Leigh Centurions have completed the permanent signing of back Craig Mullen.
The youngster was on loan with the club from Wigan in 2020 but has now joined on a permanent basis.
“We had a really good group last season and I think that we’ve added to it, assembling a really strong squad,” said head coach John Duffy.
“We would have pushed hard for promotion last season had it not ended in the way that it did and I enjoyed being part of the group. We have a very competitive squad and there’s a lot more depth now which is something that makes you more hungry to succeed as a player.
“I’m looking forward to getting stuck into pre-season training and blowing off the cobwebs.
“Craig is someone with a big future in the game,” he explained. “We saw him develop so well in a short period of time last season and we’ve only seen glimpses of what I believe he is capable of. He is so versatile, able to play in a number of positions, and that’s something we will need during the course of the season.
“Craig is a nice kid and very popular within our group. During pre-season he was consistently the fittest in the group and I’m expecting him to push on again next year.”
