Lee James Stephen Hodson (born 2 October 1991 in Watford)[2] is a Northern Irish professional footballer, currently playing for Football League Championship team Watford F.C. as a right back. He made his first team debut as a substitute in May 2009 against Derby County, before playing in the majority of Watford's games in the 2009–10 season, and being awarded a three year professional contract. Hodson has also represented Northern Ireland at youth, under-19 and under-21 levels.


Club career

Hodson began a two year scholarship with Watford in summer 2008, but had already played for the under-18 side in the 2007–08 season.[3] In total he made 26 appearances for the under 18s, making him the joint second-highest appearance maker that season.[3] He also started nine times for the reserves.[4]

Hodson made the first team substitute bench for the first time on 3 May 2009 for the final game of the 2008–09 season, against Derby County at Vicarage Road. He went on to make his debut as a 65th minute substitute for Arsenal loanee Gavin Hoyte, with Watford going on to win 3–1.[5]

Following two separate injuries to club captain Jay DeMerit early in the 2009–10 season, Adrian Mariappa moved to central defence, and Hodson started to play regularly in the Championship at right back.[6] Hodson played in every Watford first team game in September and October 2009, and by November he had earned himself a three year professional contract with the club.[7]

International career

Hodson has represented Northern Ireland at youth and under-19 levels, and in 2009, aged 17, Hodson up to the under-21 team, in a side captained by Hodson's Watford team-mate Craig Cathcart.[8][9]
