Biography

Tom Lawrence will be hoping to step up to the next level this term after an impressive first season with Derby County.

The forward had to wait a little while to get off the mark for The Rams, with his first goal coming in November, but he was a consistent creative outlet throughout the year.

He created more chances than any other Derby player and he displayed set-piece prowess, with his free-kick against Preston North End contributing to his tally of six goals in all competitions.

A boyhood Manchester United supporter, Lawrence was handed his senior debut for the club by current Wales boss Ryan Giggs in a 3-1 win against Hull City at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.

Lawrence left at the end of that season in pursuit of regular first team football and he joined Leicester City in September 2014.

He headed out on loan with Rotherham United, Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, before he enjoyed a breakout year at Ipswich Town.

Lawrence scored 11 times for Mick McCarthy’s side during the 2016/17 season, whilst he also provided 11 assists, and it was that creative output that persuaded The Rams to bring him to Pride Park Stadium last summer.

On the international scene, Lawrence pledged his allegiance to Wales and he has featured for his country from Under-17 level right through to the senior set-up.

He made his senior debut in October 2015, and he grabbed his first goal for his country against Georgia shortly after his move to Derby, whilst he added a second goal against Panama in November 2017.
