Oldham make permanent signing of Ince

Oldham have announced the signing of winger Ryan Ince from Leigh Centurions for the 2021 season.

Ince spent the early part of 2020 on loan at the Roughyeds, making two appearances.

The winger started his career at Widnes Vikings, before leaving in 2019. He then signed for Leigh ahead of the 2020 season.

Reacting to the news, he said: “I really enjoyed my short spell with Oldham at the start of the year and that had a big bearing on my decision to sign.

“Everyone at the club, including the other lads and the fans, made me feel very welcome and very much at home.

“When I was offered a contract for 2021 I had a good talk with Matt about how he saw the task ahead and his plans and ambitions for the club.

“I’m really looking forward to getting started. It’s been a long lay-off.”

Head Coach Matt Diskin added: “Ryan has real quality and I’m genuinely excited by his capture.

“We were very impressed with his performances when he played on loan for us against Bradford Bulls and Dewsbury Rams in March.

“He has plenty of pedigree and plenty of experience and he’s a good person too, as we learned when he was with us last Spring.”
