Supporters’ Trust member Paul Whiteside looks back at Mark Lee’s time at the Club.
Mark Lee signed for Salford from his home town club St. Helens at the end of the 80s. He spent ten years with Salford until the 2000 season. Mark was equally at home playing hooker or scrum half. With his crafty kicking game he soon became a very popular player with the Salford supporters. Mark played hooker in Salford’s brave defeat to Widnes in the 1990 Lancashire Cup Final and was scrum half on that epic day at The Willows on the 11th February 1996 when Salford ended Wigan’s nine year domination of the Challenge Cup 26-16.
Who could forget the mid 90s! Winning the first division two seasons running; premiership trophy wins at Old Trafford; thrilling Challenge Cup runs to two semi-finals; that wonderful Lee chip kick through for Nathan McAvoy to snatch a last minute win at Huddersfield. Mark was also a master at the drop goal – His two efforts over Australian side Adelaide Rams led to a famous World Club Challenge win in 1997. A man who served Salford RLFC with so much pride and became one of our very own.
