Adam Thompstone joined London Irish in July 2007. He signed a new two year contract in April 2009 that saw him move from the Academy to the senior squad.
Adam started playing mini rugby at the age of five at the Sutton and Epsom club. When he went to Whitgift School, the famous south-east London rugby school at the age of 13, he was immediately involved in the school team, one that went on to win the Under 15 Daily Mail Schools Rugby Cup.
After school there was a brief diversion into Harlequins before he joined the London Irish Academy in July 2007. He made his senior debut away to Worcester Warriors in an EDF Energy Cup match on 5th October 2008.
He went on to make 16 first team appearances last season during which he scored nine tries, including seven in 12 Premiership matches, an extraordinary strike rate given modern defences. He received the 'Academy Player of the Season Award' at the club's annual player awards ceremony in May 2009.
Adam has represented England at Under 20 level.
