Vanarama National League club Guiseley AFC have agreed terms with striker Reece Thompson.

However, the fee for the 23-year-old from National League North outfit North Ferriby United may have to be decided by FA Tribunal unless the clubs can agree a compensation package.

Thompson was born in Worksop and started his career with Retford United’s youth system before he served his apprenticeship with Lincoln City.

He made one first-team appearance for The Imps as a substitute in 2012 and was then released and re-joined Retford.

Thompson broke the record for goals scored in the under-19 league, with 32 goals from eighteen appearances.

He scored 14 goals in twenty games with Retford’s first-team from Christmas to the end of the 2012/13 season and scored 39 goals in the 2013/14 season.

He joined Frickley Athletic in October 2014 and signed a contract with the club a month later.

He finished the 2014/15 season with 15 goals from thirty-two matches and was rewarded with a new two-year contract by Frickley.

After a successful trial, Thompson signed for then-League Two York City in August 2015 for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract.

He made fourteen League appearances for the Minstermen, scoring 3 goals.

In September 2016 Thompson left York by mutual consent before joining their then-National League rivals and newly-promoted North Ferriby.

Last season he made thirty-eight appearances for Ferriby, scoring 12 goals.
