Welcome to Barnet, Lee Vaughan!

2 March 2021

The Bees are pleased to welcome full back Lee Vaughan to The Hive London, as he joins on a permanent transfer from National League North side AFC Telford.

The right-back makes the move to North London having previously featured for Manager Tim Flowers at Solihull Moors, where he made 35 appearances. 

The 34-year-old links up with Flowers again, with the Bees looking to bolster their defensive options going into the remainder of the 2020/21 campaign. With Vaughan having experience under Flowers and The National League, the move signals a good fit for the Bees. 

Vaughan started his career as a youth product of Birmingham City before moving to Portsmouth as an academy player. In his senior career, he has represented the likes of Kidderminster Harriers, Cheltenham Town and Solihull Moors, making 228 National League appearances in his career.

The right-back has finished second in The National League on two occasions and this move appears to be an astute bit of business from Tim Flowers, who will be pleased to have another player he knows well amongst his ranks. 

As well as making plenty of appearances at this level, Vaughan also has some EFL experience under his belt having made 32 League Two appearances for Cheltenham Town in the 2014/15 season. 

Speaking on the arrival of Vaughan, Tim Flowers said: 

"I am delighted to link up with Lee again, he is a player that I know well, he is a player that I trust and most importantly he adds quality to our squad. Lee is aggressive on the pitch, he shows plenty of commitment to the cause and it represents a good move for him and the Club. His on-field qualities are exactly what I am looking for and his career proves he knows how to play well on a consistent basis in the division, he's been a runner up twice and was an integral part of my Solihull team.

"It is a good move back to the league for him and obviously the deal is to the end of the season, so he joins with a point to prove. I'm really happy to have Lee in and I am sure our supporters will like what he brings to the table both on and off the pitch."

Lee will wear the number 30 shirt during his time with the Bees and will be available for selection from next Tuesday's home fixture with Wrexham AFC. 

The Club would like to wish a warm welcome to Lee and wish him every success for his time at The Hive London.
