Leigh stalwart Micky Higham has announced he will retire at the end of the season.
The 38-year-old has made over 500 career appearances for Leigh, St Helens, Wigan and Warrington during his 20-year playing career.
A former Great Britain and England international, Higham began his career and will finish his career with hometown club Leigh.
Higham said: “The time has come to call time on my playing career. To be able to live my dream for 20 years and now finish on my terms is something I could not have dreamed of.
“I’ve had the privilege to play for some great clubs with some great players and to play for my country. I’ve met some friends for life.
“But at the end of the season is the right time to start my next chapter in life. I’ve loved every minute of it, well nearly every minute – but all good things come to an end.
“I hope I can have a fairytale finish with Leigh this year in the play-offs but regardless of that, I’ve had a blast.”
