Jordan Thewlis Joins The Lions

We are delighted to announce the signing of striker Jordan Thewlis following his departure from Boston United.

Russ O’Neill has finally got his man after signing former Boston United forward Jordan Thewlis for the coming season writes Rachel O’Connor.

Thewlis has been a target for O’Neill a number of times in the past and now the Scunthorpe-based player will join up with The Lions’ boss as a new season in National League North looms.

Jordan, 28, has plenty of experience of playing at this level and of playing for a Yorkshire club having twice previously been a Harrogate Town player as well as having played for Scarborough Athletic.

The Scunthorpe-raised player started playing football at the age of six and progressed through the Scunthorpe United Academy before signing a professional contract with Scunthorpe. He had two two season spells with Harrogate and spent a season at Gainsborough before signing for Boston United, where he has spent the past two Covid hit campaigns.

Thewlis, who runs his own business renovating property, scored 22 goals in 53 games for Boston and appeared in the play-off semi-final for them last season.

That was when he felt the lack of fans at games the most saying: “It was such a big game for us but without fans it felt flat, more like a pre-season friendly.”

Thewlis can play as an out and out striker or as a winger but said: “I played out wide quite a bit for Boston and at Gainsborough but I prefer to play as a central striker. I think the highlight for me last season was scoring in the FA Cup game against Rochdale.”

Thewlis is happy to link up with his new teammates at Guiseley saying: “This is the first time I have joined a club where I have not known any of the players. I don’t normally look forward to training but I am this time after being without football for so long. To keep fit I have been running and going to the gym but I find that necessary but a bit boring.”

Jordan will be at Nethermoor next season and you can be too, 2021/22 season tickets are now available, click here to get yours or click on the image below.
