LITTLER'S SET WITH HIS OLD PALS AXE.

STUART LITTLER makes his Leigh debut this afternoon against his only other professional club.

The Ireland centre, 31, wasn't offered a new deal at the end of last season after 329 appearances for Salford - and was snapped up by Centurions boss Ian Millward (right).

But Littler insists he bears no grudges despite being axed as part of the City Reds' re-building plans.

"Salford's result will be the first I look for next season," said Leigh-born Littler.

"I wasn't offered a new contract but there's no hard feelings. I had 13 years at the Willows which I will look back on proudly when I finally retire.

"Salford has spent a lot of money since I left and they will be looking to aspire to that top eight.

"With the players they've brought in I am sure they can make the play-offs," added Littler who notched 112 touchdowns and was top try-scorer from 2003-2005.

"All my thoughts are doing well for Leigh and ultimately getting them into Super League."

Despite the cancellation of the Boxing Day programme, Championship Leigh are confident this afternoon's fixture will take place.
