Swinton Lions have confirmed the signing of Jordan Brown from Widnes Vikings for the 2021 season.
Brown came through the scholarship scheme at Widnes’ Cheshire rivals Warrington Wolves, before the signing for the Vikings.
Reacting to the news, the second rower 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.”
Head Coach Stuart Littler added: “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.
