He’s one of our own.
Boyhood Salford Red Devils fan, Ryan Brierley has committed his long-term future to the place he calls home.
Putting pen to paper on a three-year deal, the 31-year-old will be in red and white until the end of 2026.
On his re-signing day, club photographer, Steve McCormick was in attendance to cover everything our number one got up to across two different shoots.
First up was a trip to official club partner, MUSE, who have a track record of leading complex, area-wide regeneration projects across the UK and has the experience to accelerate new neighbourhoods for communities, with the emphasis on delivery, quality, and sustainability.
Ryan’s extension took place with club partner Muse’s trailblazing sustainable office building, Eden, as the backdrop.
Commenting on Ryan’s extended commitment to the club, Phil Marsden, MD, Muse North West, said: ‘We were delighted to host Salford Red Devils and Ryan to capture this special moment – Eden, with Europe’s largest living wall, has already become an iconic building in Salford and Greater Manchester so seemed the perfect place for our region’s iconic rugby club to seal the deal with one its incredible team members.
“We wish Ryan and the whole team all the best next season!’
A massive thank you to them for allowing us to use their fantastic Eden development as a backdrop to Ryan’s contract extension – check our their website by clicking HERE!

SUITED AND BOOTED
The club’s official formalwear sponsor, Marc Darcy made sure Ryan was looking first-class for his photoshoot.
There’s only one place Brierley wants to be for the next few years!
INSIDE THE MIND
Ryan sat down with our YouTube channel to discuss a multitude of topics.
The perfect backdrop for some perfect news.
A FAMILIAR SIGHT
We’ve seen this a lot during 2023.
The second part of our shoot was filmed at the Etihad Stadium, where Ryan posed for photos with Head Coach, Paul Rowley and Director of Rugby & Operations, Ian Blease.
Lioness, Jess Park – a good friend and colleague of Ryan – was also in attendance to get involved with the announcement.
Again, a massive thank you to Manchester City, Etihad Airways and – of course – Jess for helping with the capture of our content.
