Former Owl Lifts Trophy

Former Owl Lifts Trophy

Former Wednesday defender Graeme Lee will be feeling the effects of a huge hangover today after lifting the Johnstone Paints Trophy for Doncaster Rovers in Cardiff yesterday.

Not only did the centre-back lift Rovers' first major trophy at the Millennium Stadium - he netted the winner deep in to injury time in a 3-2 thriller against Bristol Rovers.

'It is one of the highlights of my career,' Lee told the Sheffield Star.

'You always dream about scoring the winner in a cup final but you never think that it is going to happen. But fortunately for me today, it did.

'We couldn't have got off to a better start but we just didn't seem to calm down after scoring twice in five minutes.

'The start put us on such a high and we didn't seem to be able to keep hold of the ball, which let them back into the game. They settled down and started to pass it.

'I think that the referee threw them a lifeline with the penalty early in the second half.

'We became more solid as a unit and gradually started to build up the pressure and we got the winner in the second period of extra-time which was brilliant.'

The former Hartlepool United man made 63 appearances for the Owls after arriving on a free transfer from Victoria Park in the summer of 2003 under the guidance of former Owls boss Chris Turner.

He was a key part in the Owls' promotion to the Championship but missed out in the thrilling 4-2 win over Hartlepool which saw Wednesday promoted via the League One play-offs.

Another reason KPS had to go. He was best Centre Half at club, and Sturrock never plyed him, and look at him now.
