Leslie Samuel "Les" Afful (born February 4, 1984 in Liverpool, England) is an English footballer currently with Southern Football League Premier Division side Truro City. He is of Caribbean Descent.

Afful was born in Liverpool and joined Exeter City as a trainee after playing for a Merseyside youth team in Toxteth, after being brought to Exeter for a friendly by former Birmingham City and Liverpool player Howard Gayle.

He made his first team debut on November 17, 2001 in a 3-0 home FA Cup victory against non-league Cambridge City, prior to turning professional in April 2002. His league debut came later that season, on April 13 in a 0-0 draw away to Leyton Orient. He played once more that season, but failed to make any first team appearances the following season as Exeter were relegated out of the Football League and into the Nationwide Conference.

He played fairly regularly in Exeter's first two seasons in the Conference, but was out of favour by the time he joined local rivals Torquay United on loan in January 2006. He played five times for Torquay as they successfully battled against relegation to the Conference, but was not offered a permanent deal by either Exeter or Torquay at the end of the season, joining Forest Green Rovers.

He made a successful start to his career with Forest Green and in November 2006 was called up to the England National Game XI squad for the European Trophy decider against Holland.[1]

In February 2009 Afful picked up a serious knee injury which required an operation which ruled him out for the rest of the campaign. He tore his posterior cruciate ligament when he twisted his knee in a 2-2 home draw with Histon.

Afful was not offered a contract at the end of the season and was released. He then signed for Truro City.
