Former Folly youngster Openshaw joins the Lions!

11 November 2022

Our latest signing Jonny Openshaw might already be well known to many of our supporters, as he cut his teeth in junior community rugby league with our local amateur side, Folly Lane. After leaving Folly he moved on to Leigh Miners Rangers, from where he was also selected for the England Community Lions under 20s side.

Jonny, a 20 years old hooker, lives a stone’s throw away from our AJ Bell Stadium training base, and it was at Salford Reds where he gained his foothold into the professional game. Last season he spent time on loan at Oldham, before now signing for the Lions ahead of 2023.

Hear what Jonny had to say about joining Swinton when he called in for a chat earlier this week!
