Lewis Wilson – driveJohnson’s Sponsorship

driveJohnson’s provides driving lessons in Northampton as well as many other towns and cities across the south of England. However, Lewis Wilson was also a pupil who learnt to drive with us. His skills as a footballer reflected in his ability to drive as he only took 15 hours to teach from beginning to end. He passed with ZERO minor faults as well as the examiner saying “It was the best drive he had experienced on a driving test within the last few years”.


Anthony Johnson the owner said “I taught Lewis to drive and he was a natural. Lewis also graced my Sunday Football team for around 6-8 appearances last season. He was playing football for Newport Pagnell Town at the time, but from what he was saying he wasn’t getting the minutes on the pitch. I’ve played at a professional level myself for a few years so I know the step up into Mens football is tough; physically and mentally – so getting him involved in my Sunday team helped everyone. He was comfortably our best player and he enjoyed skinning right backs week in week out. He must have got man of the match at least 70% of the time he was with us. I think the Sunday football really boosted his confidence as he started featuring for the Newport Pagnell first team regularly, Northampton then snapped him up. The other thing I would like to say about this man is that he doesn’t have a drop of arrogance in him, he’s very likeable and I wish him all the best in his football career. driveJohnson’s looks forwards to many future seasons of sponsoring ‘Lewis Wilson’.”
