Whites sign promising young attacking midfielder
The club are very pleased to announce that they have agreed a deal with young attacking midfielder Theo Lewis that will see him join the Whites for the coming season.
Theo was a schoolboy player at both Chelsea and Reading, before joining the Cheltenham Town Centre of Excellence and making a significant impression as part of the youth team.
He scored 16 goals during the 2007/08 season as a youth player, and went on to score against Southampton in a pre-season first team friendly. He made two League One first team appearances as a substitute towards the end of the 2008/09 season. He went on to make over 39 appearances in the first team up until 2012.
Darrell Clarke, Whites Manager, expressed his happiness with the signing, saying “I’m absolutely delighted that we’ve agreed a deal with Theo – we’ve beaten off a fair bit of competition for his signature.
“I was impressed with him as soon as I met him. At our first meeting he wanted to know all about the football side of the club – it’s refreshing to see that kind of focus and professionalism from such a young lad.
“He’s got plenty of ability, he knows how to use the ball, and he can unlock defences – he is impressive as a footballer. I’m looking forward to him putting a White shirt on and getting out on the pitch.”
