Now though is the time to apply himself and play some regular football and Head Coach Shaw is certain that the setup now in place at Gainsborough will help Lewis achieve his potential. "Lewis joins us after spending a very long time at Scunthorpe United, breaking through to their first team and having some great experiences. He lives in Gainsborough, is aware of what the club means to the town, and I think we could be a really good platform for him to show his attributes and ability."

Shaw continued, "He is predominantly a left full back, but I see him being able to play a few roles within our system. He has turned down other really good opportunities, and better financial offers to join what we are trying to create at Gainsborough. I think this could be a really positive move for all parties."

With game time now the main priority for the former Scunthorpe Academy Graduate, Butroid follows the path recently trodden by George Hornshaw making the short journey from Glanford Park to the Northolme. Welcome home, Lewis!
