Adam Lewis makes his 200th appearance on Saturday

Many congratulations to Fylde 1st XV skipper Adam Lewis who will make his 200th appearance for the Club against South Leicester on Saturday (ko 3pm). This occasion was delayed due to Adam missing the last six National Two (North) matches through injury.

Adam, 31, was a mini-junior at the Club and a prominent player at Kirkham Grammar School before making his 1st team debut in the 2006/7 season. He left to join Sedgley Tigers in 2010 before returning to his local club in 2013. The powerful prop forward can play either side of the scrummage

He earned senior representative honours for England Counties in 2014 and has been a regular part of the successful Lancashire squad over recent seasons including leading the squad in their triumphant 2018 cup-winning Twickenham Final victory. Adam played for England U’18s whilst a student at KGS. He has also played representative rugby for Welsh Exiles U’16s & U’18s as well as spending periods in the Leeds & Sale Sharks Academies.

Adam Lewis said: “I am thoroughly looking forward to achieving my 200th cap for the club on Saturday. There are some incredible players who have achieved this, some of whom I’m lucky enough to call friends now.”

Head Coach Warren Spragg said: “Adam has been a consistently high performer at the Club for a number of years now, shown by making his 200th game against South Leicester on Saturday. He has grown as a leader in the past 12 months, as an excellent vice captain and most recently as a successful Lancashire captain. He has the respect of the young players for the right reasons – as a role model and a player who cares both about his own and the team’s performance.
