John Roddy has stepped down as chairman of Leigh Centurions.
The businessman became Leigh chairman on a permanent basis last August having previously been interim chairman for three months.
Roddy was a key figure as the club formed a new Board of Management which took over the day-to-day running of the club.
He tweeted last night: “I am no longer Chairman of Leigh Centurions realised that after our win against Fev that my job was done - thank you for the brill messages.”
On Thursday Roddy tweeted: “Thanks for all the great messages again - got to get on with day job now!”
Leigh Centurions currently top the Kingstone Press Championship and have won 12 successive games in 2014 - their best ever start to a season. Leigh are also in the last eight of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup where they’ll face Leeds Rhinos.
The club this morning confirmed Roddy’s departure.
