Warrington Wolves youngster joins new club alongside former Wigan Warriors hooker

Swinton Lions have announced the signing of Morgan Burgess.

Burgess, who is 20 years old, played his junior rugby league at his local club Barrow Island. A former England Youth international, he was then signed by Warrington Wolves.

He also spent a period in 2022 playing at DR partners Widnes Vikings, and he now comes to the Lions with huge promise.

This comes as former Wigan Warriors hooker has signed a deal to remain at the club after starting out at Wigan and joining Swinton on loan in 2016 prior to making a permanent move.

The club have also confirmed the signing of half-back Jordan Gibson, who joins the club from North Wales Crusaders.

Swinton fans won’t need reminding of Jordan’s abilities, as he was a key factor in the Crusaders’ two victories at Heywood Road earlier this year.

30 years old Jordan is a native of St Helen’s, and emerged through the community game at Haydock ARLFC before signing professional terms with Crusaders.

One of the stand out players in League 1 over recent seasons, he will bring organisational and leadership qualities to the Lions’ 2023 squad.

The Leigh Miners Rangers young star, Andrew Badrock has also joined the club.
