|MARTYN LEE JOINS MAIDENHEAD
(Saturday 26th July 2003)
Former Wanderers' midfielder Martyn Lee has joined Ryman League side Maidenhead United after deciding to turn his back on the full-time game. The 22 year old left Wycombe at the end of the 2002/3 campaign as part of Lawrie Sanchez's squad cutting exercise but subsequent trials with Southend United and Viking Stavanger in Norway didn't work out and the ex-Wanderers Youth Teamer has decided to go part-time. Lee told the Maidenhead Advertiser "I could have joined a pro club and found myself in the same situation in a few years time. So Iíve decided to go part-time, go to college and learn a trade."
Lee also admitted that his latter days at Wycombe were not the best of fun, saying "For the past year and a half I havenít enjoyed my football at Wycombe. I got dispirited. I always thought I was in line for a deal and then I was the last one to be told I was going."
United boss John Dreyer jumped at the chance of signing Lee, adding "Iím absolutely delighted. Quality left-footers are like gold dust. As Martyn quite rightly said, heís a wanted man and he had the opportunity to join several conference clubs. But heís a bright lad and because of his situation it was right for him to come to Maidenhead. He just wants to come here and enjoy his football."
Other ex-Wanderers players on the move recently include Keith Scott who has moved to Conference side Dagenham and Redbridge and Jason Cousins who has been released by Aldershot Town after one season and since joined a wealth of other ex-Chairboys at Windsor and Eton.
