Lion Hearted Mike Butt commits again!
4 hours ago
We are thrilled to announce that Mike Butt has signed a new contract which will keep him at Swinton for at least another season. Mike, who joined us from university rugby league in our promotion year of 2015, is a firm favourite amongst the Lions’ faithful with his consistent and honest performances at full-back and on the wing. Season 2022 will be his 8th year with the Lions, and to date he has notched up some 133 appearances and scored 77 tries. Upon putting pen to paper, Butty said, “I’m really excited to see what Allan can do with us next year. The lads he has signed all have the same work ethic and have one goal in mind, and that’s to get us back into the Championship. I’d also like to thank members of the Board as they have been very good to me over the years, and have made both me and my family feel very comfortable and at home at Swinton.” Head Coach Allan Coleman was extremely pleased to secure Mike for another year. He said, “I am over the moon that we have kept Butty. Both in my time at Swinton and in my time in Rugby League in general, I don’t think I’ve met a player with more commitment than Mike Butt. His standards are up there with the best in the game and for us to keep him is a massive statement of intent. I know Butty is a fans’ favourite and rightly so, and I expect our supporters will be as delighted as myself.”
