Mark Leonard (born 27 September 1962 in St Helens, England) was a professional footballer who was a striker for a number of English league clubs.

Leonard started his career with non-league side Witton Albion in 1981. Over the next 18 years he played more than 400 league games scoring nearly 100 goals at a number of teams across the North West of England as well as Bradford City. It was at Bradford where he spent the longest spell of his career and he was part of the team that nearly earned promotion to the top flight in 1987 88. He scored 29 goals in 157 appearances at Bradford City.

In 1993 94, Leonard was part of the Chester City side that were promoted as runners-up in Football League Division Three, in his only season with the club. It was the first of three successive clubs he played for under manager Graham Barrow. A knee injury at the last of these, Rochdale, ended his career.

After 19 years as a professional footballer, Leonard took up crown green bowls. He won the Merseyside Merit tournament in 2001.
