Lewis Thompson




Date of birth





Northern Ireland

Lewis joined Rovers from Manchester United at the start of the 2016-17 season, enjoying an outstanding first year at the club.

Having made the left-back slot his own, he went on to make 27 appearances for the Under-18s, scoring three memorable goals, two of which came against his former club.

Impressive displays saw Lewis end the 2016-17 season with Damien Johnson's development squad, with a further five appearances to his name, and he built on that experience as he moved into the second year of his scholarship.

Formerly of Manchester United's youth teams, Thompson has appeared for England at Under-16 level and Northern Ireland at various youth levels.

The young full back spent a month with FC United of Manchester early in the 2018-19 season, alongside another Rover in Lewis Mansell.
