Experienced defender Lewis Stevenson has today signed for Raith Rovers FC on a 2 year contract, after bringing his time at Hibernian FC to an end.

It’s a return to his roots for 36 year old Lewis, having attended Balwearie High School over 20 years ago, and supporting the Rovers from a young age in the 1990s.

Lewis has spent his entire footballing life at Easter Road from the age of 14 as an apprentice, making his competitive debut for The Hibees in 2005 and making over 600 appearances for the capital club in all competitions as he featured regularly under 13 permanent managers of Hibs.

Principally a left fullback, Lewis can also operate in midfield roles, and he will bring a huge range of experience (mainly from the SPFL Premiership, but also from his time representing Scotland at under 19 and under 21 levels).

Lewis also won a full Scotland cap in May 2018, playing for the national side in a match versus Peru.

Speaking exclusively to www.raithrovers.net, Lewis said:

“I’m delighted to finally be here. I was an avid armchair fan last season, everyone at the club has done so well and hopefully we can kick on again next season”

Rovers manager Ian Murray was delighted to capture Lewis’s signature, saying:

“Lewis is obviously an excellent signing for us and a player I know well.
He will bring so much experience and his attitude has set an example to others over his career.
He can play in a couple of positions and has so much quality, I really look forward to working with him again and I’m sure being a local guy the supporters will agree it’s a great signing”
