Jonathan Neil "Jon" Guthrie (born 29 July 1992) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for League One club Walsall.

Career[edit]

Guthrie was born in Devizes, Wiltshire. He started his career with Pewsey Vale, progressing through the youth system before playing for the first-team in the Wessex League from the age of 16.[2]

Crewe Alexandra[edit]

In September 2011, he joined League Two side Crewe Alexandra on a 10-week trial.[3] In February 2012, he signed his first professional contract with Crewe, on an 18-month deal.[4] In March 2012, he joined Northern Premier League side Leek Town on loan, where he made a total of 8 appearances.[5]

He made his professional debut for Crewe on 23 October 2012, in a 2–1 win over Swindon Town in League One, coming on as a late substitute for Michael West. He scored his first professional goal on 27 February 2016, against Barnsley.[6] The following month, he signed a new contract at Crewe through to the summer of 2017[7] and in August 2016 was offered a new contract beyond 2017.[8] In March 2017, he was sidelined with a hernia problem.[9]

On 9 May 2017, Crewe said Guthrie's contract offer remained open[10] but manager David Artell gave a 22 May deadline for a decision, otherwise the offer would be "ripped up".[11] On 23 May it was confirmed that Guthrie would be leaving the club.[12]

Walsall[edit]

On 22 June 2017, Guthrie agreed to join League One side Walsall on a two-year contract.[13]
