  1. Salford Red Devils player are lining up their defense against Covid-19 by joining the thousands of people getting their vaccine in Salford. Members of the famous Salford team visited the Covid-19 vaccination bus at Salford Quays, based outside the Lowry Theatre. Some players got their first dose and for others it was their second dose. In the sporting world, Covid-19 has affected normal activities considerably and led to the postponement and cancellation of a vast number of national and international events. Therefore, Salford Red Devils is doing their bit to get vaccinated in hope to get sports events back to normal and to keep everyone safe. First team starter 23-year-old Jack Wells who got his first dose at the vaccination bus said: His fellow teammate, international player and first team starter 30-year-old Kallum Watkins said: Tim Sandels, General Practitioner at Salford Red Devil’s club doctor and St Johns Medical Centre said: Another important consideration for young adults to think about is the risk of bringing infections home to family members who might be at higher risk for severe disease. Even though a person may have had the infection previously, they should still receive the vaccine to prevent from getting seriously ill and to prevent having long-term Covid symptoms. All Salford residents over 18 years old, aged 16/17 years old and have an underlying health condition, or a carer either paid or unpaid can book their Covid-19 vaccine appointments here, or attend a walk-in clinic. NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) shares daily updates and details on walk-in clinics on their social media and their Covid-19 vaccine walk-in page. The national booking system is also available for anyone to book or manage their appointment. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/
  2. After much speculation on social media regarding the potential sake of the former Salford City Stadium to a third party, Sale Sharks - who have been linked to the deal, have issued a statement calling for talks between Salford City Council and its Co Owners Peel Holdings alongside Salford FC and Salford Red Devils in order to discuss options for creating a 'viable home' for all local clubs. The Sharks CEO Sid Sutton has also said that at this stage they have tendered no formal offer for the stadium which is currently shared by themselves and Salford's Red Devils. There have been unconfirmed rumours circulating for some time in the press and on social media that both Salford FC and Sale Sharks were looking at the possibility of jointly purchasing the stadium, news which has left some within Salford Red Devils fearing that their club could be left homeless at some point in the future. Sale have previously expressed an interest in purchasing the stadium with plans to expand but an earlier offer was declined by CosCos, the joint venture between Salford City Council and Peel Land & Property. Salford Council have said that they have been approached but as yet no offer has been received and talks are in the early stages at present. Sale Sharks CEO Sid Sutton, said: It may be an exciting time for Sale but for Salford Red Devils fans the news of a potential purchase and the prospects of the club losing its home at the stadium are troubling.
  3. At the start of the month we ran an article regarding the potential sale of the former Salford City Stadium, now known as the AJ Bell Stadium, located in Barton. Salford City Council maintain that any discussions on the sale of the stadium are still in the early stages and as yet neither the Council or Peel who make up the other half of CosCos (the joint owned 50-50 venture) have agreed any sale. An approach has been made in the past by the owner of Sale Sharks which was promptly turned down, with Salford Deputy Mayor, John Merry deeming the offer as being “unacceptable”. On the 1st of April, Salford Council issued the following which states that the Council will be seeking reassurance on commitments for Salford Red Devils before any such sale is agreed. However, in a statement released earlier today by the Devils, Chief Exec, Paul King states that the current tenancy agreement between the club and CosCos is 'simply unsustainable' regardless of whom has ownership of the stadium. Like most sports clubs in the UK, the Covid crisis has hit Salford hard and they are struggling financially with no confirmed end in sight. Even if the club were to reopen tomorrow it would still take time to recover from the knock on effects of the pandemic as supporters will no doubt initially be fearful of attending large sporting events until they can be assured that it is safe. Fortunately the outstanding vaccination roll out in Salford has led to a huge drop in infection rates with today just 8 confirmed positive tests being recorded, but even so it will still take time for local sports clubs to recover once they can reopen and Salford's Red Devils are not immune. For a club that has already been struggling, any future rent increases would have a catastrophic impact on their finances and ability to continue to maintain a base in Salford. If an agreement can not be found then there is the very real possibility that our local rugby club could find themselves homeless. The Devils are hopeful that they can secure a new affordable deal which would allow them to continue to use the stadium as a base and warn that increases to their rent above what is financially viable for the club would be devastating for them and professional Rugby in Salford. Paul King, Salford Red Devils Executive Chairman said: The club has now called upon the Council to work together with them to ensure that the club remains within Salford.
