- Francis Lee Biography
Francis Henry "Franny" Lee (born 29 April 1944 in Westhoughton, Lancashire) is a former professional footballer, who played in the 1960s and 1970s, including 27 appearances for the England national team. Lee played for Bolton Wanderers, Manchester City and Derby County. A stocky forward, he won League Championship medals with both Manchester City and Derby, and scored more than 200 goals in his career. In 2010, he was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.He holds the English record for the greatest number of penalties scored in a season, a feat which earned him the nickname Lee Won Pen, and sometimes led to accusations of diving. One such accusation, from Leeds United's Norman Hunter, led to an on-pitch fight, which The Observer later named as sport's most spectacular dismissal.After retiring from football, Lee entered business, the success of his paper recycling business (in fact exclusively involved in toilet rolls) F.H. Lee Ltd making him a millionaire. In 1994 he became the major shareholder and chairman of his former club Manchester City, but stepped down four years later.
