Newly-promoted Newark Town have been boosted by the return of club captain and talisman Lewis Chambers.

The 27-year-old played a crucial role in the club’s successful promotion campaign last season, scoring 47 goals and posting 17 assists, and is seen as a crucial building block for Newark moving forward.

“I love the club and the people behind the scenes give a lot to me in terms of faith and loyalty,” he said.

“I will always do what I can to give it back.

“A massive thing for me has always been the club’s ambition.

“Although I’ve always had higher offers at bigger teams, we are building something big, with our pitch and facilities, players coming in and it is something I wanted to be a part of by staying at the club.

“I want to drive the town as high as I possibly can, make history, build something to remember in years to come.”

Chambers, who supports Manchester United, has previously played for a number of clubs including Mansfield Town and Lincoln United.

It can be of no surprise that other clubs have had Chambers — nicknamed Chambo — on their radar.

The captain, who has been described by his club as a goal machine, is sitting on 89 goals in only 75 games and has his sights set on the club record.

“Personally I have landmarks and records I want to achieve and hopefully another promotion as well,” he said.

Despite acknowledging the impact the exodus of players — mainly to step five — has had on the club, Chambers remains upbeat.

“Although we have lost a majority of players from last season I feel like we are going to be stronger and ready for the challenge,” he said.

Chambers is also optimistic when it comes to the managerial direction of the club, understanding that it will bring in a different dynamic having two managers in Luke Parsons and Nick Anderson, who have replaced last season’s manager Nathan Arnold.

Parsons said: “It is fantastic to have a captain who wears his heart on his sleeve and gives everything on the pitch.

“He is one of the most loyal guys I’ve met in football.”
