Walsall, Staffordshire born right half Jack Lewis began his football career with Brownhills Albion from where he signed for West Bromwich Albion as an amateur in 1936, spending two seasons at The Hawthorns without making a first team appearance. He signed professional forms with Crystal Palace in July 1938, making his debut in a Third Division Cup match against Reading in March 1939 and his Football League debut had to wait until after the Second World War, coming at Mansfield Town in August 1946 in a season in which he was an ever present for Palace – this after he had played 3 FA Cup ties in January that year for Palace as the FA Cup resumed its peacetime format.

In November 1949 he transferred to Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic after 5 goals in 132 matches for Palace and he stayed until July 1951, scoring once in 49 matches for The Cherries before a move to Reading in July 1951. An ever present during their 1951-52 campaign, Lewis scored a remarkable 15 goals that season, 9 from the penalty spot, and was a regular the next season before joining non league Kettering Town in the summer of 1953 after 17 goals in 81 matches for The Royals. He finished his career with a move to Worcester City in 1954, his final club before his retirement.
