Lee Kilday (born 4 February 1992)[1] is a Scottish professional footballer who plays for Greenock Morton, as a defender.

Career[edit]

Kilday made his senior debut for Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Premier League on 15 January 2011, in a 0–4 defeat away at Rangers.[2] The performance of Kilday and other young players in that match, including Michael Devlin who also made his debut, was praised by manager Billy Reid.[3]

In March 2012, Kilday signed a contract with Hamilton which lasts until May 2014.[4] In May 2012, Kilday announced his intention to become a first-team regular at Hamilton during the forthcoming 2012–13 season.[5]

He joined Stenhousemuir on loan in October 2012.[6]

Kilday was released by Hamilton in May 2014.[7] In June 2014, Kilday signed for Greenock Morton.[8] Kilday was offered a one-year contract extension after playing all 36 league games for Morton.[9]

Following another successful season, Kilday signed a two-year deal with Morton,[10] rejecting a similar deal to move back to Hamilton Accies.[11] He became Morton's club captain at the age of 24.[12]
