Tom Finney (current president of PNE) has a few very nice things to say about Eddie in an article up on YA.com: "[Finney] has never returned to the USA and has only crossed paths with American soccer when Eddie Lewis spent three seasons at Preston from 2002 to 2005. "I enjoyed watching him," Finney says, recognizing a fellow wide man. "He was a good player and we were very sorry to lose him. He is a pure winger, quite quick and quite skilful. We have never really replaced him."
