Career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Rochester, who is of Danish-English parentage and has roots in Jamaica, started his career in the youth department of Velo. When he was 15, after playing for Team Lolland, he was scouted by HB Køge and eventually joined their football academy.[1]

HB Køge[edit]

On April 9, 2010, Rochester made his debut in the Danish 1st Division in a match against Hobro IK, thereby breaking the record of being the youngest player to represent HB Køge, at 16 years old.[2]

On June 27, 2011, Rochester signed a new three-year deal to keep him in Køge until 2015[3]

Lyngby BK[edit]

On 31 January 2014 Rochester signed a contract with Lyngby Boldklub. But in the summer of 2015, he had his contract canceled, because he was disappointed with the lack of games he has played.[4]

FC Vestsjælland[edit]

On September 22, 2015, Rochester signed a contract with FC Vestsjælland. He got his debut for the club, September 23, 2015, in the Danish Cup third round against F.C. Copenhagen. On October 4, he scored his first goal for FCV in a league game against FC Helsingør. The game ended 3-0, and was the first win for FC Vestsjælland, in the 2015-16 season.

Return to HB Køge[edit]

Following FC Vestsjælland's bankruptcy on 30 November 2015 Rochester was without a club. He signed a contract with his former club HB Køge on 13 February 2016.

Personal life[edit]

Lee's big brother Marc also plays for HB Køge.
