FORMER Leigh greats John Woods, Neil Turley and Chris Johnson have welcomed current star Martyn Ridyard to a select club.

Half-back Ridyard, 27, recently became only the fifth player in Leigh’s history to reach the 1,000 points for the club.

He received a trophy from the club to mark the feat and was joined by Woods, Turley and Johnson at Sunday’s game against Dewsbury. The late Jimmy Ledgard (2,192pts) also achieved this feat.

Ridyard broke the 1,000 point barrier playing his 150th career game for his hometown club against Barrow. He made his Leigh debut in 2009.

Ridyard is one of several Leigh players to have signed full-time contracts from next season and his form has been consistent as Centurions have led the Kingstone Press Championship from the first week of the season.

Woods is Leigh’s leading points-scorer of all time with 2,492 points while Turley and Johnson recorded 1,519 pts) and 1,073pts respectively.
