FORMER Copland School star Terrell Lewis signed his first professional contract last week when he was snapped up by League Two side Chesterfield,.

Right-winger Lewis, from Church Road in Harlesden, played for Copland as a teenager and graduated to the West London Academy football college as a 15-year-old.

Lewis then spent three and a half years at Spartan South Midlands side Chalfont St Peter and was recommended to Chesterfield boss John Sheridan by former England coach Ted Buxton.

After impressing in a series of displays for the Spireites' reserves, the 21-year-old signed a contract until the end of the season last Thursday.

"It was a proud day for me, and the manager has told me he definitely wants to get me involved," said Lewis. "I'm not going all the way up there just to sit on the bench.

"I played a game against Sheffield FC in the summer, and got invited back two weeks ago to play a friendly against Nottingham Forest. We lost 4-1, but I set up our goal and I thought I did ok.

"I think I've got the quality to go to the Premier League eventually, I'd love to get there and I think I'm capable of playing at the top level.
