Keane Lewis-Potter is an exciting young forward who established himself as a key player in Grant McCann’s team last season.

As well as turning out for Hessle Rangers, his first junior club, he played for Costello and the Hull Boys representative teams before eventually committing to City's Academy ranks at the age of 14 before signing scholarship terms towards the back end of the 2016/17 campaign.

Fast-tracked into both the Club's Under-18s and Under-23s sides, Lewis-Potter signed his first professional contract shortly after his 17th birthday before penning an extended deal when turning 18 in February 2019 - a little over a month after he had made his first senior appearance for the Tigers when coming off the bench in an FA Cup tie away at Millwall.

He was named as the Academy Player of the Year in 2018/19 after an impressive campaign that saw him score 24 goals in just 34 games for the Tigers at Under-18s and Under-23s levels - before enjoying his breakthrough campaign at first-team level in 2019/20.

The 20-year-old made a total of 22 appearance in all competitions, scoring twice. His first senior goal came in a 3-1 defeat away at Barnsley in November 2019 before becoming the first Hull-born player to score for the Tigers at the MKM Stadium in almost nine years when netting in a 3-0 victory over Birmingham City in December 2019, following in the footsteps of club legend Nick Barmby.

The youngster took his performances to another level last season, though, scoring 15 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for the Tigers as they won promotion back to the Championship at the first attempt. He was rewarded for his performances with a new contract in January 2021, extending his deal at the MKM Stadium until the summer of 2023.
