Aaron Thompson - 2013-14 Canberra Cavalry
Thompson is a rare type of ABL player - one who switched clubs during an ABL season. Thompson had previously played for the Brisbane Bandits in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 ABL seasons, and started with them again at the start of the 2013-14 ABL season. He was however mainly used as pitching "insurance" on the Bandits' 30 man roster, usually not making it onto the regular 22 man playing roster for each series. After 2 games with Brisbane during the early part of the season, he and fellow Bandits team mate Steve Chambers joined the Canberra Cavalry, joining the starting rotation. It would seem to be a positive move for Thompson, noting that in 5 games with the Cavalry he pitched more innings in the ABL than in the 4 previous seasons combined with the Bandits.
