Thomas Vincensini (born 12 September 1993) is a French professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Canadian Premier League club York United FC.


Early life

Vincensini joined the youth sector of Bastia at age ten. [1]

Club career

Vincensini began his senior career with Bastia. [2] He made his senior debut for the club in a Ligue 2 match in May 2012 against Istres. [2] [1] He signed his first professional contract in 2013. [1] After the side won promotion in 2013 to the top tier, he continued to serve as the backup keeper and made his Ligue 1 debut in 2015 as a substitute in a 1-1 draw against FC Lorient. [2] He made his first Ligue 1 start the next year, keeping a clean sheet against Stade Reims. [2] After the 2016-2017 season, Bastia was administratively relegated to the fifth tier Championnat National 3 and the club lost its professional status, resulting in his contract being automatically terminated. [3] He then went on trial with Stade Brestois. [4]

He played with Bastia-Borgo during the 2017-18 season. [5]

In June 2018, he signed with Ligue 2 side Valenciennes. [6]

In June 2019, he signed with Ligue 2 club Lens. [7]

In June 2020, he was loaned to his former club Bastia, now in the third tier Championnat National. [8] In June 2021, he joined Bastia on a permanent contract, who were now in Ligue 2. [9] [10] On 12 July 2022, Vincensini's contract with Bastia was terminated by mutual consent. [11]

In July 2022, he moved to Virton in Belgium. [12] He began the season as the starting keeper. [13] He also spent some time serving as team captain. [14] After a poor match in March 2023 against Deinze, [15] he was dropped from the matchday squad for the following match, attributed to his poor reaction upon the backup keeper being named the starter. [16] [17] He departed the club at the end of the season.

In February 2024, he signed with Canadian Premier League club York United FC. [18] [19]

International career
