Swinton Lions are delighted to announce that Jack Hansen has agreed a new two-year deal with the club until the end of the 2022 season.
The club is delighted to announce that Jack Hansen has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal covering seasons 2021 and 2022.
Since making his Lions’ debut back in 2017, Jack’s game has developed in stature year on year, and he’s now one of the most talented half-backs in the Championship.
Up to March this year Jack had made 67 appearances for the Lions, during which time he’s scored 11 tries and booted 65 goals, including the famous kick which won the game over in Toulouse last season.
Jack explained the reasons for his decision, which no doubt will be greatly welcomed by all Swinton supporters.
“I’m over the moon to have signed on for another two years. I really see this club going places and I want to be a part of that. I’ve been here for close to four seasons now, and every year I feel I have developed and become a better player than the season before. That’s all down to the staff.
“I came to the club struggling for game time and had begun to doubt in my own ability because of that. But Stuart Littler showed faith in me and moulded me into the player I am today. He built confidence back into my game which I’m very grateful for, and this was a big factor in why I’ve chosen to stay and remain committed to the club.
“Hopefully over these next two seasons I can prove that I’m a strong, vocal half-back, who can lead this team into a bright future.”
Head Coach Stuart Littler was also delighted with the news. He added, “I am extremely happy to be able to announce this first bit of 2021 squad recruitment news. We have been very busy and I am delighted that Jack Hansen has agreed a new two year contract with us.
“Jack is developing into an outstanding young player, and he has also grown into a quality young man throughout his time with us. I have coached Jack from College age and we have a very close bond. I really see him developing into one of the Championship’s best half-backs over the next few years.
“The potential for growth with Jack is massive as he cares deeply about his game and is constantly challenging himself and his team to be better. Jack really buys into our club’s trademarks and articulates a good culture around him. This again assists with the growth and development we are aiming for over the next couple of years.”
