McLeod signs for Maldon and Tiptree
The front man has a wealth of experience and has previously played for the likes of Everton, QPR and Swansea, in additon to the U's.
He also spent time at Braintree Town and, more recently, Stanway Rovers.
Maldon are top of Ryman One North but their form has dipped in recent weeks and they face a battle for top spot with Grays Athletic.
Park Drive boss Terry Spillane said: "I'm hoping Kevin's experience in big games is going to help us during the run-in.
"His fitness is superb and he's chomping at the bit to get going."
