Leigh retain exciting youngster Brad Holroyd

Leigh have re-signed utility-back Brad Holroyd for next year.

The full-back or winger joined the Centurions ahead of last season but found first-team opportunities limited, so he spent time in St Helens’ academy.

Leigh head coach John Duffy said: “Brad was something of a project for us last season.

“He was unlucky because we couldn’t give him much game time during the season so we sent him over to Saints academy and he really flourished there.

“He scored some fantastic tries for Saints and played in their Grand Final. We really wanted to keep him at the club and see massive potential in him.

“We are going to play him in our friendlies next year and see how he goes because he’s got the experience of facing Super League quality players. Hopefully he will kick on, put a bit of weight on and be challenging for a first team spot.”
