Having arrived in the UK Leigh East’s overseas signings Alan Lantry and Kori Barber were welcomed at our Leigh office.

Alan is from an industrial electrical engineering background in Australia and Kori will be working as an electricians mate during their time at Leigh East and are pictured with SRW Group Managing Director Andy Mazey.

Managing Director Andy Mazey commented:

“It was great to finally meet up with the lads last night along with Leigh East Chairman David Coyle and Head coach Paul Wingfield prior to the lads first training session. They are both keen to get stuck in on the field and on site also.

As well as being talented rugby players they are really nice lads and it was a pleasure to also meet Kori’s partner. The Leigh East club is on the up and these boys only add quality to what is already looking like a very capable squad and hopefully they will add value to our site operations”

Lantry and Barber will be commencing employment and will be working on a major Manchester City Centre refurbishment project.
