Centre back Will is a product of Dave Currie’s Academy setup.
Thornton made his first team debut in a 0-0 draw at Boreham Wood on 18th March 2017 coming on as a substitute for Elliot Green.
Will was formerly known as Will Wells before changing his name by deed poll before the 2018/19 season.
In his breakthrough 18/19 season Will made 26 starts and eight sub appearances scoring five goals.
On signing his new deal for the 19/20 campaign Will said “Obviously I am delighted to stay with the club. I have been at Guiseley for a while now having come through the Academy and I love it.
“I want to establish myself in the team and get more games after breaking through into the first team last season. I am looking for us to do a lot better than last season, I am hoping for us to do better as a team.
“On a personal note I want to keep improving. I will always give 100% for this club, I absolutely love it here and I want to continue learning and improving my performance.”
