Claret Stat: Lee Briscoe began his career at Sheffield Wednesday, and was seen as one of the hottest young properties of the day, making five appearances for the England Under-21 side.
In 1998/99 Lee Brisco scored his first and only goal for Sheffield Wednesday in a 1–0 victory over Arsenal, his goal was somewhat overshadowed by a magnificent performance by goalkeeper Kevin Pressman and Paolo Di Canio's notorious pushing incident on referee Paul Alcock which led to two players (Di Canio and Martin Keown) being sent off.
Briscoe would make more than 70 appearances for 'the Owls' and went on a short loan spell at Manchester City before eventually being released on a free transfer in 2000.
Stan Ternent was the manager of Burnley and it was he whop saw that Lee could be a solution to Burnley's problems down the left hand side (Burnley never replaced the evergreen David Eyres). He formed an excellent partnership with Paul Cook, the experienced left midfielder, and the two would often devise new free-kick routines between them, with Gareth Taylor often the goalscoring beneficiary.
After more than one hundred league appearances for the Clarets, Briscoe was released due to the ITVDigital fiasco. He would sign for rivals and neighbours Preston North End, the tough tackling left sided player never quite hit the highs at Preston, he made just two appearences before being released in 2004
