Kevin Brown says his move to Leigh for the remainder of the season represents “another opened door” following an injury-disrupted spell with Warrington.

The Wolves announced the transfer of Brown to Leigh this afternoon, effectively spelling the end of his time with the club.

Brown said: “I’ve worked very hard to get back to playing after my injury and I’ve felt great for the past three or four weeks now.

“I’ve had a good, long chat with Steve Price and he and Warrington have been really transparent with me.

“They’ve had to have a back up plan after the injury to Blake Austin and have signed Matty Smith and I totally get that.

“I’m gutted to leave the Wolves but it’s opened another door for me and I’m really excited about coming to Leigh.

“I could have sat with my feet up and got my money for the rest of the year but that’s not me.

“My brother-in-law (Gaz Hock) loved his time at Leigh and can’t speak too highly of the club and Micky Higham’s a good mate of mine and I know what he thinks of the club and the town.

“They both speak very highly of (head coach) John Duffy.”

Brown has been sidelined since suffering an achilles injury during pre-season, but insists he is ready to prove his fitness with Leigh.

He added: “I want to play and I want to play well.

“I’ve got a huge amount of motivation to do well for Leigh. I’ve been monitoring their results and their recent signings and they’re a dark horse for promotion.

“Leigh’s a great club with fantastic supporters and facilities and coming here was a no-brainer for me.

“I desperately want to play and play well for them. I’m really confident about my injury and have passed all the tests.

“I would get a massive sense of achievement if I helped them get promotion and I’d be the happiest man in Rugby League.

“It would be right up there with anything I’ve done in my career.”
