Lee Joseph Matthews (born 16 January 1979 in Middlesbrough) is an English former footballer who played as a striker. He is now working as a football agent.

He began his career with Leeds United in 1997, after winning the FA Youth Cup with the club's youth team. He transferred to Bristol City in 2001, following loan spells at Notts County and Gillingham. During three years with City he was loaned out to Darlington, Bristol Rovers, and Yeovil Town. He signed with Port Vale in 2004, before moving on to Crewe Alexandra after a two years stay. After leaving Crewe in 2007 he joined Scottish club Livingston, before retiring from the game later in the year, at the age of 28. Dogged by injuries throughout his career, the talented striker was limited to a total of twenty goals in 138 league and cup appearances in his ten year professional career most of these appearances were as a substitute.
