Stringer adds another to boost midfield

By Matt Lee

Chelmsford City are pleased to announce the signing of Harry Lee from Braintree Town Football Club.

The 22-year-old started his career as a Leyton Orient youngster before being promoted to the first team in October 2012. Lee could only manage being an unused substitute numerous times before making his professional debut for the O’s as a substitute against Oldham Athletic in April 2013.

Lee has Conference South experience having played for Farnborough on-loan during October and November 2013. During his time with the Yellows, Lee found the net twice during six appearances – including Farnborough’s solitary goal in the 3-1 defeat at the Melbourne Community Stadium.

The midfielder was dispatched on-loan once again in August 2015 to Conference Premier side Welling United for a month. Following a successful temporary spell with the Wings, Lee signed a permanent deal in January 2016.

Lee moved on after Welling’s relegation to the National League South, making a return to the top-flight of non-league football with Chelmsford’s Essex rivals Braintree Town.

But Lee was involved in yet another relegation as the Iron finished 22nd in the National League, meaning the Cressing Road based club made the drop into the Vanarama National League South.

The 22-year-old midfielder now joins the Clarets on a one-year deal, with Manager Rod Stringer hoping that his latest addition of the summer will aid in his Club’s push for promotion.

Everyone at the Melbourne Community Stadium welcomes Harry Lee to the Clarets.
