Lewis Payne BiographyLast updated 19 Apr 2023
Southampton Debut: 23rd August 2022, Cambridge 0-3 Saints
Loans: Eastleigh (2022/23)
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.
This season, he has enjoyed an impressive personal campaign as he made his senior debut in the Carabao Cup second round in October 2022, playing 75 minutes and registering an assist for Ché Adams’s opener.
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.
