The Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce that Assistant Coaches Martin Gleeson and Willie Poching, alongside Strength and Conditioning Coach Greg Brown have signed new contracts with club.

Gleeson has been part of Ian Watson’s coaching team since 2015, with Brown joining for the 2016 season, and Poching coming into the team for the 2017 season.

The trio form an important part of the setup behind the scenes, and Watson is delighted that they have all committed their futures to the club, he said;

“The retention of the coaching staff was a big thing for me personally and for the club, it gives us the stability and consistency in what we’re delivering here to the players.

My beliefs in the way we like to play as a team are backed up by the quality and ambition of Greg Browns conditioning programme.

Martin Gleeson and Willie Poching are two outstanding coaches, both with different levels of experience, that balance out our strengths and weaknesses as a coaching team.”

With Watson also signing a new deal, CEO Ian Blease is pleased to see the coaching staff stay with the club on a long term basis;

“Having this kind of stability off the field is crucial to what we are trying to achieve as a club. We have an excellent coaching setup here and I’m really happy to see that they are all committed to the Red Devils.”
