Thompson had a breakthrough season in 2019, making his first-class and List-A debuts while also securing a regular place in the Vikings' Vitality Blast side.

He said:

I've played for the White Rose since I was nine years old and have come through the pathways.

"I've always said it was a dream of mine to walk out at Headingley and play for Yorkshire. Every time I walk out at Headingley it's a privilege. I certainly have a lot of pride representing Yorkshire.

"Hopefully we can kick on and build a good squad to start winning some trophies."
