(1975/76 - 1982/83)
Signed from Dulwich Hamlet as a teenager in December 1975, John Leslie famously scored four goals on his debut in a Southern League game at Stourbridge in March 1976 only to be dropped the following week. He established himself in the side towards the end of the following season and scored one of the goals that beat Kettering Town in the April 1977 Southern League title decider.
When the Dons joined the Football League that summer, Leslie became a key member of the side that survived that first campaign before gaining promotion the following year. He formed a lethal partnership with Alan Cork and was named Player of the Year as Wimbledon won the Fourth Division title in 1983. Despite being the club's leading scorer he could not agree a new contract and he was sold to Gillingham for £10,000 that summer.
After two seasons with the Gills he signed for Millwall and subsequently played for Fisher Athletic and Grays Athletic before retiring and starting a career as a heating engineer.
