Club career


Early career

Born in Alvaston, Derby, Williamson started his career at Mansfield Town, making 165 appearances in his stay at Field Mill. He then moved to Northampton Town early in the 2004–05 season where he quickly established himself as an automatic choice in the first team. He scored two goals in his season at Northampton, against Torquay in the Football League Trophy[1] and Southampton in the FA Cup.[2]

Lee joined Rotherham United in the summer of 2005, and once again established himself in first team and as one of the best midfield players in the division.


He completed a move to Watford along with teammate Will Hoskins for a combined fee of £1.2 million on 5 January 2007. On 31 January 2007 he played his first Premier League match for Watford against Manchester United.[3]

On 9 and 11 November Watford played Swansea City, one fixture for the league and the other being thought for a place in the quarter final of the Carling Cup, Watford scored two goals from both of the games both of these came from Lee Williamson. He followed this up less than two weeks later with another goal making his total for the season 3 goals, with his third against Queens Park Rangers. On 26 March 2009 he signed a loan deal with Preston North End until the end of the 2008–09 season.[4] He scored his first Preston goal on 18 April 2009 against Cardiff City which rounded off a 6–0 win at Deepdale.[5]

Sheffield United

Williamson signed for Sheffield United for an undisclosed fee during the 2009 close season believed to be around £500,000.[6] Having suffered a back injury in pre-season[7] Williamson found himself sidelined until the end of October and had to wait until December to score his début goal for the club against Crystal Palace.[8]

International career

On 23 May 2008, Williamson was included in a 28-man squad to play for Jamaica.[9]
