Leah is a professional footballer for Arsenal Women and England Lionesses.

She began playing at the age of nine and made her senior debut in Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to Birmingham in the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter final.

Leah made 12 appearances in the 2014 FA Women's Super League and at the end of the season was named the FA WSL Cup Player of the Year. Leah then won the England Women’s Youth Player of the Year award and in April 2015 she was named the 2014-15 PFA Young Women's Player of the Year.

She was part of the Arsenal team who won the FA Cup at Wembley in a 1-0 win over Chelsea in 2016.

Leah has represented England since 2010 and she captained the England Under 17 side in the 2014 UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship. She was also part of the England Women's Under-20 football team which competed in the 2014 FIFA Under 20 Women's World Cup in Canada.

In November 2017, she was called up to the Lionesses Senior sqaud, and made her debut in the 3-1 against Russia in the 2019 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Leah made the media in April 2015 when her successful penalty was disallowed for player encroachment in a qualifying match against Norway for the 2015 UEFA under-19 championship.

The match was ordered to be replayed five days after the original contest. The players returned to finish the last two minutes of their game with the score standing at 2-1 to Norway, Leah equalised and in doing so booked her team's place in the tournament finals.

They have provided me with great opportunities within the world of media to help me advance my career both on and off the pitch and I can’t wait to continue working with them.”
