Lee Matthew Baddeley (born 12 July, 1974 in Cardiff) is a Welsh former professional footballer.


Baddeley began his career at his hometown club Cardiff City as a YTS trainee, making his debut on the opening day of the 1991-92 season when he replaced Gareth Abraham against Lincoln City. He eventually managed to establish himself in the side during the 1993-94 season and scored his only goal for the Bluebirds against Brighton in November 1994. After again falling down the pecking order at Ninian Park he decided to leave the club and moved to Exeter City in February 1997. However his time at the club was blighted by a persistent hamstring injury which meant he struggled to retain fitness. He was eventually forced to retire from injury in 1999 and despite an attempted comeback in 2000[1] he eventually finished his career after a spell at Merthyr Tydfil.

After football

Following his retirement, Baddeley took a job as a trainee greenkeeper at a golf course in Exeter and obtained a National Diploma in leisure studies.[2]
