Leigh confirm Sidlow signing

Leigh Centurions have confirmed the signing of experienced prop forward Adam Sidlow for the 2021 season.

Sidlow will link up with former Toronto Wolfpack team-mates Matty Russell, Joe Mellor and Blake Wallace who have all joined Leigh in recent weeks.

Since making his first professional appearance with Widnes Vikings in 2006, Sidlow has gone on to play nearly 300 games with notable spells at Bradford Bulls and Salford Red Devils.

He was one of Toronto’s first signings in 2017 and made 80 appearances for the Club, scoring 16 tries. An imposing front rower standing at 6ft 4in, his arrival further boosts Leigh’s already impressive pack.

Reacting to the new, he said: “John Duffy is assembling a great squad full of Super League quality and I’m looking forward to chipping in and doing what I can to help the Club achieve its goals.

“It’s been a tough year, especially going without pay for several months at Toronto but now it’s good to have something to look forward to and be positive about.

“John Duffy’s teams have always impressed me with the way they play and I’m looking forward to playing for him.

“People tell me he’s a no-nonsense coach and I respect that. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into preseason training and working with him. “

Head Coach John Duffy added: “Adam is a consistent performer who has always impressed me throughout his career.

“Not many front rowers can play big minutes like Adam and he’s going to fit right in at Leigh Centurions.

“He’s based locally and knows a lot of our players already and after a bad year with Toronto he’s looking forward to playing again and is excited by the challenge.”
