Reg Lewis (March 7, 1920 - ??? 1997) was an English footballer.

Born in Bilston, Staffordshire, Lewis spent his entire career at Arsenal. He joined the club as a schoolboy in 1935, and scored on his debut against Everton on January 1, 1938. Although the early years of his career were disrupted by the Second World War, he clearly shone as a natural goalscorer and won unofficial wartime trophies with the club. After the cessation of hostilities, he became a regular in the first team and was the club's top scorer in 1946-47. The following season he won the Division One title, and in 1950 he scored both goals in Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup final.

However, Lewis was constantly afflicted with injuries; after playing only 23 times between 1950 and 1953, he retired from the game at the early age of 33. His 118 goals in 176 matches makes him the club's eleventh top goalscorer, as of September 14, 2005.

After retiring, Lewis first ran a pub, then worked in insurance. He died in 1997.
