About Richard

October 5, 1982

Place of Birth:



  • Watford

Everyone likes a challenge – but goalkeeper Richard Lee seems to love them! Since his Hornets' debut in March 2003, his experience as a professional footballer has been far from mundane, countless injuries, penalty heroics, captain of two clubs, mistakes and match winning performances culminate in what has been a pretty eventful career so far!

A former Watford Academy scholar, Richard trained with the Hertfordshire club from the age of 10, progressing through the ranks to become a mainstay of Watford’s matchday squad, in the summer of 2010 he left the Hornets to joins the Bees of Brentford for whom he currently represents.

The 2011/12 season will likely go down in the memory as the most memorable one to date and one for which he has written a book titled 'Graduation' ( which included success in 4 penalty shootouts, a Wembley final, experimentation with hypnotherapy, injuries and plenty of drama to boot!

Richard is far from your 'average' footballer and has several business interest, most famously appearing on Dragons den for his head wear business 'Dr Cap' ( and a further business dedicated to his passion - Goalkeeping, for which he created the concept of GK Icon (

Q. Hey Richard, firstly don't hate me because I'm a Reading Fan! I have a 15 year old brother who is a goalkeeper and he played in a youth cup final last week, the game went to penalties and he missed the last one meaning his team lost. He's gutted and was really upset. Is there any particular way we can lift him? Thanks

Sorry to hear that but also delighted to hear that.  Reason I say that is because it's when we come up against some form of adversity that we are able to grow as people and improve ourselves.

  It is a shame that they lost their final...
