All at Slough Town Football Club are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of our former first team coach, Mickey Lewis following a short battle with cancer.
Mickey had a long association with Oxford United, originally joining them following spells at West Bromwich Albion and Derby County. He played 351 games for the club before being appointed caretaker manager.
After a spell at Oxford City, he was invited by then Rebels manager Eddie Denton to join the coaching team at Slough Town in January 2004, and he helped the club achieve a fourth-place finish in Isthmian League Division One South, just four points behind champions Lewes.
The following season was a remarkable one for the Rebels, with three memorable cup runs – to the FA Cup Second Round, FA Trophy Fifth Round and the final of the Isthmian League Cup, in which Slough defeated Hampton & Richmond Borough to win the trophy for a third time.
Mickey remained at Slough until July 2005, before being named assistant manager at Doncaster Rovers.
We extend our condolences to Mickey’s family and friends.
