Biography

Elegant right back Marshall joined City on loan in January 2004 to assist Peter Taylor’s side to the summit of League Two and eventual promotion. He performed his role well but suffered a compound leg fracture in a challenge at Kidderminster in April 2004, an injury that ended his professional career.

Lee Keith Marshall was born in London and cut his teeth at non-league side Enfield. In March 1997 at the age of 18 he joined the professional scene, transferring to League Division 1 side Norwich City in return for a £15,000 fee. He made his debut against Bury in November 1997, by the start of the 1998/99 season Marshall was first choice right midfielder in Bruce Rioch’s Canaries side and scored his first senior goal in September 1998 against Barnsley. He spent another two seasons at Carrow Road and by March 2001, when he made his final appearance against Preston North End, he had scored 13 goals in 131 senior appearances for Norwich City.

In March 2001 Marshall transferred to a Premier League side Leicester City managed by Peter Taylor, the Foxes paying a £600,000 fee. He remained in the first team picture at Leicester in the 2001/02 season after Dave Bassett took on the manager’s role but after starting the first game of the 2002/03 season, taking his tally for Leicester to 48 appearances, he moved to Gary Megson’s West Bromwich Albion in August 2002 for a £700,000 fee. After one goal in 10 appearances for the Baggies Lee dropped out of the first team squad in October 2002 and had not played a first team match for over a year when he was loaned to the Tigers in January 2004.

By 2005 Marshall was living in Hertfordshire and coaching at local non-league side Broxbourne Borough.