  4. In the past 24 hours we have received information concerning an approach by a currently unnamed third party with regards to the potential sale of the current home of Salford Red Devil & Sale Sharks - The AJ Bell Stadium, in Barton. Over the past few days there has been rumour circulating online that a stadium sharing deal between two other clubs has been put forward which could possibly see the future of Salford Red Devils at the AJ Bell placed in jeopardy if the sale of the 12,000 seat were to be approved. Salford Council has today released a press statement confirming that an approach from a 'would-be' purchaser has been made but are quick to point out that as yet, there have been no decisions made and that Salford Reds have been asked in light of the approach to bring forwards their own proposals for purchasing the stadium. The former Salford City Stadium, now known as the AJ Bell Stadium was constructed in 2011/12 and has been the home of Salford's Rugby League side since opening. It was built by Salford City Council in partnership with co-owners Peel Land & Property who both have an equal 50-50 stake in CosCos, the management company that oversees the stadium. Salford's Devils moved to the new stadium after quitting their former home 'The Willows' in Weaste. Since then the club has had its ups and downs but in recent years they have gone from strength to strength on the pitch with an impressive win of 'The Million Pound Game' and narrowly losing in the grand final to St Helens in 2019. In order for a sale of the stadium to take place it would have to be agreed by all parties. Salford Council has confirmed it will be seeking assurances for commitments for the club should any sale take place. The clubs behind the bid have not yet been named but both Salford FC and Sale Sharks have been mentioned as potential purchasers online, however we must stress that at this time this is just speculation and online rumour, it is not definite. The Sharks have made a previous bid for the stadium back in 2017 when owner Simon Orange said they had made an offer above what they thinks it is worth. Salford Deputy Mayor, John Merry referred to the offer as being “unacceptable”. A spokesperson from Salford City Council said:
  5. The Super Leagues 2021 season kicked off for Salford with a defeat away behind closed doors at the Emerald Headingley to current title holders St Helens. In Marshalls first test as The Devils new coach after taking up the mantle from Ian Watson who left at the end of last season, he saw himself pitted against Kristian Woolf, the man whom he served under at St Helens last season. Despite having an insight into his old teams tactics, it was not enough to secure a win over them as St Helens showed they were very much on the same dominant form they were last season. St Helens were in command from the start of the game and they maintained their lead comfortably throughout the match. They held complete control over the first half, which ended with them 13 up on Salford as they headed back to the changing rooms. Salford looked a little more of a threat in the second half with a try by Sio in the corner at the 55min mark, giving Salford a little hope which was bolstered even more by a goal by Inu shortly after, but neither were enough to do much damage to their rivals as the final score came to 29-6 and an easy win for the Saints. None-the-less this is the first outing for Richard Marshall as the big boss and he was up against a formidable foe in the form of the current league champions, better luck next week against Hull. Final Score St Helens (13) 29 Tries: Makinson, Grace, Percival, Naiqama, Walmsley Goals: Makinson 4 Drop goals: Welsby Salford (0) 6 Tries: Sio Goals: Inu Salford Devils next fixture will be against Hull FC this Saturday 3rd April at 12:15 PM Photo: Salford Reds
  6. New head coach Richard Marshall believes it is ‘an exciting time for Salford’ after taking over at the Red Devils for the 2021 campaign following the departure of former coach Ian Watson, who headed off to take charge of Huddersfield Giants at the end of the last season. Marshall said: Under the guidance of Ian Watson, Salford's Devils progressed from being just nail-biting seconds away from relegation in the Million Pound Game, navigated considerable financial challenges and brought joy to the city by charting his side to a Super League Grand Final and Challenge Cup Final in consecutive seasons. Marshall has some big boots to fill and he intends to do just that as on opening night he takes aim at his former club St Helens where he was number 2 to Justin Holbrook when the club sealed another title against Salford 12 months earlier. Kick off for the match is set for Friday 26th March, 2021 – 18:00 with the Reds heading along the East Lancs to the Emerald Headingley Stadium. Marshalls picks for the opener are: Addy, Brown, Costello, Escare, Ikahihifo, Inu, Johnson, Kear, Lannon, Livett, Lolohea, Mossop, Ormondroyd, Patton, Pauli, Sarginson, Sio, Taylor, Watkins, Wells, Williams St Helens are the club to beat this season as they look to bring home a third consecutive Super League title.
