Biography


Lee Ashcroft began his career with Kilmarnock, making his debut in the 2012-13 season.

He would cement his place in the heart of the Killie defence the next season and even became their club captain at the end of 2015 at the tender age of 21. That season, Killie would finish 11th in the Premiership but would keep their spot in the top-flight with a 4-1 aggregate victory over Falkirk.

That summer, Ashcroft was released by the club and then snapped up by Dunfermline.

Much like at Kilmarnock, Ashcroft was with the Pars for four season and was made captain in his last year with the club but he decided to move on to pastures new with the expiration of his contract.

Dundee signed Lee in July 2020 on a two-year deal and he became an mainstay in the defence, only missing two league games.

On top of that, Ashcroft found his scoring boots and between January and May, he scored seven goals, including one in the 2nd leg of the Play-Off Final.

Along with being voted in the PFA Scotland's Championship Team of the Year for 2020–21, Ashcroft was also Player of the Year for Dundee.

Despite suffering an injury in November against Motherwell that was due to keep Ashcroft out well into 2022, on the 7th January, the defender signed a deal to keep him at Dens until 2023.
