LEIGH Centurions’ elevation to Super League status will ensure head coach John Duffy won’t have trouble completing his squad for 2021.

Centurions have a couple of quota vacancies to fill but there have been no shortage of offers from agents and managers offering available talent.

Former New Zealand international Bryson Goodwin, who celebrates his 35th birthday on December 30, has been touted in Australia as a possible target.

Goodwin signed in 2017 but finished up at Warrington after Leigh’s relegation to the Championship.

Owner Derek Beaumont, general manager, Neil Jukes and Duffy are working behind the scenes on final recruitment.

“It is making sure we get the right person in who fits the club and who can make an impact in Super League and in Leigh as well,” says Duffy.

“There are loads of players still available.

“Lots of different names are brought up every day.

“The rest of Super League clubs are getting the same names. Bryson has been one of those names but I am not too far how it has been pursued.”

One player already signed on a 12-month loan is winger/centre, Keanan Brand from Warrington.

The 2019 Championship young player of the season played three-times for Wire last season after moving from Widnes Vikings.

“It has been very busy but in a good way,” confirmed Duffy of Leigh’s preparations for their eagerly anticipated return to the top tier.

“We are all very excited and it is great to see.

“We can’t wait to get going in a proper full-time environment after Christmas.”

Former Toronto Wolfpack half back Blake Wallace is now in the country and has already enjoyed his first training session.

Iain Thornley and Tom Spencer have been upgraded to full-time contracts though winger Ryan Shaw, who only signed a new one-year deal in September, is pursuing an apprenticeship.

“Iain’s passed all his electrical qualifications while he has been at the club,” said Duffy of centre Thornley.

“He is able to put that on the back burner for now to give it another shot at being full-time.

“I think it has been a tough transition for him but now he is back in the full-time environment, he won’t take for granted for what he has had before.

“It speaks volumes for Tom and Iain they are willing to take this opportunity and give their all for the Leigh Centurions in 2021.”

“I am very pleased they have both been able to secure full-time deals because they are two players who have been on the same journey as me since I came to the Club.

“The lads gave Ryan a good send-off this week. He did try to make a speech but he got shot down off everyone because he is always taking the mickey out of everyone.”

Former Centurions’ captain Danny Addy’s move to Salford has finally been confirmed. Addy, 29, has signed a three-year deal.
