Hibs legend Lewis Stevenson signs new deal

Last updated : 18 November 2021 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have followed up yesterday's good news about Paul Hanlon's contract extension, with the news that Lewis Stevenson has followed suit and signed a new deal.

The club legend, 33, has signed a new deal until the summer of 2023.

Stevenson is now the Hibees 4th all time appearance holder, having made his debut at just 17, way back in 2005, against Ayr United in a league cup tie.

Lewis is now sitting on an incredible 517 games for the Hibees, and in that time has become the only player in Hibernian history to win the Scottish Cup and Scottish League Cup with the club.

Only Pat Stanton (619), Arthur Duncan (626) and Gordon Smith (636) have more appearances in the green and white.

Speaking to the official club website, Lewis said:

“I think everyone knows how much this club means to me, so it was a no-brainer to extend my contract by another year.

“I never imagined I’d make this many appearances for Hibs, but I’m now at the stage where I’m looking at the quality of my performances rather than the quantity.

“I still feel really good, as good as I ever have, and for the games I do play, I want to do my best.

“I would love to play my whole career at Hibs, and I still think I’ve got a lot to give on and off the pitch. I want to continue having success at this football club.”

Hibs boss Jack Ross added:

“Making over 500 appearances for a football club is almost unheard of in the modern game, but that’s testament to Lewis’ hard-work, attitude, and desire.

“For any young player coming through, Lewis is the perfect role model. The way he has performed for this football club on a consistent basis is outstanding and a real testament to his passion to achieve for Hibernian.

“His fitness levels, love for the game, and drive to help this team have never wavered and he’s a real delight to work with.”


Brilliant news, Lewis is a stalwart and absolute legend of our club.

To go from a young kid to have played over 500 games is incredible.

Lewy, of course, is the only player for Hibs to have won both cups.

Even Lewis would admit, he isn't getting any younger, but his experience around the club, wiill help youngsters and he aint a bad back-up!
