Chris Kelly (born 14 October 1948) is an English former professional footballer who played in the Football League, as a forward. Kelly began his career at Tooting & Mitcham United before becoming a vital part of Leatherhead's cup run in 1974–1975.[1] As a result of this Kelly received minor celebrity status and because of his outspoken comments became known as the "Leatherhead Lip".[1] On the back of the cup run, Kelly made a brief but unsuccessful move to Millwall in 1975 after which he returned to Leatherhead where he saw out his career.
