Alton Thelwell (born September 5, 1980 in Islington, London) is a professional footballer currently playing for Leyton Orient in England's Football League One.

Thelwell is a defender who was signed for Hull City on June 13, 2003 by then manager Peter Taylor after being released from Tottenham Hotspur. Thelwell had made 18 league appearances in his time at Spurs. He had also spent two months on loan playing for Swedish side IFK Hassleholm, and won one England Under-21 cap in February 2001. However injuries robbed him of further first-team opportunities at Spurs, and he was released by then boss Glenn Hoddle.

Fitness problems have also blighted Thelwell's time at Hull City, and he missed over a year from October 2004 to February 2006 due to a serious knee injury. Hull City had extended his contract at the start of the 2005-06 season, but at a much reduced rate of pay. After proving his fitness and featuring in nine of City's last thirteen games of the season, Thelwell was rewarded with a further year's contract extension.

Finding his first team opportunities at the KC Stadium limited, Alton joined Leyton Orient on loan in October 2006, making his debut in the League One fixture against Cheltenham Town on October 21, 2006.

Alton impressed during his loan spell and was rewarded with a permanent 18-month contract when the transfer window reopened on January 1, 2007.

He was named as Leyton Orient club captain at the start of the 2007/08 season.

Alton attended Rokeby School in Stratford, Newham, London.
