Lee Bullen has left Wednesday after a total of 14 years great service with the club to take over as Head Coach at Ayr United.
He signed for us on a free transfer in the summer of 2004 under Chris Turner and had his most famous moment for the Owls at the end of the following season when he skippered what was by then Paul Sturrock’s team to the division one play-off final win over Hartlepool in Cardiff in May 2005.
Lee also played in every position for the club, including that never-to-be-forgotten day at Millwall in 2006 when he took over in goal from the injured David Lucas just before half time and helped us to a 1-0 victory.
Bully made 148 appearances for the Owls before leaving for Falkirk on a two-year contract in 2008 and later went on to become their assistant manager.
However, he returned to Hillsborough in an academy coaching role in 2011 and was promoted to assistant manager in 2015 under head coach Carlos Carvalhal.
He was also caretaker manager on three separate occasions and became our under-23s manager in August 2020.
Now Lee, 50, takes over at an Ayr side who sit seventh out of 10 clubs in the Scottish Championship and his first game is scheduled to be at home to league leaders Arbroath on Saturday.
The London Owls say a massive thank you to Lee for his great work for Wednesday – both on and off the field – and send him every good wish for the rest of his career.
Lee, Lee, Lee Bullen!
