Lee Richard Samuel Mansell (born 23 September 1982 in Gloucester, England) is an English footballer, who can play in midfield but is occupying the right back position for Torquay United and is the current captain.

Mansell was born in Gloucester and began his career as a trainee with Luton Town, turning professional with the Hatters in August 2000. He made his first-team debut on 17 January 2001 in a 2 1 defeat away to Queens Park Rangers in an FA Cup 3rd Round Replay, with his league debut coming 6 days later in a 2 0 defeat away to Oldham Athletic.

He had a spell on loan with Nuneaton Borough in March 2003, scoring twice in five games. He returned to Luton, but was released at the end of the 2004 05 season, having scored 8 times in 47 league games. He moved to Oxford United in June 2005, and played 44 times the following season as Oxford were relegated to the Conference.

He was transferred to Torquay United, one of the sides to survive at Oxford's expense on the last day of the previous season, on 5 July 2006 for an undisclosed fee. He was a regular in Torquay's side in the 2006 07 season but, for a second season in a row, the side he played for was relegated to the Conference National.

Mansell is currently Torquay's captain, and most-capped player ahead of defender Chris Robertson. He was made captain in 2010, after Nicky Wroe was dropped for inconsistency and subsequently moved to Shrewsbury Town on 31 January 2011.

Lee made an excellent start to the 2011-12 season, scoring on the opening day at Plainmoor to rescue a point against Burton Albion on the 6 August 2011 before scoring again in a midweek Carling Cup tie against Southampton, netting Torquay's consolation in a 4-1 loss.
