A-Z: Lewis Travis

Learn a little more about the Rovers midfielder, who discusses all sorts in our A-Z feature

18 March 2019

This season, we're introducing a new feature, bringing Rovers fans that bit closer to members of the current first-team squad.

The idea is simple: 26 questions, one for each letter of the alphabet, with subjects ranging from the players' favourite holiday destinations to the strangest things they've ever seen.

Next up in A-Z is Lewis Travis, who discusses teeth, being the only Liverpudlian who supports Manchester United and his girlfriend (a lot).

A – AWAY - What is your favourite away ground that you've played at?

St. James’ Park this year in the FA Cup. The stadium was pretty full and it was one of my first starts for the team this season, so I was buzzing. It was a special day. 

B – BANTER – Who's got the best banter in the squad?

Dacky. He’s always being stupid, isn’t he? He thinks he’s funny anyway! The worst banter would probably be David Raya. I don’t think anyone understands his Spanish jokes!

C – CLUB – What football team do you support?

Manchester United. My mum always supported them, so I grew up supporting them. It was obviously a bit weird growing up in and playing for Liverpool, when I supported United, so I always got quite a bit of stick! 

D – DINING – What would be your last three-course meal?

Cheesy garlic bread for starter. A nice fillet steak, cooked medium, with chips for main. I don’t eat desserts – I’m a healthy man! But if I had to, I’d go for a chocolate fudge cake. 

E – EVENINGS – A quiet night in or a night out with the lads? Why?

My missus is going to read this … I’m going to have to say a quiet night in with the missus aren’t I?!

F – FOREIGN – What's your favourite holiday destination and why?

We went to Dubai last year and it was really nice. It was one of my first holidays with my girlfriend as well, so I’d say there.

G – GAME – What's been your favourite football game you've ever played in?

The West Brom game at home on New Year’s Day when we won 2-1. I was named Man of the Match, so that was really good.

H – HOBBIES – What do you like to get up to away from football?

I normally get dragged round shopping with the missus! Other than that, I like to play Fortnite with all the boys on the PlayStation.

I – IDOL – Who was your favourite footballer as a youngster and why?

I’ve always looked up to Paul Scholes, with him being a central midfielder. And Wayne Rooney as well. I always loved him growing up.

J – JOBS – Have you had any other jobs aside from playing football?

Nothing! Just football. If I wasn’t a footballer, I would probably have applied to go on Love Island! 

K – KID – What were you like as a young boy?

I was alright in school. I wasn’t the cleverest, but I was quite a well behaved kid. I’ve maybe given my mum a few more problems as I’ve got older.

L – LOATH – What annoys you the most and why?

My girlfriend taking at least three hours to get ready and we’re always late! It kills me!

M – MUSIC – What sort of music are you into and what's your favourite ever tune?

I like Drake.

N – NICKNAME – What's the best nickname you've come across in your footballing career?

I get called Teeth quite a lot! I can’t really repeat some of the other nicknames I’ve come across!

O – OPTIMISM – What would you like to achieve in your career?

I would obviously love to play in the Premier League one day. And after football, I would just like to stay involved in the game, maybe as a coach or something.

P – PETS – Do you have any pets?

Yes, I’ve got a dog called Lulu. She’s a Cockapoo.

Q – QUALITY – Who's the best player you've ever played with or against and why?

I trained with Jonjo Shelvey at Liverpool and I played against him when we played Newcastle in the FA Cup and he was very good.

R – RAPID – Who's the quickest player you've played with or against?

Adama Traore, who’s now at Wolves. I played against him for the Under-23s and he was rapid. The quickest here at Rovers is probably Joe Rothwell.

S – STRANGE – What's the strangest thing you've seen in your life?

Joe Nuttall’s toes! They’re horrible!

T – TELEVISION – What do you like to watch on the TV and why?

I love watching series on Netflix. I’m watching Dirty John at the moment. I’ve watched Gossip Girl. I watch quite a lot with my girlfriend.

U – UNKNOWN – Tell us something that people don't know about you.

I can play the piano … sort of! I used to do it when I was younger. I’m pretty average actually. 

V – VIDEO GAMES – Do you own a games console and if so how often do you play it?

Fortnite and a bit of FIFA.

W – WORLD – Where would you most like to visit in your life?

I’d like to try and travel everywhere to be honest. Thailand is probably top of my list.

X – XYLOPHONE – Can you play any musical instruments?

Just the piano. 

Y – YIKES – Do you have a fear of anything?

My only fear is of Ben Brereton’s breath! I’m not a big fan of little rats and things like that either.

Z – ZODIAC – What's your star sign?

Libra, I think. I was born in October.
