VIKING BRAD HOLROYD JOINS LIONS ON LOAN

21 July 2022

Brad was born at Warrington and played his early career with Crosfields ARLFC and Leigh East ARLFC.

He’s a former England under 19 player at community level, and featured in the European Championship held in Serbia a couple of years ago. He has also gained experience within the St Helens Academy set up and at Leigh Centurions, before becoming a regular on the wing for Workington Town as they won promotion from League 1 in 2021.

Following that success Brad joined Widnes Vikings and has played a number of games at Championship level during the current season. He now joins Swinton on a loan deal to the end of the current season, in a deal facilitated by our fantastic PrideBuilder fund.

Lions’ Head Coach Allan Coleman said, “Firstly I’d like to thank John Kear for his support which has enabled us to take Brad on loan. Brad is a player that I have coached at England level, and he was nominated last year whilst at Workington for the young player of the year award. He therefore knows this league well which is a huge plus. Brad can play full-back or wing and those are areas where we needed cover and competition. I am very pleased to have him on board, as he’s a very talented player.”
