Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce the signing of Oliver Partington from Wigan Warriors on a two-year deal.

Partington, who can play as a prop or loose forward, has played over 70 times for Wigan since his debut in the Betfred Super League in 2018, with a Grand Final appearance and one run-out for England Knights.

Despite his age, the 23-year-old has established himself at the elite level of rugby league and will be an important part of our forward pack from 2023 onwards.

Speaking on signing for Salford, Partington commented: “I’m over the moon to have signed for Salford. After speaking to Paul Rowley, I knew it was the right place for me. I can’t wait to get going with the lads and looking forward to meeting the fans!”

On Partington, head coach Paul Rowley said: “It’s great news that Ollie has chosen our club to continue his journey. I’m looking forward to seeing him playing alongside our lads and know he will fit in perfectly.”

Director of rugby and operations, Ian Blease, added: “I’m really excited about capturing the signing of Ollie. It’s a real statement of intent getting a player of his ability, and he’ll fit straight into the culture created at our club.

“I expect him to flourish as a player and progress into competing for international honours during his time here – hopefully for a long time to come.

“When I first met with Ollie, I was really impressed with his attitude to playing rugby and it is clear he will fit right in within our incredible group.”

Partington is available for sponsorship for the 2023 season. Please email hannah.edge@salfordreddevils.net if you are interested.
