Mathew Leckie (born 4 February 1991) is an Australian football player who currently plays for Adelaide United. He plays as a right winger as well as a striker.

Mathew Leckie was a member of Victorian State League Division 1 outfit, Bulleen Lions until 2 September 2009, where Leckie was signed to Adelaide United for a 2 year professional contract.

He made his A-League debut on the 18th of September for Adelaide United coming in as a substitute in the 75th minute against Melbourne Victory.

Leckie scored the winning goal in his first AFC Champions League match on the 24th of February 2010, against the reigning champions Pohang Steelers at Hindmarsh Stadium. He followed this up by scoring his second goal in as many games against Shandong Luneng in Adelaide's 2-0 win on Match Day 2 of the Champions League.

In August 2009, Mathew Leckie was selected to represent Australia in the AFF U19 Youth Championship 2009, where he opened up the score-sheet in the 4-1 win over hosts, Vietnam, in the semi-finals.[5] Mathew was called up to the Australian Under-19s for the 2010 AFC U-19 Championship. He has been linked with a transfer to Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach but Adelaide United have been renegging on the deal for some months now, It is believed that they have offered in excess of $1,000,000.

Australian National Coach, Pim Verbeek, named Leckie in the 25 man Socceroos squad for the AFC Asian Cup 2011 Qualifier against Indonesia. Unfortunately, Leckie didn't make an appearance as Australia won 1-0 to book their place in Asia's Premier Football Competition.
