Lee Peacock

A versatile player who could operate in midfield or as a striker, Lee made more than 500 first team appearances and was transferred for fees in excess of £1m during 20 years in the game.

Although born in Paisley, Scotland, Lee spent his entire career south of the border after coming through the youth set up at Carlisle United.

During his first senior campaign at Brunton Park he helped the side win the Division Three title and reach the Football League Trophy final.

Although they suffered relegation the following season, they were back in Division Two a year later, again reaching the Football League Trophy, but this time lifting the trophy with a penalty shootout success over Colchester United at Wembley.

A £75,000 move to Mansfield Town followed and Lee hit 29 goals in 90 games for the Field Mill club. He also became the first player to take home one of the new Fluo Flare fluorescent balls after their introduction, his reward for scoring a hat-trick against Barnet in November 1998.

His form attracted the attentions of bigger clubs and Lee joined Manchester City in a £500,000 deal in 1999. After just ten months at Maine Road he was on the move again, joining Bristol City for £600,000. 

His time at Ashton Gate was hugely successful as he scored more than 60 goals in over 150 games, helping the Robins reach the play-off final and win the 2003 Football League Trophy, when he scored one of the goals in a 2-0 final win over first club Carlisle United.

Lee joined Sheffield Wednesday in 2004 and helped the club win promotion to the Championship with a 2004/05 play-off victory.

His next club was Swindon Town, where despite suffering a number of series injuries, he was named the PFA’s Fans’ Player of the Year for League Two in 2007.

His last league club was Grimsby Town before he ended his career with spells at Havant & Waterlooville and Eastleigh, where he later became head of youth and development.  

Lee Matthews was always a big character in the Ashton Gate dressing room. He played the game with a smile on his face and always had plenty to say for himself! I’m delighted to see him being so successful in his second career, as an agent. Signing to SMI was an obvious choice for me and one I certainly never regretted for a moment.
