Manchester United take Southport’s Andrew Lewis on trial – report

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United have continued their recent youth intake by taking Southport forward Andrew Lewis on trial.

According to ESPN, United moved ahead of Everton, Burnley and Blackburn who were all interested in casting an eye over the 19-year-old and brought in Lewis for a two-week trial spell.

Lewis, who was previously at Tranmere Rovers until the age of 14, alerted a number of England’s top sides to his situation after scoring 38 goals for Southport’s reserve side this season, which is an impressive number regardless of the age or competition.

There are always plenty of youngsters who Man United bring into the club on a trial basis but if Lewis impresses coaches at the club, he could earn himself a permanent deal.

Lewis can take inspiration from Sadiq El Fitouri who signed for Man United last month from Salford City.

The 20-year-old was previously part of Manchester City’s academy but was brought into the club on the recommendation of Paul Scholes and Phil Neville after they watched him in action for Salford.
