Lee Hamilton Extends City Contract

As the squad takes shape ahead of season 2021/22, we are delighted to confirm the defender Lee Hamilton has signed a new deal, keeping him at the Club until June 2022.

Having signed from Stranraer in summer 2020, Lee had a standout first season for City, making 20 appearances in all competitions and of course famously scoring the goal of the round with a spectacular overhead kick against Forfar in the Scottish Cup back in April, which you can enjoy again here!

Boss Gary Naysmith had this to say on Lee’s new deal when he spoke to ECFC TV earlier:

“Lee for me is an old fashioned central defender – someone who actually enjoys defending and having a good old battle with the opposition’s centre forward. He actually reminds me a lot of “Bert” when he was a player. Every time he goes out on the pitch, Lee gives you everything he has and that’s all you can ask for as a manager. He is someone who will play through the pain barrier if you ask him too, something that he has already done for me on several occasions in my short spell as manager due to the injuries that we have faced. He is exactly the type of character that I want at the club and he thoroughly deserves his new deal. I am looking forward to working with him next season as we continue to try and move the club forward.”

Defender Lee was over the moon to be extending his City career:

”I’m delighted to sign a new deal with Edinburgh City for the new season and I’m  looking forward to getting going again; hopefully we can make it a successful one!”

Great to have you on board again Lee!
