Swinton sign former Saints centre

Former St Helens and Leigh centre Anthony Stewart made his debut for Swinton in Sunday’s defeat against Widnes.

Stewart, 30, moved to the Lions late last week and was immediately thrust in to action by Swinton first team coach Paul Smith.

Director of Coaching Paul Kidd told the club’s official website: “Due to the high level of injuries at the moment, this a great signing for us. Tony has played at the highest level in this country and his experience can only help.

“Tony had yet to find a club, but to have a player of his calibre, willing and able to step up is fantastic.

“Tony was keen to get back in the game and knows he will have to work hard to cement his place in the team and is looking forward to the challenge.”

Stewart has previously played for Swinton’s local rivals Salford, having signed for them in 2005 from St Helens, where he won Challenge Cup and Super League winners medals.
