Jay "AJ" Leitch-Smith[1] (born 6 March 1990) is an English professional footballer who plays for Yeovil Town as a forward.

Career[edit]

Whilst on the books at Crewe Alexandra as a youth player, Leitch-Smith was loaned out to non-League clubs Halifax Town in November 2008 and Newcastle Town in March 2009.[2][3] He signed his first professional contract in April 2009, before joining Icelandic club ÍBV on loan.[4] Leitch-Smith was recalled from his loan, along with Chris Clements, in early September due to injury problems at Crewe.[5][6]

He made his debut on 29 September 2009 for Crewe Alexandra in their 3–2 home defeat to Bury in the League Two, replacing Joel Grant in the 80th minute as a substitute.[7] He scored his first goal for Crewe on 21 August 2010, for the final goal of the club's 7–0 win over Barnet.

It was announced on 27 June 2014 that Leitch-Smith had signed for Yeovil Town on a two-year contract.[8]
