Lewis has plied his trade at Basford since October 2016. He signed for Basford from Grantham, having also had spells with Quorn & Stamford, and having played professionally for Cambridge United. Part of a successful side, that has been in and around the top end of the Northern Premier, his knowledge will greatly lend to the young, energetic looking squad the Holy Blues are piecing together.

On the signing, Shaw enthused, "I am so pleased to be able to bring Lewis to the club. He is a really impressive man with how he carries himself on and off the pitch and fits the profile perfectly for the role within the group that he will play."

"He has played a lot of games at this level at the top end of the division and brings a wealth of experience. He is mobile and athletic and that will allow us to defend how we want to defend with his physicality. He will partner a younger centre half Next season so his character, personality and nous will hugely benefit those around him."

"I feel this signing shows the pull of Gainsborough Trinity as a football club, its fan base and reputation along with the way we will be working this season have attracted Lewis ahead of potentially better offers financially elsewhere."

Lewis simply said, "I am delighted to sign with Gainsborough. It’s a fantastic club with great fans! Cant wait to get started next season". Welcome to the football club, Lewis. Here's to a successful season.
