I’m sure my new Grandson Ethan will pick which team he supports but I couldn’t help but steer him in the right direction 😂👏🏼 pic.twitter.com/8jrrakc382

Lewin was the physio for the men’s team from 1986 until 2008, when he moved to become England’s lead physio, a role he held until 2016. In 2017, he worked with Arsenal Women as the physio on a part-time basis until 2018.
Gary is a very well known figure at the club having also briefly been a player in the early 1980s before having to retire through injury. Arsenal Women have suffered a number of soft tissue injuries in the last two seasons and Lewin is considered as something of an expert in the area. He is also very well known to and popular with the current Arsenal Women squad.
