Lee Ashcroft (born 29 August 1993) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a defender for Dunfermline Athletic. Ashcroft previously played for Kilmarnock.
Ashcroft made his debut for Kilmarnock on 11 May 2013, as a substitute in a 3–2 victory against Dundee in the Scottish Premier League and then four days later scored his first career goal in a 3–1 loss against Hibernian. On 14 May 2013, Ashcroft signed a new contract with Kilmarnock, keeping him at the club until 2016. Ashcroft captained Kilmarnock for the first time on 4 April 2015, aged 21, in a 2–1 defeat to Motherwell at Rugby Park.
On 23 May 2016, he was one of six players released at the end of their contract. Shortly afterwards Ashcroft signed for recently promoted Scottish Championship side Dunfermline Athletic, making his first start for the club in a 3–0 victory over Arbroath in the Scottish League Cup. Ashcroft's first goal for the side came against Fife rivals Cowdenbeath in the same competition, where he scored from a Kallum Higginbotham free-kick. Ashcroft's first league match for the Pars came against Dumbarton, and saw him concede a late penalty and receive a straight red for his last-man challenge on former Dunfermline striker Robert Thomson, though Dunfermline ended the match as 4–3 winners.
