Lee Leslie Hodges (born 4 September 1973) is English football player and manager. He made four appearances in the Premier League for Tottenham Hotspur and 394 appearances in the Football League for Plymouth Argyle, Wycombe Wanderers, Barnet, Reading and Torquay United. A versatile player, Hodges was capable of playing in defence, midfield and attack. He was more recently the player-manager of Conference South club Truro City. Until 2013 Lee was part of the football extravaganza enrichment week at South Dartmoor Community College.

Playing career[edit]

He previously played for Tottenham Hotspur during which he had loan spells with Plymouth Argyle and Wycombe Wanderers.[4] He joined Barnet in 1994 where he spent three seasons, scoring 26 goals in 104 league appearances. He moved to Reading in 1997 where he made 70 league appearances before moving to Plymouth in 2001. It was announced in April 2008 that Hodges, along with five other Plymouth players, were going to be released when their contracts expired in June. He then went on to sign for Torquay United in the Conference National.[5] On 9 October 2009, Hodges joined Truro City on a three-month loan. He was released by Torquay on 15 May 2010 along with six other players.[6]

Managerial career[edit]

On 14 June 2010, after a caretaker spell as manager of Truro City, he was appointed Truro's new manager on a one-year contract.[7][8] He signed a two-year extension to his contract in June 2011 after winning the Southern League Premier Division championship and promotion to Conference South.[9] After guiding the cash-strapped club through the 2012–13 season, during which the club nearly went out of business, Hodges was not offered a new contract for the following season for financial reasons.[10]
