JOSE KENGA TO DEPART LIONS

21 July 2022

The club would like to announce that we have parted company with forward Jose Kenga.

Jose made his debut for the Lions in February 2019 at Sheffield Eagles and went on to make 27 appearances for the club. His final outing in a Swinton shirt would transpire to be the victory over Cornwall at Heywood Road in late May.

Unfortunately his time at the Lions was punctuated by both covid and a serious injury, but he remained a popular member of the squad who through professional determination fought his way back to full fitness.

With a young family, and being based in Yorkshire, unfortunately the travelling had become increasingly difficult, and a decision was therefore taken by mutual consent to terminate the player’s contract with immediate effect.

Head Coach Allan Coleman explained, “Jose has been a model professional during his time at our club, and on top of that he is a thoroughly nice human being. It’s a pity that things haven’t quite worked out, but we respect the logistical difficulties that Jose has faced recently, and having spoken to him at length we’ve reluctantly agreed that this is probably the best way forward for both parties. But I know I speak on behalf of all the players and staff when I wish Jose and his family all the very best for the future, and trust that he won’t be lost to the sport.”
