Congratulations to Matty Ashton, who has been voted as YOUR Player of the Month for March!
Winger Matty Ashton has been awarded with the first Player of the Month, with the poll receiving over 200 votes in its debut.
With five tries in as many appearances for the Lions, Matty Ashton has been voted as your March Player of the Month!
Ashton developed at local community side Rochdale Mayfield, whilst also spending a year down under with Northern River Rugby League Club Mullumbimby Giants before joining Swinton for the 2019 campaign.
With 41% of the votes, he has won the first Player of the Month award at Swinton Lions.
One lucky supporter will also have the chance to present the award at our next home fixture against Rochdale Hornets.
That supporter will be contacted in the next week, whilst they will also need to attend the Rochdale clash.
