Ross County FC can today confirm that Lee Erwin has departed the club. Lee departs for family reasons, where he needs to be located closer to the central belt which has been the only factor behind the decision and thus his contract at the Global Energy Stadium has been terminated.
Manager Stuart Kettlewell issued the following statement, “Lee had come to me and had a very honest conversation in regard to his family situation. We are all human and all have various situations going on in our lives and we are very understanding of where he needed to be and like any of us family always has to come first. Lee leaves with nothing but the best wishes of me, my staff and the squad.”
During his time Lee notched one of the most memorable goals of our return to the Premiership last season with his injury time winner over Kilmarnock in December at the Jailend. Lee played a major part in Ross County’s 10th place finish last term and our successful start to this campaign.
Lee departs with the best wishes of all at the club and will always be warmly welcomed back to the Global Energy Stadium.
