LIONS SIGN GREGSON FOR 2021

14 July 2020

Swinton Lions are delighted to announce that Nick Gregson has signed a deal with the club for the 2021 season.

The club is thrilled to announce the signing of Nick Gregson, as our planning for the 2021 season continues apace.

Nick, 24, will of course be familiar to Swinton fans having first made his Lions debut back in 2016 whilst on Dual Registration from Wigan.

He played twice more for Swinton in 2017, then played in all 6 games at the back-end of last season whilst on loan from Leigh Centurions – an impressive run that saw us gain crucial victories over Barrow, Halifax and Sheffield and a try for Nick against Widnes. 

Nick then looked to try his hand at the Union code with Preston Grasshoppers, but has now accepted this opportunity with the Lions. Nick is an extremely versatile player who will provide Stuart Littler with plenty of options.

‘A VERSATILE PLAYER WHO CAN COVER SEVERAL POSITIONS’

The Swinton Head Coach said, “I am absolutely delighted to be able to announce the permanent recruitment of Nick Gregson. Nick has spent time previously with us on Dual Registration and on loan. He is a very versatile player who can cover several positions within our squad.

Nick fits in with our recruitment plan and I know he cannot wait to get started with us. We competed with several clubs regards Nick’s recruitment and I am delighted to get it over the line. I’ve no doubt that Nick’s consistency in performance will get better and better with us.

I am really looking forward to seeing him develop with us when normality resumes. I know Nick is very excited to get back on the rugby field and he will bring that enthusiasm to our organisation every week. Welcome back Nick!”

Nick added, “I’m really excited about re-joining Swinton Lions, who have a great young group of hardworking and talented players. After spending a year away playing rugby union, which was something that I enjoyed and benefitted from massively in my playing development, I felt like the opportunity to come back to league and with the Lions was something I couldn’t turn down. 

“Now I am just looking forward to getting back into training and hopefully doing something special in 2021.”
