Wilson Arnold Lewis (1873 – after 1898) was an English professional footballer who made 20 appearances in the Football League playing for Small Heath.[1] He played as a centre forward.

Lewis was born in Evesham, Worcestershire. He joined Small Heath from Birmingham & District League champions Hereford Thistle in 1897.[2][3] He made his Small Heath debut on 4 September 1897, the opening day of the 1897–98 Second Division season, in a 3–1 win at home to Burton Swifts. In his first 14 games he scored seven goals, but his form dipped in the latter part of the season,[4] and the arrival of Bob McRoberts prompted Lewis's return to non-league football with Bromyard.[2]
