Derek Beaumont : « Absolutely delighted and proud »
Derek Beaumont, Leigh Centurions Owner, tell us how he feels after being chose to be the 12th Super League club in 2021.
Absolutely delighted and proud to have been successful. It is a worthy reward for the immense effort of everyone involved. I am really pleased for the town, the fans, sponsors and all the staff and players. It’s a massive shot in the arm for us and an opportunity we will grab with both hands and make the absolute most of. I genuinely offer my condolences to all the other clubs involved who put up a fantastic challenge showing just what quality exists in the championship and I wish them all well in their battle for promotion on the field which one of them will be rewarded with. That will obviously be easier with Leigh out of the mix and for what its worth I think that Toulouse have the best squad to mount that challenge although it will still be a big challenge. I am very much looking forward to the trip to France to play Catalans Dragons and I know the fans will be also.
