Leigh Centurions hold the first of their community event fixtures at Golborne Parkside on Saturday.

As part of the Leigh Centurions Community Partner Club Scheme launched in November 2013, event planning has been taking shape behind the scenes with the aim to take a series of reserve team fixtures out on the road and to create a host of all-day family fun events.

The action will begin at noon with the game due kick off at 2.30pm. Leigh Centurions have organised a day of fun with the centrepiece being the game against the North East Academy who will be brought to town by Great Britain legend Lee Crooks Leigh’s reserves have enjoyed a great start to the season under the guidance of coach Paul Anderson, with the highlights being wins over Halifax and Featherstone.

As part of the day’s events there will be coaching sessions and tag rugby taking place, with first team players in attendance along with club directors and officials and our mascot Parky Pig.

Representatives from the Junior Centurions will also be on hand with free season tickets being made available and much more.

All the profits on the day will be retained by Golborne Parkside Pirates.
