Growing up a Chelsea fan, Lawrence progressed through the youth ranks at Stamford Bridge, enjoying a breakout season in 2019/20 when he played 30 games and netted five goals in the development squad. A further 19 games and four goals came the following season, earning him a loan move to League One last season.

Though AFC Wimbledon struggled last season, going on a five-month win-less run as they were relegated to League Two, Lawence impressed playing in all position across the defence, but most notably at full-back.

He becomes the second full-back in Dons' squad to have also played for AFC Wimbledon, with Tennai Watson having also played for them in 2018/19.
