Lewis Thompson




Date of birth





Northern Ireland

Lewis joined Rovers from Manchester United at the start of the 2016-17 season, and enjoyed 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 the 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, who is a current Northern Ireland Under-21 international, spent a month with FC United of Manchester early in the 2018-19 season and has since been a consistent performer for Rovers' Under-23s side.
