Guiseley Footballer Given 40months Jail After Beating Girlfriend With Iron Bar, And Forcing Her Eat Paint


The girlfriend of a certain Guiseley football player, Reece Thompson, says she was beaten with an iron bar, forced to eat paint and smashed over the head with two mirrors in a horrific ordeal at the hands of his footballer boyfriend.

Reece Thompson pleaded guilty to damaging property, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and inflicting grievous bodily harm when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court on April 3.

The 25-year-old Reece Thompson, who has played for Retford United, Boston United and made his last appearance with Guiseley AFC before his arrest in September, was jailed for 40 months and received a 10-year restraining order.

Now, his victim has revealed she was abused and humiliated in a devastating series of attacks which left her with a broken jaw.

She said, “Reece rubbed glass into my back and threatened to make me run down the street naked”.

The victim, who wished to remain anonymous, suffered horrific bruising on her body and her face was blackened after the attack, which went on for three days.

She told Lincolnshire Live: “Reece repeatedly hit me.

“He hit me with an iron bar, broke my jaw and smashed a mirror over my head.

“I was made to lick paint up off the floor and then he smashed another mirror over my head.

“It was when he picked up the second mirror that I thought I was going to die, I screamed for him to stop or he would kill me.

“He told me to get my arms down and take the beating like a real person.”

Thompson began his career as a trainee at Lincoln City before going on to make a name for himself at Retford United.

He went on to represent York City in League 2 and North Ferriby United in the National League.

The footballer then signed for Guiseley AFC in the Vanarama National League North and had been living in Bircotes at the time of his arrest.

He also made appearances for Boston United during a season-long loan.

Thompson hasn’t played for Guiseley AFC since September at the time of the attack.

A spokesperson at the club has said: “The club will be making a comment in due course.”
