Swinton Lions can officially confirm that our talented half-back Jack Hansen, will be moving on to pastures new elsewhere in the Championship ahead of the 2023 season.

The former Leigh East player joined the Lions from hometown club Leigh Centurions in 2017, and his promise was immediately obvious. Over the past five years Jack has established himself as one of the standout number 7s outside of Super League, and has given Swinton fantastic service. 

Jack’s final act as a Swinton player was his never-to-be-forgotten last minute try in the promotion play-off final against Doncaster, an occasion which will remain forever in Lions’ folklore. That effort was Jack’s 35th try for Swinton, in his 113th appearance.

Lions’ head coach Allan Coleman said, “Coaching Jack has been an absolute pleasure. He was a player that we never wanted to lose, but at the same time we accept and understand why he wishes to move on. The coaching staff here call him ‘the spongy’, as he absorbs everything he learns, and we will certainly miss him. I have no doubt he will kick on even further and become a player that the Championship stand up to and respect. From everyone at Swinton Lions, we thank you Jack, and no doubt we will see you soon!”
