Alex Lewington

20th Sep 1991 1.83m/96kg Right Wing

The LV= Cup season of 2011/12 allowed former Nottingham High School pupil Alex Lewington to show his skills in a Leicester Tigers shirt. He scored his first senior try with an excellent solo score in the Cup win at Harlequins and then started the semi-final win over Bath.

Lewington came through the Tigers Academy and picked up Premiership 'A' League winner's medals along with Harris in 2010/11.

He has also been capped by England at U16 and U18 levels. Lewington joined London Irish from Leicester Tigers ahead of the 2013/14 season. An electric winger, his form has already seen him appear for the England Saxons against South Africa A and many are tipping him for a full cap in the future.

Scoring 10 tries in 10 games on his return from injury during the 2016/17 Championship promotion season, Lewington bagged himself a brace in the final as London Irish made an immediate return to the Premiership.

In January 2018, Saracens announced that Lewington would join Saracens at the start of the 2018-19 season.

On his arrival, Lewington had a reputation as an electric winger and a superb finisher and he lived up to that tag by scoring twice on his Sarries debut at Newcastle Falcons before adding a further six tries in his opening eight matches for the club.

He finished his debut season at Allianz Park having notched up 11 tries in 28 matches.

He went into the 2019/20 season with 25 European caps and 11 tries.
