MATTY COSTELLO REUNITES WITH RICHARD MARSHALL

by | Dec 9, 2020

Matty Costello has reunited with Richard Marshall at Salford Red Devils.

The 22-year-old arrives from St Helens on a three-year contract, and will link up with the newly appointed Red Devils boss ahead of next season.

Costello said: “I’m pleased to be joining up with Rich again. He did a lot with me at St Helens and brought us on there. We had a meeting now we’ve both joined Salford and I’m sure he’ll be looking to do the same here.

“There’s a lot of players with international experience in the backs as well, so I’m sure I will learn from how they train and play too.

“I’ve always enjoyed playing against Salford. They’ve been tight games where the crowd has been really loud, so I can’t wait to experience more of that next season.”

Costello, who plays as a fullback, winger, or centre, made his Super League debut for St Helens in 2018, when he also won Championship Young Player of the Year with an impressive loan spell at Sheffield Eagles.

Marshall said: “Having worked with Matty a lot over the last two years, I’m really pleased to be working with him again.

“His versatility makes him a valuable asset for the squad and he showed what he is already capable of with some impressive performances this season.

“This is a new challenge for him, so he will have to knuckle down in preseason and force his way into an established backline.”

The signing of Costello follows recent announcements that Joe Burgess and Sam Luckley have joined the squad ahead of the 2021 campaign.

Supporters can get behind Salford’s new recruits, by purchasing 2021 season tickets early. Adult prices have been reduced across all areas, making it even more affordable to watch the team in action. Further details can be found HERE.

Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease said: “The addition of Matty strengthens our squad as a whole and provides options in a number of areas.

“He is a talented young player, who is still developing, but has already tasted success and is hungry for more.”
