Congratulations to our own Colin Robinson who has been nominated for an honour in the prestigious Spirit of Salford Community Awards!
16 December 2020
We are extremely excited to announce the signing of Geronimo Doyle, a New Zealander, who was previously with the Otahuhu Leopards in the Fox Memorial Premiership, the senior league in Auckland.
The Kiwi, who will turn 24 in January, also has extensive experience playing representative rugby league in his own country, including appearances for the New Zealand Maori residents’ team.
Geronimo is a strong running and well-balanced player, who can cover a variety of positions, including full-back, centre and wing. He is also a fine goal-kicker.
“I can’t wait to meet the entire Lions family”
Upon signing for the Lions, Geronimo said, “I’m really excited to be joining Swinton Lions for the 2021 season.
“I’ve heard a lot about the club’s strong tradition and history in the sport.
“I’ve also heard about the team’s loyal supporters, and I can’t wait to meet the entire Lions family.
“The Lions have remained busy throughout Covid and have been building towards the new season, and I hope my addition to the squad will assist in taking the team forward.”
Head Coach Stuart Littler added, “We are delighted to have been able to secure Geronimo’s signature after competing with other Championship clubs to get this deal done.
“Geronimo trained with us as a guest pre-Covid and he looked very accomplished within our set-up.
“He is certainly an exciting talent and he is someone who I feel can add real value to our squad and substantially increase competition for places.
“Geronimo can cover a whole host of positions in the backs and he tells me he is really excited by the potential and future we can offer.
“I’m sure you will all welcome Geronimo, as he definitely has all the attributes to become a firm crowd favourite.”
Once again the Club would like to acknowledge Pride Builder and the generosity of its members for their vital input in making this deal happen.
