Thabo played at Campbelltown City in 2012 and 2013.

The seventeen-year-old also played for Eastern United for three years from 2014 to 2016. United paid tribute to him on social media claiming that "he [Thabo] could always make his friends laugh, was positive, always had a smile on his face and will be truly missed." 

Thabo then joined Playford Patriots in 2017 before eventually joining Salisbury United at the beginning of this year.
