Being a newbie to this dirty finger nail stuff, I didnt collect the fallen leaves from my newly planted lawn, this has resulted in a pock marked surface under the tree, is their anything I can do about this?

Welcome Monaghangreenfingers ,
Give the ground a good watering and lightly rake the bare parts , sow some more grass seeds . Hope this helps
Cool Bugs

Agree with Bugs there monaghangreenfingers.
Watering will be very important, before and after sowing.
The garden soil will be very dry with all the dry weather we have been getting.
Even more so beneath your trees which suck litres and litres of water per hour from your soil.
It might be a good idea to mix the grass seed with some soil before you scatter it.
Raise your lawnmowers cut in the overseeded areas to prevent seed being sucked up.
