That is correct, and he was bang out of order. Beaumont was at the time involved in a feud with their chairman Marc Green at the time, and he was even banned from Odsal prior to his naughty comments about Bradford.


He wasn't banned from the ground itself , just the hospitality section I think.

Leigh Centurions have the Tommy Sale Youth academy based at Leigh Sports Village and strong links with Wigan and Leigh College academy and Community side Leigh East which are both also based at LSV.
Wigan & Leigh College Head of Marketing said: “We are proud to sponsor Leigh Centurions and further strengthen the close bond between the club and Leigh College. Our Centre of Excellence in Sport has already seen our rugby league academy players benefit from working alongside coaches and players at the club. We wish the team luck for a highly successful season ahead.”


Give Leigh the green light and funding for a cat 1 academy and it will be running in no time. Otherwise you are better working with colleges, local amateurs and schools

BTW Derek wrote off £1m of his Directors loans in the past year or so

Like him or not DB puts his money where his mouth is. Leigh look to be building a strong team and must be one of the favourites to gain promotion (if P&R comes back?). They look to be in a good position to be able to earn it on the field. Unless it doesn’t work out again and he wobbles like last time but that’s just the pitfalls of being in the championship, living on scraps and It’s multiplied if you don’t have a wealthy owner.

Good luck to them.

It's all just rumour, conjecture, click bait Mr Donnyman !

I can't see either of Kelly or Marshall coming to Leigh & I would definitely prefer NOT to see Kelly at Leigh, he's trouble.

This is just so called journo's trying to sell pages on the back of agents trying to ramp up interest in their players, most probably in cahoots.

No need to make fancy dan or high risk signings, Leigh. Many of the other Championship clubs are barely going to survive into next season, and that probably goes for some SL clubs as well.

BTW - League Express has revealed that the Leythers have also made an audacious enquiry for Rugby League great Benji Marshall.

Yes good luck to them. Beaumont has put the money in and at times that was hard to do when IIRC the Championship got salary capped at a lower level than the Superleague salary cap. He fought and won to get rid of that anomaly.

And he still kept putting it in, got Leigh promotion and they came 11th. But went down due to the ridiculous Blake Solly nonsense of the MPG.......

From where most of us are sat, Leigh is a gift horse to Superleague, quality ground, rich owner, and a club fans like to watch.

Yet here we are with Superleague seemingly bending over backwards to put TWP back into Superleague in return for a snake oil deal???

It's like every day is April 1st..... :o

Hang on? You’ve been saying for months SL didn’t want Toronto in the league and now you are saying they do? You’ve obviously lied so which is right?

I couldn't dislike the man, he's a big RL fan, keen to bankroll a grand old club. He's had all sorts of nonsense to put up with yet he still continues to invest in the game despite all the stupid barriers put in his way. The lower Championship salary cap he had to suffer, and the the silly MPG nonsense come to mind.

Both things were removed after they caused him problems and cost him money, but he fought on.

Listened to the post match garbage Brian McDermott was spouting tonight. If only Mr. Beaumont had been the guest instead we could have been listening to something highly positive for the game.
