Meet Kevin Sinfield Brother Ian Sinfield- Age Gap And Family Tree

This article was last updated by on

Kevin Sinfield’s brother Ian Sinfield is a former rugby player and current mentor. Ian is three years older than Kevin and previously played for Swinton Lions. 

The two brothers had two different trajectories. There are only a few occasions in sports we witness two brothers being equally successful, like the Kelce Brothers. But Ian is contemptuous of the career he had for 12 years.  

Now a fellow mentor at Salford Education Authority, Ian recently shared a sweet video of his brother lifting former teammate Rob Burrow over the line in the Leeds Marathon.

The marathon was mainly organized to raise funds for the Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease Appeal.

The England coach was also joined by his wife, Lindsey, who strays away from the public spotlight.

Kevin Sinfield’s brother, Ian Sinfield, works as a reintegration mentor at Salford Education Authority. Ian started working as a mentor in 2002 while also being a rugby player. 

Born on April 7, 1977, Ian is three years older than his brother and was the one to introduce him to rugby. The two brothers graduated from Saddleworth School and have had rugby careers polar opposite to one another.

If Kevin tasted success in every feat and also received an OBE title, then Ian had modest success, the one that didn’t make much noise or grab media headlines.

Ian’s rugby career began with Oldham in 1998 and spanned four seasons. He late returned to the team for a second stint in 2007 for one season. Ian played for four other teams, including a four-season stint with Swinton Lions. 

The older brother of Kevin Sinfield is married to a woman named Victoria, and the couple share two boys. Both the boys have shown interest in rugby, with their oldest even representing England. 

Born on January 6, 2005, Ian’s oldest son, Luke, represented England in the U-17 tournament in 2022. Luke plays for Saddleworth Rangers at a club level alongside his younger brother, Ben. 

Kevin Sinfield Family Life With Wife Jayne And Two Sons

Kevin Sinfield is a man who likes to keep his family life away from the public limelight.

Despite being in the media’s eyes for several years, Kevin has been able to keep their prying eyes away from his family. The rugby legend tied the knot with his wife, Jayne Sinfield, in the early 2000s.

The better half of the defense coach of the England team has lived her life away from the public eye. She graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University and previously worked as a hairstylist at Oasis Hair Leeds.

The couple shares two kids, Jack, and Sam Sinfield, and both sons are looking to carry forward their father’s legacy. And the eldest one, Jack, is well and truly on his way.
