Zeiko Lewis scoops Charleston Battery MVP award

Zeiko Lewis has been voted as Charleston Battery’s most valuable player for the 2021 season

Zeiko Lewis has been named Charleston Battery’s most valuable player for the 2021 season.

The Bermuda forward was voted by his team’s fans for the coveted Nigel Cooper Most Valuable Player Award.

“Thank you to everyone who voted,” Lewis said. “Much appreciated. It’s an honour and a privilege to be given the award.

“It’s been a long season with many ups and downs, but I will continue to build and push even harder to be better moving forward. The work continues.”

Lewis scored five goals in 22 appearances in his third season with Charleston in the USL Championship during the 2021 campaign.

The 27-year-old also had ten assists, the fourth highest in the league.

Forward Claudio Repetto, midfielders Robbie Crawford and Angelo Kelly, defender Leland Archer and goalkeeper Joe Kuzminsky were the others in contention for the MVP award.

Lewis was also nominated for the offensive player award along with fellow forwards Nicque Daley and Repetto.

Striker Repetto, who netted a team-high nine goals, ultimately topped the polls for the award.

The Italian was also voted as the 2021 Betsy McAdams Newcomer of the Year which capped a successful debut season in professional football.

Kuzminsky was voted as the 2021 Derek Revord Defensive Player of the Year.

The goalkeeper tallied 77 saves and kept four clean sheets in 27 appearances in his fifth season with the club, who failed to reach the post-season play-offs having finished sixth in the eight-team Atlantic Division during the regular campaign.
