After a handful of appearances for Sporting, Gwilt elected to join league rivals AFC Wulfrunians in November 2022, where he became an established player at the base of midfield as Wulfs finished in a mid-table twelfth position

Gwilt was handed an opportunity at Keys Park at the start of the 2023-2024 pre-season, making several appearances as a triallist and impressing manager Danny Glover sufficiently to be offered terms for the forthcoming campaign
