super League, was born in the Wiltshire town. 

The Scottish international made history in December when she scored the only goal in a historic 1-0 win against North London rivals Arsenal. 

Martha Thomas’ ninth goal of the season fired Tottenham to a maiden victory over Arsenal in the Women’s Super League.

She recently said that she had rediscovered her smile on the pitch following her summer switch to Tottenham from Manchester United and is thriving on the belief being shown in her at her new club.

Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard:

The Scotland forward concluded a two-year stay with United after a 2022-23 season in which she made 20 Women’s Super League appearances for Marc Skinner’s side but only one start within that, scoring one goal.

Moving on to Robert Vilahamn’s Spurs, Thomas – starting at centre-forward – went on to net six times in the team’s first four league games this term to top the early Golden Boot standings, and was named Barclays Player of the Month for October.

This included a sublime hat-trick against Aston Villa. 

She said: “I didn’t feel like I came here with a point to prove, I just feel like it’s worked out that way because I’m playing football with a smile, that’s when I play my best, and you’re just now seeing what I’m actually capable of doing.

“If I’m happy and playing in a team where I feel valued and they’ve got that belief, then I’m going to play my best and the goals are going to come.

“I think I’ve settled in really well here, I think the style Robert wants to play and the team we have complement me quite well.”
