Leon Best

Does anyone know what happened to Leon Best? I took a shine to him and thought he looked lively, direct, and quite skilful. Real shame he picked up such a nasty injury at a ‘last chance saloon’ time in his career.
Hope he’s doing ok.

Comments

  • I think he is still rehabing with the club
  • Decent journeyman pro. Did ok at Coventry and Newcastle (roughly a goal ever four games), but found his scoring touch at Yeovil (10 in 15).

    Didn’t play many minutes for us, but often looked like scoring.
