However, he was more able at hockey and after starring on the left-wing for the St. Fagans hockey team he one a Welsh hockey, playing against Monmouthshire on 22nd January 1925.

His sole appearance for Glamorgan came against Monmouthshire at Ebbw Vale during June 1920 as the Club were looking for new talent ahead of their campaign in the County Championship. After some useful performances for St. Fagans CC, the all-rounder made 28 batting at number ten in in the Glamorgan first innings, but he went wicketless and was not called up again. He and his brother Cyril, who also played for the Glamorgan Colts, continued to meet with success with bat and bat for the St. Fagans club during the 1920s.

Their father Arthur was the landlord of the Plymouth Arms in the pretty village on the western outskirts of Cardiff, besides acting as Secretary of the St. Fagans hockey club. Leslie followed his father into the brewing business and worked for many years as a stocktaker for Hancock’s.
