STRIKER LEE AIMS TO KEEP PLAY­ING

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP FINAL - By John Hodg­son

FOR­MER Ire­land striker Alan Lee has vowed to keep play­ing de­spite be­ing re­leased by Hud­der­s­field.

The 34-year-old racked up nine goals in 80 league ap­pear­ances for the Ter­ri­ers, but strug­gled to find the net this sea­son, with just two goals to his name.

The sec­ond of those came in what proved a vi­tal 2-1 win over Mid­dles­brough back in March, but af­ter beat­ing the drop Hud­der­s­field parted ways with Lee, who is adamant he still has some­thing to of­fer.

He said: “I came into this sea­son with a bit of a car­ry­over from a knee in­jury, and that had an ef­fect early on, but I’ve worked hard on my fit­ness. I’m feel­ing sharp and in good shape.

“I’m do­ing my coach­ing badges with a view to the fu­ture, but at this mo­ment, I cer­tainly feel I can still make a con­tri­bu­tion as a player.

“I would love to have stayed, but I’d back my­self to go and do a job else­where and score goals.”

NEW START: Alan Lee
