Leigh add six new players to their ranks

Leigh Centurions have added six new players to their squad ahead of the 2020 season in a bumper day of revealings.

Today, they have confirmed the signings of halfback Ben Hellewell from London Broncos, forward Nathan Mason from Oldham, winger Ryan Ince from Widnes Vikings, forward Callum Field from Wigan Warriors, forward Danny Addy from Hull KR, forward Matty Wildie from Bradford Bulls and Nick Glohe from Lakes United Eagles for the 2020 season.

Hellewell signs having played his part for the Broncos as they tried to survive in the Super League.

Forward Mason was previously on loan at the Centurions, but now returns after a short spell in the Super League with London.

While winger Ryan Ince has been without a club since the back end of August, after he left Widnes following his exclusion from the squad ahead of the 1895 Cup Final, which the Vikings lost against Sheffield Eagles. He was a regular in their squad after coming through the academy.

Field also comes in with Championship experience having played on loan for Swinton Lions and Dewsbury Rams in recent seasons.

Versatile forward Addy spent the last few seasons at the Rovers after leaving Bradford Bulls following their relegation from the Super League in 2014, but he struggled to keep his place after a serious knee injury recently.

Former Scotland RL Student of the Year Glohe, comes from Lakes United Eagles in Australia, and comes in fresh from helping Scotland reach the 2021 World Cup after big wins over Serbia and Greece.

Wildie was instrumental for the Bulls this season as they reached the Quarter Finals of the Challenge Cup, beating West Yorkshire rivals Leeds Rhinos on the way, and scored in their quarter final defeat against Halifax.

As well as the new signings, they have announced new contracts for Andy Thornley, Jordan Thompson, Liam Forsyth, Brad Holroyd, Adam Higson, Junior Sa’u, Ben Reynolds, Sam Brooks, Tom Spencer, Liam Hood and Iain Thornley.

The club have also announced Mickey Higham will stay at the club after his retirement as a Strength and Conditioning Coach.
