Goalkeeper Richard Lee set to hang up his gloves

2 January 2015

Brentford goalkeeper Richard Lee will retire at the end of the season.

The 32-year-old, who has made 87 appearances for the Bees since joining from Watford in 2010, announced the decision on his blog.

He said: "I made this decision in September, I told the staff at Brentford and they've been superb, the manager in particular has been very supportive.

"I am retiring because I have peaked and don't have the confidence that I can now surpass that peak.

"As a result, football to me now equates to frustration and often pain.

"I do feel blessed to have had so many fantastic memories to take away from the game that will live with me forever.

"Throw in the odd penalty save and all in all you have a reasonable career that spanned 15 years as a professional."
