Leigh left their old ground, Hilton Park, in 2008, and moved into the £50m Leigh Sports Village in 2009. The stadium was opened by Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. The stadium has four sides – three sides have seats, while the South Stand is a standing terrace.

The West Stand, or more commonly referred to as the main stand, houses the dugouts and the commercial boxes. The stadium also holds a large TV screen for fans, and has a hotel and supermarket situated near by.

There are many pubs situated on the route to Leigh Sports Village and one that is adjacent to the stadium. Other pubs that may be of interest to Rams fans are the White Lion in Leigh, The Thomas Burke (Wetherspoons) and The Centurion.

Postcode for SatNavs is WN7 4JY

 

The nearest railway station is Atherton Station, which is located four miles from the ground.

Another option is to get a train to Manchester Piccadilly and then a bus to Leigh town centre from Piccadilly Gardens.

Form

Leigh have struggled so far this season and currently sit 9th in the Betfred Championship.

The Centurions have only won once in the league this season, against Batley Bulldogs, and they beat the same opponent in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup last week.

Meanwhile, Dewsbury will be hoping to bounce back from two disappointing defeats. They were beaten by Toulouse in the league at home two weeks ago, and knocked out of the Cup by Whitehaven last Sunday.
