Swinton Lions RLFC have announced the signing of Jordan Brown from Widnes Vikings ahead of the 2021 Betfred Championship season.
The 20-year-old came through the ranks at Warrington Wolves, before joining Swinton’s fellow Championship rivals Widnes Vikings.
Speaking on linking up with the Lions, Brown said: “I’m made up to have been given the opportunity to sign for Swinton and I can’t wait to knuckle down and meet the boys in pre-season.
“Then hopefully get my foot in the door with a first team place once play starts next year.”

Lions’ head coach Stuart Littler is delighted with his latest addition, and said: “Our squad is really taking shape now and Jordan’s signing adds to the competition for starting shirts.
“He is a good size athlete and can competently cover both the middle and back-row positions up front. Jordan has played in the academy and reserves at Widnes after being part of the Warrington scholarship scheme.
“We are really looking forward to getting to work with Jordan as we see a lot of potential in him.
“He’s another highly promising young talent that meets our recruitment profile. Welcome to the Lions Jordan!”
The youthful forward joins a long line of new faces at Swinton, as Littler hopes to build on his side’s performance last year – their best finish to a season in 27 years.
