Avenue Sign Hey on Dual Reg with Silsden

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

We can today confirm the signing of ex-Guiseley midfielder Lewis Hey on dual registration terms with Silsden AFC.

Hey, 19, proved himself a prodigious talent coming through the ranks of the Lion’s Academy set up, but the last few years have proved frustrating, with Covid disrupting the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons and injury hitting his attempts to grab a regular spot in the first team in 2021-22.

Lewis made his debut for the Club in the 2020/21 Season before featuring several times over the following campaign, and also started in their FA Cup trip to AFC Wimbledon last season. 

He also went out on loan in September 2022, joining Tadcaster Albion in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division until October 2022.

Hey made 26 appearances for Guiseley while in the National League North, 5 in the 2020-21 Campaign, followed by 21 in the 2021-22 Season, Lewis also scored two goals in that season, the winner in a 1-0 victory while away at Chester, and one against Darlington in a 5-1 away defeat. 

Lewis is available for selection in tomorrow’s away game vs FC United of Manchester! Stay tuned to our socials for the latest team news!
