What the below does is remove the first space from each cell.

If your data is in cell A1
 
Then put the following in B1
 
=TRIM(A1)
 
Paste the above in cell B1 down as far as you have data in Column A. Now select column B & copy it & select column A, choose Edit > Paste Special > Values > OK. 
 
Now delete column B.
 
Hope this helps….
