Leigh prop Tom Spencer joins Swinton on loan

Swinton have signed prop Tom Spencer from Leigh on a short-term loan deal.

The 30-year-old has made more than 100 appearances for Leigh after coming through the ranks at Leigh and he also enjoyed a spell at London Broncos between 2017-18.

Spencer is set to play for Swinton against neighbours Oldham this Friday.

He said: “I can’t wait to get stuck in with Swinton and hopefully make a positive impact for the Lions.

“I’m keen to turn things around personally after missing out on selection through concussion protocol at Leigh, so this will provide the vital game time I need to get to where I want to be. But also it’s a chance from a broader point of view to be part of a derby game this week, and to join what I know to be a hardworking group from already being close mates with a lot of the Swinton team.

“I’ve previously played on loan for Oldham in this fixture in 2016 so I know how much of a rivalry it is and what it means to the players and fans. So for now I’m not looking further ahead than Friday where I hope to enjoy being part a good performance.”

Swinton have also confirmed the signing of youngster Dan Clare following a successful trial with the club.
