1871 – 1914
Who was Fred Lee?
Educated at Uppingham School, Lee was a right-handed batsman and an occasional left-arm spin bowler. He made his first-class cricket debut in two matches for Kent in 1895; in the first of these, he made 12 in his first innings against an MCC side including W. G. Grace, and 0 in his second innings. But in his second match, against Middlesex, he failed to score in either innings and he did not appear for Kent again.
In the 1902 season, Lee reappeared in first-class cricket as a lower order batsman for Somerset. He played seven matches in 1902 without great success, but in 1903 and 1904 he was a regular member of the team. He made little impact in 1903 until, coming in at No 9 with Somerset at 142 for seven wickets against a Gloucestershire total of 172, he made an unbeaten 73 and took the side through to a match-winning lead. A week later, Lee played a second innings of 73 and this time the match was more sensational.
