Growing up in Melbourne’s Western Suburbs with her sister Jessica, Leckie first intended to play Australian rules football.

His family supported Essendon and Box Hill, and it seemed like he was destined for a career in the AFL. However, everything changed when he transferred to a school in Sunshine North with a more multicultural student body.

Leckie’s early football journey began with the Brimbank Stallions and later the Bulleen Lions, both in Victoria’s State League Division 1.

During his time with the Bulleen Lions, he caught Adelaide United’s attention, and in September 2009, he signed a two-year professional contract with the club.

In 2011, Leckie moved to Germany, signing with Borussia Mönchengladbach. He scored his first goal for the club in a friendly match against Aberdeen, netting a double in a 5-2 victory.

Throughout his career in Germany, Leckie had loan spells at FSV Frankfurt before permanently moving to the club in 2013. After his stint with FSV Frankfurt, he joined FC Ingolstadt 04 in 2014.

Leckie’s time at FC Ingolstadt 04 was particularly noteworthy as the club was promoted to the Bundesliga at the end of the 2014-15 season.
