Leon Knight

...
Signed for £125,000 from Brighton on an 18 mont contract , Leon had a dream debut in a home match against MK Don'ts.Leon grabbed a hat-trick and immediately made himself a fans favourite.
Electric pace, with excellent ball skills and trickery, Leon is a real handful for defenders at this level, and this was confirmed with his return of 10 League goals in 13 starts.
It was a spectacular brace of goals from Leon in the play off semi final, second leg that took the Swans through to the final against Barnsley, which ensured that he was to partner Rory Fallon in the final.His vein of form has continued through the summer and the pre season friendlies, so great things are expected of Leon in the forthcoming season.
Leon says he misses his time on the south coast and his stay there is fondly remembered by thousands of Brighton fans, as well as their manager, Mark McGhee.
2005/2006
Leon began his Career as a trainee at Chelsea making only 1 substitute appearance for The Blues.He played most of his football on loan at QPR, Huddersfield, Sheffield Wednesday and finally Brighton, before making a permanent, £100,000 to The Seagulls.
The 23 year old is said to be a player of Premiership quality who has superb pace, and an exceptional goal scoring ability.He also made appearances for the Under 17, 18, 19 and 20 England International sides.
Leon has signed a deal keeping him at the club until 2008 after passing a medical, for a fee of £125,000.There is also said to be a sell on clause for the highly rated striker.

Leon Knight A maverick. The former Chelsea forward turned lower-league journeyman shot to Twinfamy (better) when he gave the inside track on his shoddy treatment by former club Rushden and Diamonds with compelling levels of rage and scurrilous detail. Since then he's been up and down: foul-mouthed, sexually explicit, but rarely dull. He's currently playing for Coleraine in the Northern Irish league.

Leon Knight claims he has been racially abused both on and off the pitch since joining Coleraine earlier this season

Leon Knight today lifts the lid on a shocking tale of physical and verbal abuse that he has been the victim of since in Irish League football.
...
"I had heard almost nothing about the league here before I came over," said Knight.
...
Knight became an instant with Coleraine fans when he scored twice on his debut against Glenavon, but he was on the brink of leaving the Bannsiders before the January transfer window closed.
Mansfield Town were prepared to pay his former club Rusden & Diamonds a 30,000 fee they are demanding before the 28-year-old is allowed to play in England again.
So why, when he's been racially abused, did Knight stay and agree a new contract until the end of next season?
"It's only in the last few weeks that it's happened; since I signed the new contract," said Knight.
...
Knight, who started his career as a trainee with Chelsea, admits he has done wrong in the past, but insists the bad-boy image that has dogged him paints the wrong picture.
"In football a lot of things go off hearsay. Once something happens, by the time the third person hears it something has been added to the story," he said.
...
It's his reputation for scoring goals that Knight has enhanced in the Irish League, with the Bannsiders heading to Windsor Park to take on Linfield today, unbeaten under new manager Oran Kearney since he took over from David Platt last month.
"I'd a good relationship with David Platt and it was because of him that I stayed in January," said Knight.
