Leigh joined the club in February 2007 after being released by Swindon Town before Christmas 2006. Whilst at Swindon he had  loan spells with Bath City in the Southern League, Weston-super-Mare and Newport County in the Conference South League. Leigh is a very talented defender and has proved to be a great signing for the club since he signed him February 2007, where after he played a major role in our promotion to the Premier Division via the playoff's.

An excellent couple of seasons followed with a number of solid performances. These performances led to a lot of interest from other clubs during the past two pre-seasons but the management team were very pleased that he signed for the 'Marine' once again this season. 

Leigh has great ability and can play in defence or midfield but he looks most dominant in defence where his best performances have come. He is comfortable with the ball at either foot and very good in the air. His is a good reader of the game, his technical skills are excellent and he will always grab a goal or two from set plays.
