Leopold Paul Osborne "Leo" Fortune-West (born Leopold Osborne West) (born 9 April 1971) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Armthorpe Welfare.

Fortune-West started his career with Eastern Counties League side Tiptree United, and played for four more non-League sides before securing a move to the Football League with Gillingham for a fee of £5,000. He finished his first season with them as top scorer, and had several short stints with other League clubs before joining Cardiff City, where he played for three seasons. He played for the side as they achieved two promotions, but left on a free transfer.

He spent three seasons with Doncaster Rovers, winning promotion in his first, but was released in 2006. He then moved back to non-League football with Rushden & Diamonds, but soon made loan returns to the League with Torquay United and Shrewsbury Town. He spent time with Cambridge United and York City before joining Alfreton Town in 2008.
