He joined Huddersfield Town as head physiotherapist in June 2003 ending his 18 year professional football playing career to link up with new manager Peter Jackson. Lee quickly introduced new and innovative regimes which reduced the injury list in the first year by half. He established the Treatment Room private practice in January 2007, which was run in conjunction with Huddersfield Town FC.
