Thornely was rewarded for his excellent form in the second XI championship in 2007, in which he scored 800 runs, with a new two-year contract for Sussex. He made his first-class debut for the club in the same season, playing against the touring India side at Hove, but failed to make much of an impression. He played two championship matches in 2008.
