Leo Thomas Earl Roget (born 1 August 1977) is a retired English footballer who has played in The Football League for Southend United, Stockport County, Reading and Brentford.

Career[edit]

Roget made his Football League debut for Southend United in the 1–0 defeat at Portsmouth on 27 August 1996.

In July 2008, Gillingham announced that Roget was on trial with the Kent club.[1]

Roget returned to Conference National club, Rushden & Diamonds on 27 November 2008 after being released by Braintree Town.[2][3] He was released from Rushden & Diamonds at the start of January 2009, after just one appearance in the Conference.[4] He went on to join Harlow Town in 2010, leaving the club in July 2011 citing "personal reasons".[5]

Boxing[edit]

Roget is scheduled to fight his first professional boxing match against Mitch Mitchell on 7 December 2013, at York Hall. He will thus follow fellow ex-footballers Curtis Woodhouse and Leon McKenzie into boxing.[6]
