Biographical Text

Leslie Dennington was signed by Exeter City from Reading in November 1928 for £500.

He made his debut in the reserves when they played Torquay United at Plainmoor, but a week later he was making his league debut for the Grecians in what proved to be a disastrous game, as they lost 7-2 at Walsall.

The half-back was playing for Wolseley Motors when he was spotted by Aston Villa and given a contract in 1924.
He made one league appearance for Villa and then moved on to Reading in 1926 where he featured in a further 11 league outings.

Dennington fared much better with the Grecians, however, adding 19 games in 1928-29, 30 in 1929-30 and 16 in 1930-31. He was released at the end of the latter season.

Leslie died in 1980.
