We are delighted to officially welcome the former Widnes Vikings forward, Kenny Baker, to Swinton Lions!

A native of Wigan, Kenny progressed through the various age groups at the Ince Rose Bridge club before signing his first professional contract with North Wales Crusaders. He then moved to Widnes Vikings in 2020 where he proved to be a big hit with the home supporters.

Kenny turned 30 years old last March, and plays primarily as a middle or loose-forward. In his three years with Widnes he built a solid Championship class reputation, and we are sure that he will provide much of the extra guile and steel that we will require next season.

Swinton Lions RLFC once again wishes to acknowledge the members of our fantastic Pride Builder organisation, for helping to make Kenny’s signing a reality.

Look out for Kenny’s interview and his thoughts on playing for Swinton Lions in 2023!
