Rugby League player Harry Aaronson is making moves back to his former club Swinton Lions RFLC.
As a sports scholar, TASS athlete, England Universities player and the University team’s performance captain Harry has already made his mark in the world of rugby league. Leaving his position at Keighley Cougars after two years and 19 appearances in the 2018 season Harry is ready to move back to the club that first started his rugby league career. Despite receiving the Cougars Young Player of the Year award in 2017 and also securing the try of the season accolades in both seasons Harry is set to move on to new and exciting things with the Lions.
Whilst studying Social Policy at Leeds Harry has been a key member of the University Rugby League team. Working with the boys he has helped them retain their title as the only Leeds team in a BUCS Premier North division. He was also selected to play for England Unis team where he made a strong impression scoring three tries and kicking 10 goals in his four appearances in the 2018 season.
Swinton’s Head Coach Stuart Litter has been impressed by Harry over his time away from the club:
“Harry has been steadily progressing and is a player who we have kept our eyes on. Harry’s highlight reel from the past few seasons shows the electric pace he can add to our squad.”
Moving to a championship team Harry is going to be challenged in his game and to perform his best. He spoke to Swinton Lions about his move:
“I feel like re-joining is a massive step up for me and I believe that the team that Stuart and Andy (the Lions Chairman) are putting together is promising. The Championship next season has some quality teams and I am looking forward to testing myself against them. I had an amazing two years at Keighley but I’m looking forward to getting stuck in with my fellow Lions.”
Sure to prove himself as a strong asset to his new team we wish Harry the best of luck as he continues to make tracks in the world of rugby league.
