Former Leigh Centurions man Jayden Hatton – who signed for the Lancashire club but didn’t play a game – has found a new club.
That new club is the Swinton Lions who are building for a strong League 1 campaign in a bid to earn promotion back to the Championship.
Hatton came through the scholarship and academy system with his home-town club Widnes Vikings, and made his first team debut there in 2019.
After a successful 2021 season with Widnes, Jayden briefly signed full-time terms with Leigh Centurions ahead of the 2022 campaign, but unfortunately he then had to re-consider owing to other commitments.
However, he is now set to get back on the field with the Lions after a spell out.
Lions’ Head Coach Allan Coleman said: “It’s great to have got Jayden on board at Swinton.
“He was a player that we very much liked last year when he was at Widnes. He’s a very strong and powerful player and he will add lots of quality to our squad.”
Hatton said: “I am really pleased to have signed for Swinton because it is a great club.
“I really want to help the Lions get promoted back to the Championship and I believe the squad here is strong enough to do so.
“I’m raring to go and I can’t wait for my first game with the lads.”
