Former Leigh Centurions captain Danny Addy has signed for Salford Red Devils.

Addy becomes the second Scotland international to be brought into Richard Marshall’s squad, ahead of the 2021 campaign.

The 29-year-old said: “I’m buzzing to be joining Salford and can’t wait to get started.

“It’s already a good squad and I want to add to it.

“Obviously I was captain at Leigh. I see myself as a leader, whether captain or not, so will look to show that here.”

Addy joins the Red Devils on three-year deal and has previously represented Hull KR & Bradford Bulls in Super League. The new arrival operates across the back-row, at hooker and in the halfbacks.

To join Addy and his new teammates at the cheapest possible price, supporters should purchase their season tickets now, with the early bird window closing this month. Further details can be found HERE.

Salford Red Devils head coach Richard Marshall said: “Danny is another player whose versatility presents us with a number of exciting options going into next season.

“In him, we’ve also added another leader to our group, which helps create the right environment for some of our younger recruits.”

The 2021 Red Devils squad will see Addy link up with his Scotland international teammate Sam Luckley, in addition to a number of other new signings.

Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease said: “Bringing in Danny strengthens our squad in a number of areas.

“He’s another player with his eyes set on the World Cup next year, which will give him some additional motivation, so I think we can expect some committed performances in his first season with us.”
