Wellmen re-sign crowd-favourite Lewis
Holywell Town have announced that striker Steve Lewis is to return to Halkyn Road after leaving Rhyl.
Lewis who is nicknamed by many in Welsh football as ‘The Beast’ originally played for Holywell back in 2015 before moving to Premier League side Bangor City.
With an impressive 13 goals in 18 appearances for the Wellmen, Lewis will be looking to improve on his goal tally for John Haseldin’s men.
Haseldin spoke not that long ago on wanting to improve on the clubs league position after committing himself to a further season at the club and the signing of a striker who is accustomed to Welsh football is a sign of that.
Lewis will come up against his former side Rhyl in a highly contested Huws Gray Alliance next season, as well as one of his former sides Caernarfon Town, who he scored for Rhyl against in the Welsh Cup.

Speaking to the official Holywell Town website, manager John Haseldin described his delight in securing Lewis for a second time at Halkyn Road.
“I am delighted that Steve has agreed to sign for us again.
He will be an important player for Holywell and obviously he’s a goalscorer and isn’t short of offers. I think to get the best out of him he’s got to be happy, and I know he will be now he’s has come back home.”
The player himself said that he wanted to remain at Holywell when Bangor came in for him but is happy that he’s been given the opportunity to wear Holywell colours once again.
“I’m delighted to have signed back to Holywell Town, and if am honest, I didn’t want to leave when Bangor City came in for me but at that time, certain circumstances made the decision for me.
It’s unfinished business and time to go and enjoy my football again for the years I’ve got left and there’s no better place to do that than at Holywell.”
