Marcel Lewis joined our Academy in 2015 after signing from Cambridge United as an Under-14.

An attacking midfield player, he can play wide or as a number 10 and has good technique, which he works hard to improve all the time. He made six youth team appearances while still a schoolboy, scoring with a speciality free-kick in a 5-1 win over Swansea City in February 2018. He signed his first professional contract at the club on his 17th birthday.

In the 2018/19 season, Lewis made 25 domestic appearances and scored the first of four league goals against West Ham in a 5-0 away victory in October. His eight assists were also valuable as Andy Myers's side finished third in the southern division. The wideman made his UEFA Youth League debut in the second leg of our 14-1 aggregate win over Molde in October.
