City on Blackshaw:

Lewis Blackshaw signed a two year scholarship in July 2015 and will be looking to claim the left back berth as his own during the 2015/16 season.

Possessing fine technique and a great left foot, Lewis excels in getting up and down the line to support his teammates in attack while immediately switching his attentions to defensive duties when necessary.

Jason Wilcox spotted the defender’s potential while he was still part of Gareth Taylor’s u16 side, and Lewis made two starts and a further substitute appearance during the latter stages of the u18 league campaign during 2014/15.

He will be hoping that bodes well for his chances of a regular slot during his first year full time at City Football Academy.
