When Alex Lewington linked up with Saracens in the summer of 2018 he arrived with a reputation as an electric winger and superb finisher, and he has certainly lived up to that during his time at StoneX Stadium.

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.
A former Notts County FC Academy defender, Lewington began his career at Leicester Tigers, making several appearances in the LV= Cup. He moved on to his hometown club Nottingham and his success with the Championship outfit led to London Irish purchasing his signature in 2013.
The ex-England Saxon appeared over 100 times for Irish and on his return from injury in the 2016/17 campaign he scored 10 tries in as many games before dotting down twice in the Championship play-off final as the Madejski outfit returned to the top flight.
In his debut season at Saracens Lewington notched 11 tries in 28 matches, and he has now made over 60 appearances for the club with a highly impressive try-scoring record.
His leadership has been a major factor during the season in the Championship, becoming a senior figure in the squad as his influence continues to grow.
