We want to hear your local sport news

Johnston Press is launching the Leigh Observer, a new, quality newspaper dedicated to Leigh. With more than 100 pages each week, we will offer unrivalled local news and sports coverage we believe Leythers deserve.

With more space devoted to sport than ever before we are aiming to cover as many local teams as we possibly can. With your help, we can help celebrate your successes and make everyone aware of your organisation.

We want your match reports, news and photos to help make the Leigh Observer’s sport section the talk of the town.

The Leigh Reporter tried to include as much sport as possible but we were restricted by space and we appreciate some of you may have become disillusioned after spending your own time writing copy that never appeared.

This is a scenario we do not see happening in the Leigh Observer.

The Leigh Reporter ceased publication on October 8, and the new Leigh Observer will be on available on Tuesday October 13.

We hope you join with us in this exciting new venture. Together we can make a difference to Leigh and its tremendous sporting legacy.
