LUTHER Burrell and Alex Mitchell will not forget Northampton's Premiership Rugby Cup Final success in a hurry for altogether different reasons.

Warrington Wolves-bound Burrell will make the switch to Super League in July satisfied to be a silverware winner in his last rugby union season, with more irons in the fire yet.

While former Lymm High School and Lymm Rugby Club scrum-half Mitchell can celebrate what he hopes will be the first of many cup final successes at the start of his top-flight career.

Burrell left the field early with a head injury and Mitchell played for 58 minutes in the 23-9 victory over Saracens in Sunday's final at Franklin's Gardens, the home of Northampton.

They helped their club to its first prize for five years.

Ex-England international Burrell, 31, featured in the centres, as he may do when he makes his high-profile move to The Wire this summer though it is expected he could also do a job in the second row.

For Mitchell, who started playing at Lymm Rugby Club when he was six-years-old, the success also capped receiving his first senior contract in January – terms that will keep him at Saints until 2021.

The 21-year-old has risen through the ranks, having first joined the Northampton academy from Sale Sharks' youth set-up in 2015.

Mitchell is a shooting star, having already represented England in international matches at the under 16s, 17s, 18s and 20s age groups.

He was a member of the England squad for the 2017 World Rugby Under 20s Championships in Georgia, crossing for a try in each of their two opening pool games before starting in the semi-final against South Africa.

His breakthrough season in the Saints first team also saw him assist the Wanderers lift the Premiership Rugby A League trophy in 2017 and 2018.

His older brother James is also a product of the mini, junior and colts section of Lymm RFC, while also having represented his country.
