Date of Birth: 29/11/2003

It was reported in August 2018 that Norwich City youngster Lewis Shipley had been away training with England's Under-15s and Under-16s. He is from Wisbech. He played for Norwich's Under-18s in a July 2019 friendly against Colchester.

9th August 2020 Norwich announced that six Academy youngsters, including Shipley, had signed with the Club as first-year scholars with the Canaries. He is described as a defender.

Highly rated, Lewis signed his first professional contract with Norwich on 27th December 2020. He had become an integral part to City's Under-18s side, starting eight of the twelve games so far in all competitions this season, playing 90 minutes in all but one fixture. Shipley also featured for all 90 minutes in the young Canaries 4-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in the third round of the FA Youth Cup.

Shipley, a self-confessed Norwich fan, described it as a lifetime aspiration achieved, crediting one academy coach in particular for his help in the defender's development. He said "It feels incredible, I've been at the club since I was seven-years-old and it's just a dream come true for any Norwich fan. To be in this situation, it's a true honour. Greg Crane [Under-18s coach] has been with me since I was eight, to help me through this, he deserves as much credit as anyone. He helped me get to where I am today."
