Swinton Lions are delighted to announce the formation of a female section under the club name.

On International Women’s Day, Swinton Lions are thrilled to reveal news of plans to launch a female section under the title, ‘Lionesses RL’.

The Lionesses will be accessible to both school girl and open age players, and more detailed information regards recruitment and training opportunities will be announced very soon via our website.

The Lions’ Operations Director, Steve Wild, said, “It’s fantastic, especially on International Women’s Day, for Swinton Lions to be able to make this firm commitment towards the development of female Rugby League under the Lionesses banner.

“Together with the recent appointment of a dedicated Director of Development, we are making a firm statement that we are committed to making positive impacts for the good of the sport as a whole, as well as positive contributions to the communities in which we operate.

“Other initiatives will follow, as it’s only by being proactive in this way that we can hope to grow our club and cement its place in the future of the sport.”

In the meantime any enquiries regarding playing or sponsorship opportunities may be directed to the Lions’ new Director of Development, Damian Ridpath at [email protected].
