Lee Hendrie

Where is Lee Hendrie now?

Lee Hendrie was a fabulously gifted footballer who retired from playing in 2013 after a spell in Indonesia and also in non league football with Tamworth and Corby Town.

Hendrie was unfortunate to lose his entire fortune after the property crash which led to depression and an attempt to take his own life. Lee Hendrie was announced bankrupt in 2012.

Since then Hendrie has been heavily involved with charity work and visiting schools talking about his playing career.

In June 2016, Hendrie along with three friends formed their own football club called Montpellier FC who compete in the Midland League.
