Adam Lewis made a dream start to life on loan at Plymouth Argyle after signing from Liverpool until the end of the 2020/21 campaign, receiving praise from his gaffer afterwards (Plymouth Herald).
The young full-back came off the bench in Saturday’s game against Crewe but was handed a start by Ryan Lowe last night.
He didn’t disappoint his new manager and scored the first goal as Plymouth beat Sunderland 2-1 at the Stadium of Light.
Lewis had spent the first half of 2020/21 on loan in France with Amiens. He started six games but struggled for form and dropped out of the squad completely.
The 21-year-old look to become a regular in the team for the Pilgrims and Lowe was impressed with his performance last night.
He told the Plymouth Herald: “Credit where credit is due, Adam has only been with us a short while but he has listened and he’s learning every day.
“He has come from a football club that plays a different brand and a different way. We play with wing-backs and he has gone right in there.
“He knows we want our wing-backs getting into the box to score goals because there are always chances there.
“I’m pleased for him to get his goal. He’s a good kid, good footballer and he will keep growing with us.”
TBR View: Challenge presenting itself to Lewis
There are few players ahead of the Liverpool youngster at Anfield and the Plymouth move looks a good one.
Lowe is a manager with a reputation of blooding youngsters and that can only bode well for the talented defender.
Lewis didn’t have a great time of things in the French second-tier but he was rarely used.
A Liverpool chance does look to be a long way off for Lewis.
Andy Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas are both ahead of him at the moment and it remains to be seen what the future holds.
He has penned a new long-term deal with the club, however, and that must count for something.
All he can do, however, is continue playing well out on loan and hope that Jurgen Klopp sees something in him.
