    Kala, I used to get asked about that “resemblance” a lot while I was in England.
    Leacock played quite well. He and Marvin Andrews were the two guest locals who contributed the most I think. Other than the former top flight pros of course.

  2. Devon Leacock had the potential to be a great and prolific goal scorer back in the day.but circumstances cause him not to like many other of our players.

  3. Lara? Lasana? You two starting to look alike 🙂

  4. Finding his legs maybe. He only played one game.
