Club careerEdit

Queens Park RangersEdit

In 2011, Lennox joined Queens Park Rangers.

On 30 January 2013, Lennox signed a two-year extension with Queens Park Rangers,[1] but failed to make a single appearance.

In May 2015, at the end of his contract, Lennox was not offered an extension and was released by Queens Park Rangers.[2][3]

Maidenhead United (loan)Edit

On 24 February 2012, Lennox joined Maidenhead United on short-term loan,[4] and a day later made his debut, playing a full game against Boreham Wood, conceding 3 goals.[5] He then went on to keep a clean sheet in the next game against top of the table Woking in a 2–0 victory. In the first half of the game he saved a penalty from midfielder Jack King.[6]

Concord Rangers (loan)Edit

On 3 October 2014, Lennox joined Conference South club Concord Rangers on a 28-day loan.[7] After 3 appearances for Concord Rangers, Lennox broke his finger during training and returned early to Queens Park Rangers.[8]

Hayes & Yeading UnitedEdit

On 19 September 2015, Lennox joined Hayes & Yeading United,[9] but terminated his contract a week later after not making an appearance.[10]

AberdeenEdit

On 25 January 2016, Lennox signed for Scottish side Aberdeen until the end of the season.[11] He made his professional debut against Ross County in the final game of the 2015–16 Scottish Premiership.[12][13] In May 2016, he signed a new one-year contract with Aberdeen.[14] Following his loan to Raith Rovers, Lennox was released by Aberdeen on 31 May 2017.[15]

Raith RoversEdit

After extending his contract with Aberdeen, Lennox joined Scottish Championship side Raith Rovers on a season long loan in June 2016.[16] He made his debut for Raith Rovers against St Mirren in the second league match of the season.[17][18] He then kept a clean sheet in his second match for Raith Rovers making a string of saves despite tearing his hamstring in the first half of the match. He was forced to play through the injury as there was not a fit goalkeeper on the bench.[19][20] Five months later Lennox sustained significant injuries to his face and hand during a training match against Dundee United.[21][22] As a result Lennox returned to Aberdeen in March 2017.[23]

On 30 June 2017, it was announced that Lennox had re-joined Raith Rovers on a permanent transfer.[24] He played the first league match of the 2017–18 season, making a crucial save to allow Lewis Vaughan to score the equalising goal of a 1–1 draw with Alloa Athletic.[25] Lennox was released by Raith at the end of the 2017–18 season.[26]
