Swinton Lions are delighted to announce that Mitch Cox has put pen-to-paper on a new one-year deal with the club for the 2021 season.

The latest Lion to commit himself to the Swinton cause for 2021 is our centre, Mitch Cox.

Mitch came to the club from Leigh ahead of the 2020 campaign and played in all five of our competitive games before the season was curtailed. Solid in defence, but also effective in attack, as three tries in three consecutive games demonstrated.

Head Coach Stuart Littler was pleased to secure the services of another important player. He said, “I’m delighted to be able to confirm that Mitch Cox has agreed to another contract with us for 2021. Mitch works extremely hard and he is another player who is constantly trying to improve himself.

“Together we will continue to learn and develop, but Mitch’s effort and commitment is there for everyone to see. This is another bit of great news as we continue to assemble our 2021 squad.”

Mitch Cox pointed out how much he was enjoying life in Swinton colours ahead of the enforced lockdown. He said, “Firstly I would like to say thanks again to Stuart Littler and everyone else at Swinton for giving me the opportunity.

“Despite the season being cut short, I enjoyed every minute of playing in a Lions shirt in 2020. As a team I felt like we were coming into our stride, and with the weather getting better we would have created real problems for opponents in our league.

“I’m now looking forward to carrying on in 2021 with the same ambition as I started with the club this year, but also to keep improving myself as a player. The club has been really supportive over the last few months to the squad, and I’m sure everyone is looking forward to getting back playing as much as I am and building on where we left off.

“I’m really proud to be part of Swinton Lions for another year and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone back at the ground soon.”
