The latest addition to the Lions’ 2022 squad is Max Roberts, a young talent that enjoyed a fantastic debut season in the Betfred Championship during 2021.

Max, who is 21, started his rugby league career as a youngster with Leigh Miners Rangers. He then moved on to Blackbrook, before signing for Wigan Warriors at the age of 15 on scholarship forms. After a successful few years with Wigan at both Academy and Reserve team levels, he moved on to Oldham ahead of the 2021 season.

Max, who is effective at centre as well as second-row, and after a highly impressive season on a personal level at Oldham, is now eagerly looking forward to a new challenge with the Lions.

Upon signing for the Lions, Max said, “I’m really looking forward to becoming a Lion for next year. It looks like Allan Coleman will be getting a great group of lads together, and I can’t wait for pre-season training to begin, and then to get playing at Swinton.”

Head Coach Allan Coleman added, “Max Roberts is a player that I know very well. He played in the same junior team as my son all through his junior rugby career. He is a fantastic young prospect with bags of potential and I know that with us at Swinton he will be brilliant. His work ethic is second to none, and he’s a player with a big future in the game. In my opinion if he maintains this progress he will be a captain of the future without a doubt.”

Welcome Max to Swinton Lions!
