John "Jack" Leonard (1876 – after 1899) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Small Heath.[1]

Leonard was born in Gloucester. A clever dribbler on the right wing, he had a fine season in the Southern League with Bedminster, but fell out of favour and joined Small Heath in November 1899.[2] He went straight into the starting eleven, making his debut in the Football League Second Division on 11 November in a 3–0 defeat at New Brighton Tower. He was given a run of nine games in league and FA Cup, but then lost his place,[3] and returned to the West Country with Cheltenham Town at the end of the 1899–1900 season.[2]
