Alexander James "Alec" Leslie (April 1902 1974) was a Scottish professional footballer who played as a left-half. Born in Greenock, Leslie was an influential defensive midfielder who played 143 games for Birmingham, including 132 top flight League games and an appearance at Wembley in the 1931 FA Cup Final. A niggling knee injury disrupted his career; he played his last game for Birmingham in September 1931 before finally retiring in 1932. After football he ran a public house and worked for the Inland Revenue before returning to Scotland. He died in Greenock aged about 72.
