Seems we have 2 players who are holding out to what they agreed to in their contracts.

Blame for downfall lies with these 2 lads then?
Leigh to win challenge cup before 2020
Leigh to reach Grand Final by 2022

Derek to get a queens honour (mbe) by 2025

Oh Leigh oh Leigh oh Leigh

He's no good - the lad is huge but couldn't bust through a wet paper bag. He was crap at Wigan, he was crap here, and christ knows why Saints then signed him. Predictably, he was crap there as well.

He's now where he belongs, in NL1.[/quote]

Yes, Seems DB (I won't walk away from the club this time) is walking away from the club he has destroyed. Why can't we attract a professional owner instead of the Arfur' Daley sorts we always seem to get.

Ah well, onwards and upwards after we hit bottom of Champ 1 in a season or 2.

Blame lies with the person who gave them their contracts.

Local RL journalist Mark Taylor has 'tweeted' the most relevant comments....

Okay, here's some of what Derek Beaumont told Jack Dearden on BBC Radio Manchester just now: "I have put a lot of time and effort and money into this so I'm bitterly disappointed. (On not making the top four) It has to be down to recruitment which I take responsibility for."
"The responsibility lies with me. I own the club and the decisions rest with me. If they don't do that, it lies with me. I took a lot of positives and enjoyment out of success when we achieved that and I was happy to avoid some of that limelight"
"It has been horrendous. You have to look at the whole picture and it's grim. I was hopeful I could strip everything back and strip the club back. There are two players we haven't been able to do that which has put the club in a difficult situation."
"I am still the owner and majority shareholder. As long as that remains in place I have a responsibility to that. Nobody has come forward. The club may have serious issues. The club is operating in special measures which mean I can't appoint a coach or sign players."
"We face action from two players and it's up to them what they do next. I hope they accept the offers from me and hopefully we can rebuild over the next two or three years."
"We have put responsible budgets forward to the RFL. They are nervous my backing has been removed. I think some sense will be shown soon. 40 per cent of the budget would be taken up with two players on full-time contracts."
"We are stuck in the middle of the deep blue sea at the minute. I would be prepared to step aside if someone comes forward and brings some investment. The people who are there at the moment have a lot of skills and knowledge and know what they are doing."
"If someone does want to make a significant investment I will write off the loans and give them the chance to achieve more than I did. There is a lot in the sport I am not comfortable with - with franchising and TV deals. I am a bit disillusioned with the game as a whole."
"When players enter contracts as in business do they should be met. There are two sides to this. I feel let down. There is no way that Leigh Centurions can survive as a business if it has to pay two players on full-time contracts. If not we will be no better than amateurs."
"I will make sure Leigh Centurions continues in whatever vein I can."
"I know you've had a bad day, but there's no need to take it out on me"

Thanks for that, as I thought I’d listened to the wrong station as unlike some I was sure he said he was responsible.

Also confirmed he’d write his loans off, where’s the man with the jaguar when you need him?

We actually had an Arthur Daley, a long striding second rower, who played for us in the noughties!!! By the way, who are theses 2 players holding us to ransom?
