Leigh have handed prop Tom Spencer a new three-year deal with the club.
Spencer, 23, joined the Centurions from Wigan on a one-year deal in the close-season, after impressing during two seasons on dual-registration at Leigh Sports Village.
Coach Paul Rowley told the club’s official website: “We are looking to bring down the average age of the squad and Tom is a player we wanted to secure. Although he was with us as a dual registration player from Wigan he bought into what we were about and was always regarded as one of us.
“He has been a consistent performer for Leigh Centurions for three years. We didn’t want to waste time in signing him so I am delighted to have him on board. His commitment and passion in playing for the Club is obvious when he pulls on a Leigh jersey and he is just the sort of player we want here.”