  7. Fans have been left furious after Salford Red Devils was handed a £15,000 fine with half of it suspended after failing to fulfil a scheduled fixture against Warrington Wolves on Friday 30th of October. The club claims it was unable to field a team as it had been left with just 13 players available for selection as a result of 'fixture congestion' from the clubs involvement with the Challenge Cup Final. As a result, Warrington was handed a 24-0 victory and referred to the leagues compliance department for not complying to the leagues covid protocols for withdrawing from such a fixture. Salford Reds say they made every effort to complete all fixtures and had made additional recruitments to the squad. A statement from the club reads: The RFL responded with a statement of their own: A source at the club has said that they are disappointed with the decision.
  8. Salford Reds have announced via the clubs website, the departure of head coach Ian Watson with immediate effect. Watson reportedly took the decision after being approached by another participating club in the Betfred Super League which is thought to be Huddersfield who are looking to replace Simon Woolford who left in September. Watson whose contract is set to expire in 2022, had earlier rejected an approach by Hull, pledging to fulfil his contract with the Red Devils. Sadly that no longer seems to be the case. After joining the club from Swinton Lions in 2014, he has become hot property after guiding the club into a Grand Final in 2019 and just a month ago to the final of the Challenge Cup. The club has now started the process of finding and selecting a replacement. The statement in full reads: Photo: Salford Red Devils
  9. Images taken from the air show cars filling a small layby off the A57 – making it impossible for emergency vehicles to get into the City Heliport. .map-responsive{ overflow:hidden; padding-bottom:32.4%; position:relative; height:0; border: 2px solid #fff; background: #262e33; border-radius: 2px 2px 2px 2px; } If emergency vehicles cannot get to the site the police and air ambulance helicopters, which are used across the whole northwest and beyond, are not allowed to take off. Now Salford City Council is asking motorists only to park in the marked bays along the left-hand side of the layby and warning that anyone who parks anywhere else in the layby risks being given a penalty charge notice of £70. The next match at the stadium is on Friday, July 13 and the stadium, Salford Reds and Sale Sharks are already alerting fans via social media. Councillor David Lancaster, the lead member for environment and community safety, said: Dave Kibblewhite, Base Manager for the National Police Air Service said;
  10. George signed for the club in 2015 and was ever present for the Red Devils in 2016 and has quickly become a fans favourite at the AJ Bell Stadium. The Back Rower has been one of the first names on the teams sheets for the Red Devils in this time and Ian Watson is looking forward to see him develop further over the coming years; “George has been the model of consistency during his time at the club. He was a key part of our squad last season and held the pack together alongside Craig Kopczak. George is still a young player and is developing all the time, his current levels of performance will just be the start.” Griffin is currently recovering from an injury, but is optimistic about his future at the club, he joked; “I’ve been given a 2 year deal with an option for a third year, but they’ll definitely want to keep me. It’s basically a 3 year deal.” And on current performances, it’s hard to disagree. George is Sponsored by The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Foundation.
  11. Carney (28yo) is currently serving a controversial eight-match ban after internal Salford investigation, for racist abuse towards Toronto prop Ryan Bailey during a Challenge Cup game. He has already served three matches of the ban, and would be available to play for Rovers well in advance of their Qualifiers campaign, where they hope to regain their Super League status. A Red Devils statement read: Justin was a fan favourite and will be deeply missed.
