Centurions Announce Dual Registration Partnership With Oldham

Leigh Centurions are pleased to confirm a dual registration partnership has been agreed with Oldham.

Members of the Centurions squad not required by their parent club will be available for selection for Scott Naylor’s Betfred League 1 side.

Leigh Centurions Head Coach John Duffy said: “This is another good tool for us. Myself and Scott get on and both clubs have ‘dualled’ with Super League clubs so we know what works and what doesn’t.

“Scott’s been at Oldham a while now and he always does a good job. He’s a very good coach and bloke so this will make it a very worthwhile partnership for all parties.

“Scott’s lads come first but if he can give some of our players valuable game-time at an important stage of the season that will be great.”

Oldham are currently third in Betfred League 1 with five wins from eight games and their next fixture is at Keighley Cougars this Saturday (6.30pm).

Oldham Head Coach Scott Naylor: “John Duffy is a good mate of mine and we both know what dual-reg is all about.

“Leigh approached us about it in the first instance and after giving it full consideration we felt it was a good idea which would benefit both clubs.

“Both clubs, of course, have to get out of it what they want to get out of it and I’m sure we will.

“We don’t have the biggest squad and John wants some of his lads to get more game time which will help us in the event of injuries and maybe allow me, when appropriate, to rest some players or do some squad rotation.

“This will put us in a stronger situation than we’re in presently, from now to the end of the season, and enable us to be better equipped for the back end of the year than in previous seasons when we’ve had a small squad that’s been hit by injury.”
