Now a former U21 Republic of Ireland international, defender Lee joined the club ahead of the 2015 season after a spell spent with Shelbourne in the First Division.
Lee, who hails from Donaghmede in Dublin, played schoolboy football with local side Cherry Orchard where he made a name for himself before eventually joining Newcastle United in England in the summer of 2011.
Despite featuring for the side's development side regularly, Desmond was released by the Magpies in the summer of 2013. While on trial for Ipswich Town, Desmond featured in a friendly for the English side against Shelbourne and impressed the Reds' manager John McDonnell who signed the defender.
Desmond featured prominently during the 2014 season for Shelbourne and his good form was rewarded with a call-up to Noel King's Republic of Ireland U21 squad, which was quickly followed by the defender signing for Liam Buckley's side for the 2015 season.
Desmond has become a fans' favourite in his time with the Saints and is known for his excellent distribution and eagerness to start attacks from deep at the heart of the Saints' defence.
Previous Clubs: Cherry Orchard (schoolboy), Newcastle United (2011-13), Shelbourne (2013-14).
