We are delighted that Lee Payne, despite many other attractive offers, has decided to join us on the Full Contact team, on a full-time basis.

Lee’s appointment adds another piece to a jigsaw which is nearing completion and we are now able to offer a sportsperson a comprehensive range of professional services. Whether there is a need for legal, financial, commercial, reputation, mentoring or agency assistance Full Contact will offer the best advice and representation at market beating rates.

Will Buckley, Chairman of Full Contact, commented that “Lee is the antithesis of the stereotypical football agent and shares our belief that when it comes to representation there can be a new, and more adult, way of doing things. His CV speaks for itself and by joining us he is demonstrating his commitment to being part of a team of experts rather than, as some of his competitors do, holding himself out as a jack of all trades.”

Lee himself stated “As soon as I met Dan (Senior Partner of Full

Contact) and spoke to the others in the team, it became apparent that Full Contact is going places in the sporting world given the passion and hard work behind it all, and I am very excited at being a part of something special.  We have a long term vision to build Full Contact into one of the leading players for football agency and representation.”
