Aaron Lewis Re-Joins Newport County
A Second Spell With the Exiles
The 22-year-old initially arrived at Rodney Parade on a loan deal from Lincoln City back in October but made just one appearance in a 2-1 defeat to Leyton Orient on December 12.
He returned to Sincil Bank on January 2 but has now linked up with Michael Flynn’s side for the remainder of the campaign.
Manager Flynn told newport-county.co.uk: “Aaron is a player who I have watched over the last few seasons and I know the quality he possesses.
“He was very keen on coming back here after spending the first half of the season with us, so I’m very pleased that he’s decided to join us for the rest of the season. He will add cover in lots of areas.”
Aaron Lewis Started his Career at Swansea City
Lewis began his career at Swansea City and ventured out on loan to Doncaster Rovers while at the Liberty Stadium.
The defender left the Swans without making a first-team appearance for the club and moved to Lincoln on a free transfer back in August 2019.
He made five appearances and scored one goal for the Imps – that came in a 4-3 defeat to Accrington Stanley on February 15, 2020.
In total, Lewis has played ten games in the Football League, with that one goal coming against Accrington.
Newport Looking to Arrest a Slump in Form
Lewis links back up with a Newport side that sits seventh in League Two, and they will be looking to arrest a slump in form that has seen them go without a win in their last eight games.
The Exiles are next in action at home to Grimsby Town on February 6.
