BEN Reynolds has pledged his allegiance but uncertainty prevails after Leigh’s tear jerking relegation from the Betfred Super League.

Half back Reynolds says he wants to stay and help Centurions return to the top flight next season.

In the coming days head coach Neil Jukes, Head of Rugby, Keiron Cunningham, and owner Derek Beaumont will discover how many more share the same view.

Most, if not all contracts, became null and void after Leigh’s 26-10 defeat to Catalans Dragons in the Million Pounds game.

New Zealander international Bryson Goodwin agreed a deal to join Centurions for 2018 and 2019 earlier this year.

But the South Sydney star for has been ‘transferred’ to Warrington Wolves for “a very strong and lucrative” offer without even playing a game for the Leythers.

However, prop Jamie Acton, who missed the entirety of Leigh’s Middle 8’s campaign through suspension, has agreed a four-year deal.

Acton said: “While everyone is devastated at this moment by the relegation I am confident that under Derek’s inspiring leadership from the top that we can regain our place in Super League and establish the club at the top level, which is what Derek and the people of Leigh deserve.”

“Jamie was already contracted next year and I had received lots of enquiries for him from Super League clubs including those we regard as the best in the game,” explained Beaumont.

“Despite the fact he, as can others, could walk away after relegation he has pledged his future to me and this club and that is a massive statement of his belief in me to take this club to where it belongs.”

Reynolds, 23, is of similar mind, shrugging off recent rumours about his desire to leave the club for greater game time.

“I am happy at Leigh, I want to stay at Leigh and I want to get them back in Super League,” said the former Dewsbury Rams player.

“We are a good bunch, everyone gets on and sticks together,” said Reynolds.

“Anyone leaving the club will go and new lads will come in.

“ But we will still have a good group here.

“They (rumours) come and go all year with people making their own opinions of things.”

The rumour mill also linked Dragons’ former St Helens playmaker, Luke Walsh, with a move to Leigh. Walsh is now out of contract with the Perpignan club but would seem unlikely to drop down a division.

There appear question marks too over the futures of local favourites, Adam Higson and Martyn Ridyard.

Ridyard finished the season on loan at Huddersfield but is contracted until the end of 2018. Winger Higson hasn’t featured since scoring two tries in a 30-6 win against Catalans on August 19.

Centre Ben Crooks was one of Leigh’ most consistent performers in 2017 but is now due to return to parent club, Castleford.

Skipper Micky Higham, 37 is also considering his future. “I feel as a captain of this club I have let everyone down,” he said. “And we have let the town and Derek down.

“Days like this makes you think double hard (about the future). I felt okay out there but I will assess in the off season.

“I’ll have a chat with the wife, Derek and the coaching staff. I don’t know yet; I will see what happens.”
