Walsall player 181. Lewis Campbell


Lewis Campbell (born April 1864; date of death unknown) was a Scottish footballer. He was pacey and difficult to defend against. Campbell played for Dumbarton, Helensburgh, Glasgow United, and Hibernian, before moving to England to play for Aston Villa. At Villa he earned an FA Cup runner-up medal in 1892 as he was unable to prevent West Bromwich Albion romping to victory 3–0 at The Oval. In August 1893, he joined Port Vale. He claimed 13 goals in 27 Second Division in the 1893–94 season, and became the first “Valiant” to score a hat-trick (he actually scored four goals) in the Football League in a 5–0 win over Walsall Town Swifts on 9 September. However he left the Athletic Ground in 1894 because his wife did not like the Potteries area. He moved on to Walsall Town Swifts and then Burton Swifts.
