Vaughan started as an u14 player for Raith Rovers, progressing up the age groups, and he impressed with his performances for the u19s, having stepped up at the tender age of 16. On 11th January 2012, he was given a 2½ year professional contract, making his debut for the first team as a sub in the 87th minute in the final match of the 2011-12 season, away to Greenock Morton. He made 3 league appearances in 2012 – 13 season.

The following season, Vaughan became more of a first team regular, making 26 appearances and scoring 7 goals.

Season 2015 – 16 started full of promise for the young striker but he picked up a serious injury, rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament and didn’t play another game that season. Again, he signed another year long contract, taking him through to the summer of 2017. However, on the very day – 4th January 2017 – he signed a one-year contract extension, he joined fellow SPFL Championship side, Dumbarton, on loan until the end of the 2016-17 season.

Lewis made 35 league appearances in season 2017-18 scoring 15 league goals in total (including 11 goals scored in consecutive games at the start of the season). Lewis signed an extension to his contract in January 2019, and then extended his deal at the club until June 2024 in April of 2021.

On January 11th 2023 (the 11th anniversary of Lewis signing for the Rovers), it was announced that he had been awarded a Testimonial year, starting with a testimonial match to be played before the start of the 2023-24 season.
