Alan Lewer: Tale of An English and Welsh League Journeyman

  • by
Alan Lewer

In a career spanning decades, Alan Lewer has had a full footballing experience. His managerial roles have included stints at Nuneaton, Forrest Green, Weymouth, Histon, and Southport. Alan has also served as a scout and interim manager at Bangor City in the Welsh Premier League. It is, therefore, safe to say that the 65-year-old English manager has seen it all.

Alan Lewer – Profile, history, games

Alan’s career was majorly within the English League system, where he managed teams in the English 6th and 5th divisions. Alan is credited for a more than satisfactory performance in clubs that he stayed the distance. This was never always the case. In 2007, Alan’s first stint at Southport ended abruptly with a resignation after three games. However, at Nuneaton, Alan was able to keep the team in the top-three for most of the season with a completely new team.

This was the experience that Alan Lewer brought into his co-managerial role at Bangor City in 2018, following the sudden resignation of Craig Harrison. Together with Steven Vaughan Jnr and Luke Purcell, they led the team to a 2nd position finish at the Huws Gray Alliance. Sadly, shortly after the departure of Steven Vaughan Jnr to Maltese Premier League club, Mosta, Alan Lewer and Bangor City parted ways.

What’s next for Alan Lewer?

Currently a free agent, Alan Lewer has built a solid reputation as an experienced non-league manager, winning 16% of his matches and drawing 29%. All may not have loved his favoured defensive based, possession-styled play. But when you manage the kind of squads that Alan has, you are forced to do whatever you can to grind out a result.
