We are thrilled to reveal Ryan Brierley has been named as a new vice-captain.

He joins the already established club captain, Kallum Watkins and other vice-captain, Marc Sneyd as part of a three-man leadership group.

Signing for his boyhood club in 2022, Brierley has quickly become a high-quality, reliable performer for the Red Devils, making a name as one of the best support players across the competition.

He was named Coaches and Supporters’ Player of the Year during 2023, in recognition of what was described by many as the best of his career so far.

On becoming a vice-captain, Brierley has said: “It is a privilege and a huge honour.

“I have always said Salford people are my people and that responsibility brings great pressure, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

“To lead this team behind Kallum and Sneydy, two players I’ve idolised and respected throughout my career, is the best possible start of learning impeccable leadership qualities.

“Hopefully we can have a successful season.”

Head Coach, Paul Rowley has also said: “It was a pleasure to make Ryan vice-captain of this club. It was a real sign of his progression as a person and leader.

“His development over his career as seen him go from a young lad, always the consummate professional, eager to learn and aspiring to emulate his heroes, to a man leading by his actions and using his experience and knowledge to guide others around him for the greater good.

“He as absolutely earned the right to represent his boyhood club and follow in the footsteps of many of Salford’s great players.”
