Southampton: Harry Lewis delivers match-winning display against Wolves U23’s

Harry Lewis is a player who, despite spending most of his time playing youth football, is someone who Southampton fans may well have heard of.

The Shrewsbury-born glovesman has made three first-team appearances for the Saints, all of which have come in the FA Cup, while he has also been named on the bench by Ralph Hasenhuttl on three occasions this season – once in the Premier League for the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham, and also in both FA Cup games before Wednesday’s fourth round replay kicks off.

The once-capped England U18 international hasn’t made a first-team outing yet this season, but he did his chances of earning one no harm with his performance against Wolves U23’s in the Premier League 2 affair at Staplewood on Monday evening.

Somehow, Dave Horseman’s side managed to run out 1-0 winners against the Midlands-based side’s youngsters, largely thanks to Lewis in between the sticks.

Wolves had a huge 13 shots to Southampton’s three, and while they only managed to get three of their many efforts on target, Lewis had a large part to play in none of them going in.

Does Harry Lewis have a future at Southampton?





As Southampton’s official Twitter account showcased, the 22-year-old pulled off one fine stop with his feet in the 55th minute after some good work down the left from Taylor Perry, who cut inside and shot low, only to be denied by a smart piece of goalkeeping.

Then, the Saints glovesman popped up again to be a hero for his teammates, bravely blocking a powerfully struck effort in the 72nd minute and also ensuring that it went behind for a corner rather than back into the danger area.

All of Lewis’ efforts were made worthwhile in the 85th minute, when Dare Olufunwa headed home a late corner to ensure that Southampton were victorious, despite having ten less shots than their opponents.

If the Southampton U23 squad wanted to thank anyone for the win, they can point their gratitude towards Lewis for some fine, match-winning stops.
