Championship ball for Monday night rugby league

Swinton have signed young centre Luis Roberts from Salford for the 2021 Championship season.

The 18-year-old played for Salford’s reserves in 2020 and also played for the club’s first-team against Swinton in pre-season.

Swinton coach Stuart Littler said: “Luis in an exciting young prospect who is coming to Swinton for all of the right reasons. After meeting with Luis and doing some homework on him, it is clear to see that he is very passionate about becoming the best possible professional rugby league player he can be.

“We are therefore happy that Luis has chosen to continue that development with us and we are very excited as to where the future may take him.

“Luis actually played against us for Salford in the friendly game early in 2020, as well as performing very admirably in a well-beaten Valencia side in the pre-season friendly against a strong Featherstone side. Luis completed a spell as a junior at our community partner club Folly Lane which I know will please a whole host of our fans.

“It is now an opportune time for Luis to start creating a name for himself, and we intend to provide the education and the platform to help him achieve those levels.”
