Aaron Lewis Commits to Newport County
The defender joined the club in the previous transfer window and has now earnt himself the reward he deserves, meaning he has put pen-to-paper on a contract that will see him remain at Rodney Parade until summer of 2023.
After signing the new deal, Lewis said: “I’m buzzing, I’m really excited to be back, obviously this is a two-year deal so we’re just trying to pick up where we left off last season which was a little disappointing. I think there’s been quite a few of the boys that have wanted to come back and make it right so I’m happy to be a part of it. Seeing the gaffer even before I came for the first time and seeing the way that they wanted to play football, everything seemed to suit me including the style of play, so it was nice to be able to come back and finally get some football under my belt. Securing that promotion is definitely one of the main aims for next season, it has to be! If you look back at the last few seasons, it’s been an upwards path that this club is on. After missing out so narrowly on promotion last season I think we’ve got to make it right this time.
Manager Michael Flynn added: “I’m delighted that Aaron has signed, from January onwards he proved himself to be a valuable player for us, he can play in a lot of different positions and I’m glad to have secured his signature.”
Well deserved Aaron
