Micky Higham Appointed Club Captain

Leigh Centurions can confirm that Micky Higham has been appointed Club Captain for the rest of the 2018 season.

Higham resumes the role he fulfilled in 2017 from outgoing skipper Harrison Hansen, who has joined Widnes Vikings.

Explaining the decision Leigh Centurions head coach Kieron Purtill said: “We’ve had a traumatic week and we’ve gone back to the old guard again. At times like this, you need people who are passionate about the Club and who believe in the cause.

“Micky knows what this Club means to the people of Leigh and there is no better person than Micky Higham.

“He didn’t take any convincing to do it. He jumped out of his skin and I’m sure he’ll lead this group from the front just like he has done every time he has pulled on a Leigh shirt.”

Liam Hood has been appointed vice captain but is ruled out of today’s Betfred Championship game against Sheffield Eagles through injury and so Ben Reynolds takes on the role.
