Stevenage have today signed left back Lee Hills on a 3 year deal, subject to medical. 

The 22 year old spent time as a youth player with Wimbledon and Arsenal before joining the Crystal Palace academy. In his five years as a senior player with Palace he made 47 appearances and represented England at Under 18 and Under 19 levels. 

A promising career came to a halt in April 2010 when he suffered a knee injury that kept him out of the game for over a year. 

Manager Gary Smith said “I already had a good knowledge of Lee from his time with Crystal Palace. We took the chance to bring him in and get a close look and he has impressed us with his pace, quality and energy. He has a good character and has conducted himself in an extremely professional manner. I think he will be a very good addition to the squad.”
