Legendary rugby league winger Des Drummond was at Leigh Sports Village Stadium on Sunday afternoon to witness Leigh Centurions take on Warrington Wolves.

Drummond was invited to attend the game as a guest of honour by Leigh Centurions.

Drummond enjoyed considerable success with Leigh during the 1970s and 80s and was a member of the 1981-82 Championship winning team. He also amassed 24 caps for Great Britain.

Allan Rowley, Leigh Centurions chief executive said: “I played in the same team as Des in the 70s and remember him signing for Leigh. He has been a great ambassador for the game during his time at Leigh and Warrington.

“He was a superb all round athlete, shown by his tremendous achievements on the pitch and in the TV programme Superstars. Despite his legendary status, he is a genuine guy who has kept his feet on the ground and always seems to make time for anyone”.
