Lee Marshall (born 21 January 1979 in Islington) is a retired professional footballer, who was capped by England at under-21 level. He began his career in non-league football with Enfield, before signing for Norwich City. He then made a £600,000 switch to Leicester City in March 2001.[1]

Marshall moved on to West Bromwich Albion for £700,000 in August 2002.[2] However he found his first team chances limited, only making 10 appearances, although he did have the distinction of scoring the club's first goal in the Premier League, a late consolation in a 3-1 home defeat to Leeds United.[3]

During a spell on loan at Hull City, Marshall suffered a broken leg and was forced to retire from playing in 2005.[4]
