He’s back! Thirteen years since his historic goal against Swansea City, Lewis Taylor is set to pull on the Horsham shirt once again after agreeing to rejoin the club from Dorking Wanderers.
The midfield powerhouse should need no introduction for Hornets supporters but, for the benefit of our our newer fans, Lewis first joined the club in 2006 from Whyteleafe, having been on the books of Fulham and AFC Wimbledon as a youngster, and went on to score 22 goals in 91 appearances before returning to the Dons and helping them reach the Conference National en route to the Football League.
Lewis has also played for Margate, Carshalton Athletic, Bromley, Kingstonian and Whitehawk, as well as loan spells at East Grinstead Town and Horsham YMCA, and scored the goals that earned both Tonbridge Angels and Dorking Wanderers promotion to the National League.
The 34 year old is expected to fill the void left by Lea Dawson, after the former Cray captain returned to another of his old clubs, VCD Athletic, this week. Lea enjoyed an impressive debut season for the Hornets, scoring four times in 37 games before the campaign was prematurely brought to a close, and we thank him for his service.
