PositionDefender/Centre back

This solid and reliable defender was badly affected by in juries in the first half of last season and could only watch as Torquay plunged towards the relegation zone. Returning to action in January he worked in a professional, no-nonsense way to shore up the Gulls' defence. Lee established an effective partnership with Jimmy Aggrey in the centre of defence and when Mark Ford left for Darlington he took over as club captain. He was released by the Gulls in March 2002.
