Former Leeds United striker prospect Dominic Poleon scores on final day, only six goals in 39 games

The striker left for Oldham Atheltic in September.

Last summer Leeds United had a changing of the guard in the striker department. The likes of Nicky Ajose, Billy Sharp, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara all arrived in the summer. Leeds also let some go. Luke Varney, El Hadji Diouf, Noel Hunt, Matt Smith and Ross McCormack all left the club in different circumstances.

Dominic Poleon also left. The 21-year-old striker joined the club from Southend United in 2010 and went on to make 31 appearances for Leeds in his time at the club - scoring four goals.

Last September he made a move to League One side Oldham Athletic for an undisclosed fee, hoping for more regular first-team football.

He has not exactly been a massive hit at Boundary Park.

Poleon however scored today, as the Latics finished their season with a 1-1 draw with Peterborough United.

The attacker scored in the seventh minute, but it was only his sixth goal of the season after 45 appearances, 39 of which came with his new team.

Poleon has clearly not been a big hit at Oldham but he will be hoping for a more productive season in 2015-16, to try and prove Leeds wrong for ever letting him go.
