LEAVING: LEE ROACHE TO DEPART THE CLUB


Dunstable Town are sad to announce the departure of long serving striker Lee Roache.

The 32 year old joined the Blues in 2011 and was part of the ‘Invincibles’ side of the 2012/13 season, who went unbeaten for the whole of the 42 league game campaign.

In that season, Roache scored an outrageous 54 goals, rightfully becoming a Dunstable Town legend as a result.

Manager Tony Fontenelle, who played with Roache in that team said: “I just want to place on record my gratitude and thanks to him, for the years of brilliant service he has given Dunstable Town.

“How we have left it is, he is going to speak to other clubs, but he will always be welcome here.”

Fontenelle also spoke of his admiration for the striker, as he continued: “We used to play with one up front and with him, it felt like two.

“You would put the ball up to him, he would flick it on and he would get on the end of his own knockdown and go and put the ball in the back of the net, that is how good he was.”

Roache’s former sides include Barnet, Berkhamsted and Eastleigh.

Dunstable Town would like to wish Lee all the best in the future.
