“I love it at Leigh” – Nathan Mason signs new deal with Centurions

James Gordon

Leigh forward Nathan Mason has signed a new deal for 2021.

Mason, 26, joined Leigh from London Broncos ahead of the 2020 season, having previously had a spell on loan at the club in 2018 from Huddersfield.

He said: “I love it at Leigh. So it was a no-brainier when I was offered a new contract. We have a good bunch of lads here and the break has been so frustrating given the way we started the season.

“Hopefully we can keep as many of this year’s squad together as possible and crack on again next season because it will be a very competitive Betfred Championship.

“John Duffy is a very thorough coach and though we enjoy ourselves in training, it’s serious business once we get out on the pitch.”

Mason started out at the Waterhead community club in Oldham, before turning professional with Huddersfield.

He has had loan spells with Oldham and Batley, and was also part of Sheffield’s 1895 Cup success in 2019 while on dual-registration from London.

Coach John Duffy added: “Nathan is a player who simply loves playing for Leigh. He was so happy to join us last year after being at the Club on loan.

“He totally bought into our preseason programme and started the year extremely well, showing some real consistency in the games he played. Nathan is a quality player and along with the other forwards we have resigned like Tom Spencer and Alex Gerrard plus Adam Walker, we’ve got some big boys in there with plenty of quality.”
