HULL KR STARLET KIRKBRIGHT JOINS LIONS ON LOAN

21 July 2022

We are pleased to announce the signing of Max Kirkbright from Hull Kingston Rovers, who has joined us on loan to the end of the 2022 season.

Max is a 19 years old outside-back who hails from the Castleford area. He gained attention whilst playing at Castleford Lock Lane, from where he was welcomed into the Hull KR academy set up and made captain. He then progressed to the Rovers’ reserve team, and is now in line for further progress in 2023 having become part of the Hull KR first team squad this year.

A strong player with huge potential, Max joins us at a crucial time just ahead of Friday’s transfer deadline. For that the club would like to thank Paul Larkin and Mike Smith at Hull KR for their assistance, and also a big thank you is due to our Pridebuilder members for their crucial financial contribution to the deal.

Head Coach Allan Coleman said, “Max is a really promising wing or centre at Hull KR, where he’s in a full-time environment. He is a very talented young player, and when I spoke to him he couldn’t wait to come on board at Swinton and push for a jersey. He adds to the good competition we now have in our back-line, and at the right time of the season.”
