Early career

Thiney began her career playing for ASS Brienne-le-Château in the commune of Brienne-le-Château, which is 26 miles northeast of her hometown Troyes. After a stint in the youth system, she moved a few miles north to Olympique Saint-Memmie, who were playing in the first division of French women's football. She made her league debut with Saint-Memmie during the 2000–01 season. Thiney spent six seasons at the club and, following the 2005–06 season, secured a moved to US Compiègne Oise in Compiègne. In her first season with the club, she appeared in 21 matches and scored five goals. Unfortunately, Compiègne suffered relegation to the second division. Thiney spent her final season with the club in D2 Féminine and was easily the best player in the team appearing in 18 matches and scoring a team-leading 20 goals.

Juvisy

Thiney's successful play earned her a call up to the national team and also a move to top-tier club FCF Juvisy. In Thiney's first season with Juvisy, she appeared in 21 matches and scored seven goals helping Juvisy finish in 3rd position, one point shy of qualifying for the newly created UEFA Women's Champions League. In the 2009–10 season, Thiney remained potent on the field scoring nine goals helping Juvisy finish runner-up to Lyon in the league, which inserted the club into the 2010–11 edition of the UEFA Women's Champions League. In the competition, she scored a goal in the first qualifying round against Estonian club Levadia Tallinn in a 12–0 win. After contributing to Juvisy reaching the knockout stage, Thiney increased her contribution by scoring a goal in each leg of the team's 9–0 aggregate victory over Icelandic club Breiðablik in the Round of 32. Juvisy ultimately suffered elimination in the competition at the hands of the defending champions Turbine Potsdam. In league play, Thiney converted 11 goals, second-best on the team behind lead striker Laëtitia Tonazzi. Juvisy, however, finished the season in a disappointing 4th place.
