Professional footballer for Arsenal Women
England Lionesses player
England Women's Youth Player of the Year award
2014/15 PFA Young Women's Player of the Year
Leah is a professional footballer for Arsenal Women and England Lionesses.
She began playing at the age of 9 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 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 captained the U17 side in the 2014 UEFA Women's Under-17 Championship. She was also part of the England Women's U20 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 headlines 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. Nerves of steel!
In 2019 Leah joined a host of other notable figures in jewellery brand Swarovski’s 2019 #FollowTheLight campaign and was also selected to represent England at the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.
