Biography


Previously with DUSC, Lewis joined United's youth academy at age ten. Graduating from the Scottish FA Performance programme at St John's High School in 2019, he signed his first professional contract with the club that same year, having also been played for and captained the Scotland U16s side against Australia.

Having played with the reserves and been involved as an unused substitute with first team squads during the 2019-20 campaign, Lewis also went on to play for Scotland at U17 level, before he signed a contract extension on 10th March 2020, keeping him at United until the summer of 2022.

He went on to make his first team debut under manager Micky Mellon at the beginning of the 2020-21 season.

In March 2020, Lewis signed a new contract to stay at United until the summer of 2022, but was featured only sparingly during the following season. At the end of his contract he left the club having turned down an offer of renewal. He then joined Hearts.
