Steven Leslie (born 5 November 1987) is a Scottish-born professional football player who currently plays for Shrewsbury Town. He is predominantly a left-sided midfielder and wears the number 11 shirt for the club.

Despite being born in Glasgow, he moved to Shrewsbury at a very young age and attended Sundorne School and Sports College. He made his debut for Shrewsbury Town on April 18, 2006 as an 83rd minute substitute in the 4-1 win over Rushden & Diamonds. This was his sole appearance in the 2005-06 season. At the end of the season, two years into his three-year scholarship programme, he was handed a one-year professional contract.

He played seven times in 2006-07, and sat on the bench for the League Two playoff final at Wembley. In July 2007, he signed a new one-year contract.

Leslie scored his first senior goal for Shrewsbury on the opening day of 2007-08, scoring late in the match as Shrewsbury ran out 4-0 winners against Lincoln City at Sincil Bank. In February 2008 he signed a contract extension to keep him at the club until the summer of 2009. He made a total of 21 appearances over the course of the season, and started to establish himself within the first team.

The following season Leslie made 33 appearances, but was sent off in the League Two playoff semi-final against Bury. This meant that he missed the final at Wembley. At the end of the season he signed a new two-year contract.

In 2009-10 Leslie found some goalscoring form, as he scored six times in 35 appearances. After finding first team opportunities limited he joined Hereford United for a months loan on 17 March 2011 this was later extended until the end of the season after an impressive few games including a stunning strike against league leaders Chesterfield in a 3-0 win. He the returned to Shrewsbury for their league two play-off campaign, making a lively cameo off the bench in the semi-final second leg game against Torquay United.
