Arsenal Career 1907 - 1921
Position:
Appearances 220 (220 starts, 0 as a sub)
Goals 34

Lewis played in every forward position in the first team after making his league debut in a 4-0 win over Sunderland in December 1907.

The attacker was a first-team regular during Arsenal's period of struggle as they flirted with relegation from Division One in the 1909/10 season.

Financial problems forced the Club to sell many of its better players but Lewis remained loyal, despite Arsenal’s drop to Division Two in 1913.

This was, however, an exciting time for the Club. They had moved to their new Highbury home by the start of the next campaign and Lewis was a part of that.

The First World War hampered the forward’s progress but he still managed 43 appearances during wartime.

Lewis left to join Margate in summer 1921 after scoring 34 goals in 220 starts for Arsenal.
