Salford Red Devils are pleased to announce that prop Adam Sidlow will return to the club from 2023, signing on a two-year deal.
Sidlow, who has been a key part of Leigh Centurions’ forward pack in their promotion from the Betfred Championship this year, first donned the Salford shirt in 2008. He went on to make 82 appearances for the club in his four-year stint – scoring 14 tries – before moving on to Bradford Bulls.
The front rower made over 100 appearances from Bradford, with two seasons in the top flight and a further two in the Championship, which continued his development as a player. Following the Bulls liquidation in 2017, Sidlow joined Toronto Wolfpack, who were newcomers to League One.
In his first season with the club, Toronto stormed to the title and earned promotion to the Championship. He has since moved to Leigh Centurions and spent a year in the Betfred Super League before earning the club promotion straight back to the top flight a weeks ago.
His experience will be extremely valuable amongst our forward pack and will compliment the mixture of youth and experience we already posses.
Upon signing for the Red Devils, Sidlow said: “It feels unbelievable to be back at Salford after all these years – and I have to pinch myself sometimes. Paul and Kurt have assembled an outstanding squad and I love the brand of Rugby League the team is playing.
“I feel humbled and privileged to be brought into the squad and can’t wait to get in with all the players and start the hard work it takes to be a Super League player again. Personally, I’m only a couple of games from 100 appearances at the club, so I’m looking forward to that and completing some unfinished business.”
Head Coach, Paul Rowley also added: “I’m really pleased to welcome Adam to the team. He’s an experienced player and a fantastic professional to further enhance the standards being set by the boys.
“The coaches and I felt that Adam’s leadership, skillset and character make him a great fit within our group.”
Ian Blease said: “It’s great to announce Adam Sidlow has returned to the Salford Red Devils.
“When I first met Adam, it became apparent that he had clear passion for our club and couldn’t wait to sign and come back – it showed to me he is the right fit for our club again.
“Adam talked about showing the fans how he has developed his game and matured over the year and wants to prove he is a first-rate front rower.
“Adam wanted to be part of our set-up going forward and was excited on how far we have come as a club over the last six years or so. He is now an experienced player who will add presence and size to our pack and will look to lead from the front.”
