Derek Beaumont set to remedy major criticism of Leigh Leopards rebuild

Derek Beaumont

Derek Beaumont’s rebrand of Leigh Centurions as the Leigh Leopards has been hugely successful and has spring boarded the club to the top four and into the final four of the Challenge Cup.

It cannot be disputed that it has been a huge success for the club.

However, there has been one criticism of the rebrand: the fact the club still don’t have a website.

However, speaking on The Last Tackle podcast Derek Beaumont has confirmed that the club is set to remedy this:

“The much anticipated website is about to come out this week and that shows all our history on there as a part of it.”

This came as Beaumont pushed for radical changes to membership in Super League:

“Being up at Magic, speaking to people, we’re a lot of people’s second favourite team as well, which is also good.

“I’ve brought it up with Super League, that I think we should have a benefit, if you will, to all season ticket holders, where you can get into another Super League club game that doesn’t involve your club, for half price or something like that.

“If we’re away in Catalan for argument’s sake, and let’s just say, Salford are playing Wigan out on the road, you want to watch a game of rugby, you’re not going to go over to France, you go and watch that, because it’s not too expensive.

“I think if every club reciprocates on that, then it’s a genuine offer. If they don’t, then you’re going to get your fans saying, you’re letting Wigan fans in cheaper than me when I’m a Leigh fan.

“But if it’s a benefit for being a member of a club, or of a Super League club or a Championship club, then I think it’s got good legs.”
