Date of birth
Progressing through one of the U’s regional development centres, Leon was a regular for the United U18 side in the 2015/16 season whilst a first-year scholar at the Abbey Stadium.
An athletic and pacey right-back who can also play further upfield, he impressed enough to be handed a first-team start in the EFL Trophy win at Shrewsbury in September 2016, aged just 16 years and 283 days. Leon made further appearances against Middlesbrough U23s and Scunthorpe in the same competition, before signing a three-year professional deal in November 2016, which has since been extended, meaning he will ply his trade with the U’s until June 2021. Highly-rated, Leon subsequently made his league debut for United in a 4-0 home win over Notts County during the 2016/17 campaign, enjoyed a loan spell with Bath City during 2018/19 and has now made close to 50 appearances in black and amber.
