On Livingston’s website, Manager David Martindale said:
I think Tom is an excellent signing having played close to 400 professional games, with the majority of those coming in League 2 in England. A real no-nonsense defender who is a leader on the park, aggressive in both boxes and has a very good left foot. Tom will bring a wealth of experience to our squad and I believe there is still more to come from him having watched him closely and spoken to the player himself at length.
He comes to us at a great age and I’m really looking forward to seeing what Tom brings to the group on a match day. He has shown a real hunger to try the football up in Scotland and was very easy to work with due to his appetite to try something new.
