Yesterday I attended the Leigh Centurions game to congratulate Tommy Sale in person following the announcement that he had been awarded the MBE by Her Majesty the Queen.
This wonderful news will warm the hearts of everybody in Leigh. Throughout his 93 years, Tommy has served our town and its No1 sport with distinction and utter devotion. He is a true gentleman of the old school and embodies the very best of Leigh.
Tommy, Leigh salutes you and thanks you for your outstanding service to our town and it people.
