Swinton Lions are delighted to announce the signing of Paul Nash from St Helens.

The latest exciting recruitment news at Swinton Lions is the signing of Paul Nash from St Helens.

20-year-old Paul began his junior career at Clock Face, but soon moved to Blackbrook from where he progressed to the Saints’ scholarship programme at the age of 15.

He then represented England Youth against both Wales and France, before moving up to the St Helens Academy at the age of 17. Paul was a member of the Saints team that contested the Academy Grand Final in 2019, whilst also establishing himself as a key performer in the St Helens reserve team.

Paul is a hooker with outstanding promise and fits perfectly into our recruitment profile at the Lions.

Upon signing for the Lions, Paul said, “I’m excited for the opportunity to be a part of a Championship club like Swinton Lions that’s going in the right direction, and I can’t wait for the challenge ahead.”


The Swinton Lions Head Coach Stuart Littler added, “Paul is an exciting young prospect. If anyone gets to see his highlights reel, you’ll see that he is electric out of dummy half in a very established St Helens reserve team.

“After meeting up with Paul and his father I quickly became sure that he will fit straight into our exciting squad. With the recent changes brought into the game and the set restarts, a good 9 can cause all sorts of issues.

“I am confident we now have three within our squad who will compete weekly to be in our starting line-up. Paul is similar to a good few of our players in that he can competently cover other positions too, so his arrival also adds that utility value.

“We are excited at the prospect of working with Paul, and to assist in his development and growth over the coming years. Welcome to the Lions Paul!”
