('The Centurion' is the matchday magazine of Leigh Centurions.as always, a generous amount of space is dedicated to our visitors.)
After three reduced-size programmes, for the friendly games, The Centurion is up to full content for this week’s game with Swinton.
Although the magazine has been reduced to 40 pages, to make it more cost-effective, most of last season’s editorial items remain in place.
CEO ALLAN ROWLEY welcomes the Lions.
ROBBIE HUNTER-PAUL tells you how his team-mates reacted to his name change. Suffice to say he believes there is a huge untapped vein of comedy in the squad!
IAN MILLWARD tracks the development of the squad, through the friendlies and Batley game.
DAVE PARKINSON unveils his new stats, previews our visitors, reports on matches and tells us what it was like to attend the Northern Rail Cup feed-up – sorry, launch!
JAMES GORDON and TONY WILLIAMS are back, under a new banner. James looks at the weekend’s ‘Magic’ bonanza, in Sooper Dooper League, while Tony casts his critical eye on the proposed Championship changes.
GARETH WALKER tells us of Daryl Powell’s vision for rep. rugby in the Championships.
STEVE MANNING updates us on BARLA’s journey to ‘Four Seasons’ Rugby League.
ALAN EDGE still has the flat cap firmly in place, although he seems to be weakening in his stance against the ‘powers that be’. He also unveils an unlikely Australian cult hero, and attempts (not very successfully!) to explain the format and logic (!?) of the Northern Rail Cup group stages. If only he’d been able to attend the feed-up, (sorry, launch!) he may have understood it better!
MAURICE JONES and WAYNE KEEGAN’s superb photos are, as usual, worth a thousand words.
All this, plus the usual squad information, LISA news, Safety Bulletin and information from the Club’s Lottery, Commercial, and Community departments, for just £2.50.
Finally, I’m sad to report that BOB SHUTTLEWORTH feels he is unable to continue his looks into our Club’s past. I fully respect Bob’s reasons for his decision to decline The Centurion’s invitation to continue, and wish to thank him for his wonderful contributions over the years. His features have brought back so many memories for me and, I’m sure, many others of ‘my age’. Thanks for your support Bob.
In The Centurion this week
