Saracens have announced that Tim Swinson has signed a one-year contract extension ahead of the club's return to Gallagher Premiership ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The 34-year-old featured for Newcastle Falcons and Glasgow Warriors for most part of his career making over 250 appearances for them.

He came out of retirement for the 2020/21 season where he featured for Saracens in the Championship helping them to win the competition and went on to win the Players’ Player of the Season Award.

“I am really happy to stay here for another year and am looking forward to being part of the squad back in the Premiership," said Swinson, who has played 17 games for Saracens.

Swinson has also played 38 times for Scotland between 2013 and 2018 and was part of their 2015 World Cup campaign.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall is delighted with Swinson remaining with the club for the 2021/22 season.

“Tim is an outstanding professional and is highly respected by everyone at the club.

"He has made a huge impact on and off the field since his arrival and we are thrilled he has extended his stay with us for another season.”

Saracens will kick-start the 2021/22 season of the Gallagher Premiership with a clash against Bristol Bears at Ashton Gate on 17th September.
