Lewis has been at Saints since the age of nine and has steadily progressed through the age groups, signing his first professional contract in November 2021.

He was a part of the Under-18s Premier League South title-winning team in the 2021/22 season.

The versatile defender, whose preferred position is at right-back, has been involved in first team training on several occasions and has captained the B team multiple times.

He spent time with National League side Eastleigh in his first senior loan spell in February before returning to Saints for a busy end to the season.
