Wolves Star Brown Moves To Leigh In Loan Move

Warrington Wolves confirm that half back Kevin Brown has joined Betfred Championship side Leigh Centurions on loan until the end of the current season.

Brown, 34, signed for Warrington ahead of 2017 from rivals Widnes Vikings, with his current contract due to expire at the end of this season. His professional career has seen him play for Wigan Warriors and Huddersfield Giants, as well as pulling on the England jersey for representative honours.

He made his Warrington debut in February 2017 and has made 55 appearances for the primrose and blue, playing in both the Challenge Cup and Grand Finals of 2018.

After sustaining an Achilles injury in pre-season training, Brown has been on the side lines since the start of the year.

Brown’s signing was registered with the RFL prior to last Friday’s transfer deadline which makes him available for all Leigh Centurions’ remaining Betfred Championship and play-off fixtures.

Karl Fitzpatrick, Warrington chief executive, said: “We would like to thank Kev for his services to the club both on and off the field during his time with us, and for his recent professionalism while out through long-term injury. During his time on the sidelines he has continued to be an important part of our squad, supporting the playing group with his vast playing experience within the game. We all wish him well.”
