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 right-back with pace to burn, 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 two further appearances during the home fixtures with Middlesboro 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 now 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. The 19-year old also spent a month on loan at Bath City last season.
