Career[edit]

John-Lewis started his career with Grantham Town. After going on trial for Middlesbrough, and being linked with Cardiff City, he joined Lincoln City where he was awarded a scholarship.[2][3]

Lincoln City[edit]

He made his Lincoln debut in the FA Cup against Port Vale on 11 November 2006.[4] He scored his first goal in his second league appearance, against Stockport County on 4 December 2007.[5] On 26 December 2007 John-Lewis scored an equaliser in the 51st minute, smashing the ball home off the bar into the top corner in the 2–1 defeat at Bradford City.[6]

On 7 May 2010 John-Lewis was placed on the transfer list by Lincoln City manager Chris Sutton.[7] Two weeks later, he departed the club by mutual consent.[8]

Bury[edit]

On 5 August 2010 he signed a twelve month contract with Bury after impressing manager Alan Knill.[9][10] In May 2011 he was offered a new 12 month contract,[11] which he signed in June 2011.[12]

Grimsby Town[edit]

On 31 January 2013 John-Lewis signed for Grimsby Town on an 18 month deal.[13] In May 2014 he activated a clause in his contract giving him another year with The Mariners.[14] He wears the squad number 14 because his heroes are Thierry Henry and Terry Barwick.
