Glohe pays own air fare from Australia to sign for Leigh

New Leigh signing Nick Glohe is paying his own air fare from Australia in order to take up a contract with the Leythers.

The 27-year-old will also have to find work and living accommodation in the process of linking up with the part-time Championship outfit.

Glohe joins from New South Wales outfit Lakes United and has previously worked with Leigh head coach John Duffy as part of the Scotland national team set-up.

“I’m very much looking forward to playing for a club with such a proud history and great loyal supporters,” Glohe told the Centurions’ website.

“Pre-season in the winter is something foreign to me and I have no doubts it will be a tough one but I’m keen to get stuck in with the lads and set ourselves up for strong season.

“I know a few of the lads from Scotland so I’m looking forward to linking up with at club level as well as Duffs who I know will have the boys firing come first round of the season. I’m anticipating a tough season but ready to play my role in a successful year for the club in 2020.”

Leigh boss Duffy added: “I have worked with Nick at Scotland international level. He has a British passport and moved to Australia with his parents when he was very young.

“He’s a great lad and I think the fans will really take to him and enjoy watching him play. Nick really impressed me last year in the national camp, I’m glad to get him on board.

“Nick is a primary school teacher and we’ll be looking to get him some work around Leigh. He is backing himself by paying his own air fare over here, looking for a job and a place to stay.

“It was a no brainer for me to bring him here and I’m excited to work with him again.”
