Date of birth
Preston-born Lewis Fensome signed on scholarship terms in April 2016 after spending eight years in the club’s academy, first joining in August 2008.
Fensome will captain the youth team this season, after showing his leadership qualities on and off the pitch.
He made a fantastic start to the 2016/17 season, lining up in defence in eight of the first nine matches of the campaign before he suffered a broken leg in October, an injury which proved to be a season-ender. However, Fensome has made good progress since then and after returning to training towards the end of last season, he will be looking to pick up where he left off this term.
Fensome, who plays at centre-back or right-back, is the son of former North End player of the year and current lead professional development phase coach in the club’s academy – Andy Fensome.