  12. Salford Red Devils have issued a statement regarding the behaviour of a handful of fans who decided to behave badly after the Reds stormed to a win on home turf which knocked Hull KR out of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup and put them into the quarter finals. The club is currently undertaking research aimed at getting more bums on seats at the stadium and understandably will not tolerate badly behaved fans tarnishing the clubs image as family friendly and a safe environment for all. A video of the bad behaviour was posted on Twitter, but was quickly taken down. The unruly antics of a very small minority were far outweighed by the exceptional behaviour and sportsmanship displayed both on and off the pitch by both teams players and fans. Club spokesmen Paul McNally posted...
  13. Salford's FAMOUS Red Devils have today launched a fan survey to determine the reasons for dwindling support from local Salford folks. Click Here For The Survey Speculation has been mounting on social media over the past few weeks after it was rumoured that the club may opt to reach out to a larger fan base by dropping the Salford link from its name. The wonderful chaps at Salford Star also highlighted it in this Article which describes how fans unfurled a banner at the match to send a message to Marwan. As would be expected this caused outrage from loyal Salford fans who have stuck with the club through the good times and the bad times. The very thought of our beloved and much cherished local club dropping the name of the City it was founded in was just simply outrageous. The club is currently known as Salford Red Devils, before 1995, the club was known simply as Salford, from 1995-98 Salford Reds and from 1999-2013 Salford City Reds. The key word here being SALFORD. So far any such change remains just a rumour, as nothing has been posted to suggest that a name change is on the cards. However some of the questions being asked about heritage give cause for concern as can be seen bellow. More than one of these questions would suggest they are testing the water at the least so as to gain an insight as to what the fans reaction would be. The very thought of the club (which has carried the Salford name since 1873) dropping Salford from its name to try and attract fans from other areas within Greater Manchester is just too much of an insult to its loyal fans to take seriously. It would be utter stupidity to even consider as the backlash would be immense, the one thing that Salford folks hate more than anything is to see the City's name fading into obscurity. Personally speaking I for one seriously hope these ARE just rumours and nothing more. The club does need more support, it has suffered over the years from problems with transport links into Barton, which were further setback when the planned second access point via trafford took a turn for the worst after the new lifting bridge at Barton collapsed last year. Motorway roadworks in the area have further impacted on travel which has caused issues for some, but over the past year or so much has been done to try and alleviate the problem. For others the move from the Willows to its present site in Irlam, along with the re-branding of what was Salford City Stadium to the A.J. Bell Stadium did not help matters either as many think it lost a lot of its identity. Of course there are also those who really don't like current boss Dr Marwan Koucash who is a little like Marmite for some fans, you either love him or you hate him. If we are being honest the whole shenanigans involving £164,000, Ian Stewart, Martin Vickers and match day expenses also left a bad taste in the mouths of some, myself included. Alas our local Rugby club is as much a part of our City identity and heritage as our industrial past, our broad no nonsense northern twang and Tony Flynn's annual magical history pub crawl/tour around Eccles (Coming Soon). It still to this day remains a huge part of our City, something most of us are proud of and want to see continue and flourish in the Super League. It has a loyal and loving core following of fans and although not the biggest club in the UK it most certainly has the most passionate of fans who follow the club hail, rain and sunshine and through thick and thin. So please fill in the survey bellow, let them know what the club means to Salford, tell them its OURS and that Manchester can keep their grubby mitts off it. So get down there and take your kids to a game, its great fun and the atmosphere is fantastic. Lets make #makesalfordgreatagain The survey takes a few minutes out of your time to fill in and gives them feedback on what you would like to see improved, altered and even ditched. So please please fill it in. Plus it would also save me having to alter the branding box above, so save me the bother and do me a solid here as I am getting on a bit. https://www.salfordreddevils.net/red-devils-launch-fans-survey/
