Centurions Announce Leisure Resorts As Kit Sponsor

Leigh Centurions are delighted to acknowledge the continuing support of yet another loyal sponsor on the home and away kit for the 2019 Betfred Championship campaign.

Sponsoring the top back of both the home and away shirts are Leisure Resorts (www.leisureresorts.co.uk). 

Leigh Centurions commercial director Jason Huyton said: “To have secured sponsorship from a company like Leisure Resorts onto our playing kit in a prominent position is a tremendous achievement for Leigh Centurions and was born from the fact of the relationship between Derek Beaumont and Gary Molloy, the owner of Leisure Resorts.


“For me this epitomizes the fact that not only has Derek previously invested significant amounts of his own personal wealth, the club has now benefited from a substantial investment due to the influence of Derek’s business relationships outside of Rugby League.

“With Leisure Resorts being a relatively new company (February 2017) they may not be a familiar name to most of our fans. However, I am hoping this will change and our fans can now consider 5 star luxury holidays at their three perfectly located sites in the beautiful areas of Lakesway – Lake District, Rivers Edge – North Yorkshire and Aysgarth – Yorkshire Dales. I would urge our fans to help build this relationship as for me this is the beginning of a special relationship.”

Gary Molloy, managing director at Leisure Resorts said: “I have sponsored the club through my relationship with Derek and AB Sundecks before, during and after Super League with my previous and current leisure business and felt it was an important time to increase that support at a time when the club is rebuilding itself and needs its sponsors and supporters more than ever.

“I know how much the club means to the town and its folk and I am delighted to continue to support it. I am looking forward to seeing the local lads that have been recruited battling hard for the fans when I come to my next game.

“I never used to be a fan of Rugby League but I have really come to enjoy it now at all levels. In particular I love how well the clubs and professional players across the game interact with the fans and go to all the children after the game at the pitch perimeter to let them have their pictures taken.

“There’s a real family feel to Rugby League which is a perfect fit to Leisure Resorts’ latest model of rental holiday parks catering for families and all age groups and I intend to promote various offers to introduce them to my parks throughout the year.”
