Our latest exciting signing for season 2022 is 25 years old hooker Matty Wilkinson, who will be joining us from Oldham.

Matty went to Oldham ahead of the 2018 season after being with Salford from the age 17. Prior to joining Oldham he had also enjoyed spells on Dual Registration with Halifax. In his time with the Roughyeds, Matty gained a reputation as a quick and skilful hooker, and a scorer of plenty of tries.

Lions’ Head Coach Allan Coleman was thrilled with this latest addition to his squad for next season. He said, “Matty Wilkinson is another I coached to representative honours in the community game. He is a very exciting player, and will prove good for us as an additional number 9. His pace and reading of the game are things which will be massive for us next year, and I admit that I am absolutely buzzing that Matty will be joining us.”

In response Matty said, “I’m really looking forward to playing for Allan Coleman again. I really enjoyed my time with him at Leigh Miners Rangers, and Allan also coached me at Lancashire amateur level. It looks like Swinton are building something exciting for next year. The Lions are clearly a good club with great facilities and they also play an attractive style of rugby. After a bit of a frustrating year personally, I’m looking forward to playing for Swinton and achieving something positive come the end of next season.”
