Former Yeovil Town striker Lee Morris is on trial with League Two side Bradford City. The 30 year old is a free agent after being released by Hereford United over the summer. He joined the Bantams for pre-season training last Thursday in an attempt to earn a contract with them.
Considering Lee initially 'retired' from football in March 2008 due to his cruciate knee ligament injury, he has not done too badly. He joined a then Conference National side Burton Albion in August 2008 on an informal basis, but went on to score 7 goals and make 30 appearances in Burton's title-winning season.
Upon their promotion into the Football League he moved on, joining Hereford United for the 2009-10 season on a one year contract, but this was a far less fruitful occasion. He made just 14 appearances for the Bulls before being sent out on loan to Mansfield Town in November 2009, where he made five appearances, scoring one goal. Another loan spell at Forest Green Rovers followed in March 2010, where he made nine appearances, scoring two goals. When the Conference National season ended a week or two before the end of the Football League season, Morris was due to return to Edgar Street, but instead the Bulls allowed him to depart by mutual consent.
Lee was of course a key member of Yeovil Town's 2006-07 season that saw them make the League One play-off final. His 40 appearances and 6 goals for the club were rudely curtailed in August 2007 when he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in a Carling Cup tie against Hereford United. With Yeovil having made all three substitutions in the game, he bravely tried to carry on, but in doing so aggravated the injury, and it was to be his last appearance in green and white colours.
