Salford Red Devils full-back and 2017 top try-scorer will once again be sponsored by local pub The Dog and Partridge for the upcoming 2018 season.
Dennis Riley, owner of the Dog and Partridge, said: “I sponsored Niall Evalds last season and obviously at the beginning Niall wasn’t in the first team but he eventually earned himself a chance and broke into the side which was good for me.
“Niall ended up as our top try-scorer at the end of the season and you know he come through the ranks here at Salford and I’m looking forward to sponsoring him again and hopefully he does well for me next season.
“I’m hoping Niall can kick on and keep his place in the side but that’s up to Ian Watson but Niall’s versatile and can play on the wing or in the centres as well but I like him at full-back.
“But at the end of the day it’s all competition for places and I’ll keep sponsoring Niall. I like the lad a lot he’s quiet and keeps himself to himself – I’ve been trying to get him down to the pub for a drink but I don’t think it’s going to happen.
Salford Red Devils CEO, Ian Blease, said: “We’re delighted Dennis and the Dog and Partridge are involved with the Club again in 2018.
“Dennis is a massive Red Devils fan and one of the most recognisable Salford supporters and it means a lot that he’s supporting the Club in this fashion again.”
There are still a handful of Salford Red Devils first team players available for sponsorship in 2o18. If you’re interested in sponsoring a player for 2018 or exploring other sponsorship, advertising or corporate routes please contact Fiona.Woods@salfordreddevils.net.
