George Leach was a summer cricketer for Sussex and played for both Spurs and Brighton in the early 1900s as a centre forward. 

Had played at Brighton for a short while before joining Spurs in 1905, coming in to add some physical presence, but only made the team on seven occasions (two in the Southern League and five in the Western League) in his first season and then failed to make the first eleven again in a senior game.  The rest of his appearances were in friendlies.

It was unsurprising that without much opportunity to play, Tottenham released him in April 1907 and he later re-signed with the Seagulls.

A useful right hand batsman and a right arm fast bowler, George represented Sussex at county cricket with distinction between 1903 and 1912, playing 226 matches and scoring runs at an average of 18.93, while taking over 400 wickets at an average of 27.94.  In 1917, he was selected for Captain Harwood's England XI.

George Leach died in Rowtenstall, Lancashire on 10th July 1945.
