Lee Boylan Player Profile
Debut: Morecambe (H, 1-1), 23/04/2001
A proven goalscorer at Blue Square Premier level, Stevenage Borough manager Graham Westley moved to snap up Lee Boylan from promotion rivals Cambridge United during the summer of 2008 for an undisclosed fee. Boylan has amassed a long and distinguished track career of scoring goals in the top flight of non-league football; a far cry from when he left Stevenage Borough in 2001 with just a single, fruitless appearance to his name.
In the interim seven years, he went away to Canvey Island and scored a dazzling 136 goals in 178 appearances before going onto Grays Athletic and then Cambridge. His addition to the Boro’ squad meant that the Hertfordshire side had an embarrassment of riches up front ahead of the 2008/9 season, and giving Graham Westley hope that he could call upon Boylan to bag a goal.
While Steve Morison scored the majority of Boro’s goals, Boylan kept chipping in with valuable goals in Boro’s title-winning campaign in 2009/10. Boylan was released halfway through the 2010/1 season, having found first team opportunities in the Football League at a premium.
Stats do not include expunged Chester City fixtures in 2009/10.
