Swinton sign five to bolster squad for Championship Shield

Swinton Lions’ squad has been boosted with the signing of five players ahead of the opening Championship Shield round.

Coach Stuart Littler, who won his first game at the helm against Bradford Bulls, has been busy trying to give his side some much needed strength in depth.

Widnes Vikings forward Dan Norman is the club’s only loan signing as they’ve brought in Thomas Coyle, Jack Hansen, Mark Nicholson and Ilias Bergas on permanent deals.

The Lions take on Batley Bulldogs at the Fox’s Biscuits Stadium on Sunday.
