Roger Lee makes welcome return to Loughborough Dynamo
Brad Munn, the Loughborough Dynamo FC coach, has expressed his delight over the return of Bermuda defender Roger Lee to the club.
The English non-league club announced the 30-year-old has rejoined their ranks after a brief stint at Northern Premier League Premier Division side Mickleover.
Munn is absolutely thrilled to have Lee’s services at his disposal and views his versatility and experience as a huge asset.
“I’m really pleased to bring Roger back to the club,” Munn commented on the club’s website. “He is versatile and experienced at this level and above with international appearances in there for Bermuda as well.
”He really impressed in preseason against us and completely fits the style and mould of player we want to have at this club. Hopefully he can use some of his experience to help the younger players while improving the quality of the team and meeting his own standards.”
Lee caught Munn’s eye while on trial for former club Mickleover.
“When I was on trial with my previous club Mickleover we played a preseason match against Loughborough,” he told The Royal Gazette.
“A few times this season they have enquired about me. The opportunity presented itself again and, based on my own personal goals and aspirations, I decided to make the switch.”
The player initially joined Loughborough from Stafford Rangers in January of 2017 and went on to make 17 appearances during the 2017-18 season.
Lee left the Leicestershire-based club after joining Estonian top-flight club JK Tallinna Kalev in December of 2018, having successfully completed a two-week trial during Pro Soccer Consulting's Baltic summer showcase events four months earlier.
The former Somerset Eagles and Robin Hood player has been included in Munn’s plans for Loughborough’s home league fixture against Northern Premier League Division One Midlands rivals Carlton Town at Nanpantan Sports Ground tomorrow.
“He will go straight into the squad for this weekend’s fixture against Carlton and I’m sure we all welcome him back,” Munn confirmed.
Loughborough are tenth in the table, four places below their next opponents.
Lee has played for a raft of overseas teams throughout his career also including the Indianapolis Greyhounds, Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon Town, Gloucester City, Rugby Town, Stamford, Basford United, Corby Town and FK Jurnieks.
He made his international debut for Bermuda’s senior national team in 2008 in a Concacaf Gold Cup qualifying match against Antigua and Barbuda and has made 23 appearances to date at that level.
