Super League quality prop-forward Gavin was undoubtedly a marquee acquisition for the Lions during the close season – a signing assisted significantly by the Swinton supporters’ magnificent Pride Builder project. In fact Gavin first appeared in a Lions’ shirt on Dual Registration from Warrington back in the 2013 and 2014 seasons, when the club played at Leigh Sports Village. Gavin had originally played for community clubs Latchford Albion and Rylands Sharks before being spotted by Warrington Wolves. He then moved to Halifax in 2016, before enjoying a successful year with Rochdale Hornets in 2017 which prompted Salford to take him back to Super League. As well as appearing for Salford in 2018, Gavin also played on loan back at Hornets, as well as with the Lions for whom he played 7 times. Gavin also qualifies for Wales, and played alongside club mates Rhodri Lloyd and Mike Butt at the 2018 European Championships.
