Lee makes move to Weston-super-Mare
Roger Lee, the Bermuda defender, has joined the growing number of local players plying their trade in the lower echelons of English football.
Lee completed a move to Weston-super-Mare, the Vanarama Conference South side, yesterday just days after Freddy Hall, the Bermuda goalkeeper, signed for Conference Premier outfit Telford United on a three-month contract.
Both players are clients of Dan Chapman, an FA-licensed agent, who played a pivotal role in Reggie Lambe’s return to England, where he is now playing for Mansfield Town in Sky Bet League Two.
Chapman also represents Rai Simons, of Ilkeston Town in the Evo-Stik League Northern Premier, whom Lee played a reserve-team game for last season, and Jonté Smith, who plays for Kemi Kings in the Finnish Kakkonen North League.
Another player to have joined Chapman’s stable is goalkeeper Jahquil Hill, who represented Bermuda at the CFU Under-20 World Cup qualifiers in the Dominican Republic this summer.
Hill is hoping to win a deal with League One side Barnsley, having previously trained with Mansfield as a development player.
A former Robin Hood and Somerset Eagles player, Lee made his Bermuda debut aged just 17 at the 2008 Digicel Cup in the Cayman Islands.
Weston-super-Mare, who are 20th in the Conference South table, are away to Flackwell Heath in the FA Cup third qualifying round tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Hall is line to make his debut for basement dwellers Telford away to Lincoln City tomorrow, while Lambe will be hoping to start in Mansfield’s game away to Portsmouth.
