UPDATED 03:08 16th July 2012

One of many summer signings made by former manager Paul Buckle, left back Lee began his career with Queens Park Rangers and graduated through the ranks at Loftus Road, earning his first professional contract in July 2008.

He made his first team debut on 24th April 2010, against Barnsley, at Oakwell.

During his time with QPR Lee also enjoyed loan spells with Salisbury City and Hayes & Yeading.

Lee made his Rovers league debut on the opening day of the 2011/12 season and scored his first goal for the club in the 4-1 defeat at Crawley on 3rd September 2011.

Although he is a recognised full back, former manager Mark McGhee played him on the left of midfield on a number of occasions after his appointment.

However the appointment of John Ward as manager saw Lee move back to play in his favoured position and the tough tackling defender went on to enjoy a successful spell in the second half of the 2012/13 campaign.

Having won international honours with the England 'C' team in 2014/15, Lee scored one of the penalties in the shootout against Grimsby Town in last season’s Promotion Play Off Final.

Last season he was the only ever present in the side and appeared in every minute of every game. He will always be remembered as the player who scored the goal that clinched promotion to League One, his 92nd minute goal saw Rovers beat Dagenham & Redbridge and pip Accrington Stanley to third place.
