Nick Gregson Returns To Leigh Centurions

Leigh Centurions are delighted to confirm that Nick Gregson has re-signed for the Club and will join John Duffy’s new look squad in preparation for the start of the 2019 Betfred Championship campaign.

The former Wigan Warriors forward, who will celebrate his 23rd birthday on Monday, made 14 appearances for the Centurions in 2018.

Leigh Centurions head coach John Duffy said: “Nick’s a real good footballer and he got a good taste of the Championship last year.

“Nick plays his best when he gets a run of back to back games as he showed towards the end of last season.

“He’s got a great opportunity to play regularly this coming season and enjoy his rugby.

“I coached him at Swinton when he came on dual registration from Wigan and Nick’s now at the stage where he needs to push on with his career.

“He’s been niggled with small injuries which have set him back and he needs a good, full season and then have a good look at where his career’s at.

“He’s a real nice bloke, quiet and determined and he trains hard. It’s great to have him on board.”

Nick Gregson said: “I’m really looking forward to the season ahead with Leigh and playing under John. He’s a real good bloke and a very good coach.

“I never wanted to go anywhere else so as soon as I saw signings being announced after John’s appointment it was a really easy decision for me to make.

“I know a lot of the new lads and a few of them are from Wigan. Last year I was the only Wiganer but now there are a few of us, so I’m in my element.

“It was really frustrating at the start of last season when we lost those games and I wasn’t in the team so couldn’t have any effect on things. It was nice to play more games towards the end of the year and I’m really buzzing to be back playing for Leigh Centurions and the fantastic supporters.

“I’m really confident we can achieve things this year.”
