HEAD OF FOOTBALL
YEAR JOINED: 2009
Lewis joined Bristol Central YFC as an U15's player during the 2009/2010 season where current chairman Derek Scale was his manager. Lewis joined the coaching team during the 2013/2014 season taking on a then U9's team. Lewis took up the role of Head Coach in 2018 before merging this role with the committee as Head of Football in 2020.
Lewis' first group of players at the club won the regional GFA cup in 2018, the first time the club had won the trophy in 12 years. The same team provided opportunities for players who went on to trial or sign with clubs including Chelsea, Southampton, Bristol City and Birmingham City. In 2019 he started coaching a new Under 9's group at the club, as well as coaching start up teams between U5 - U8's.
His favourite thing about the club is how it provides an inclusive, friendly and community environment for players to enjoy learning football. Lewis has a passion for developing players and providing them with a platform to achieve their football ambitions.
Outside of Bristol Central, Lewis is the West of England Scout for Birmingham City FC and also works closely with innovative private football academy Bristol ADC.
