SALFORD RED DEVILS ANNOUNCE DUAL REGISTRATION WITH OLDHAM RLFC

by | Mar 21, 2024

We are thrilled to announce a dual registration agreement with Betfred League One side, Oldham RLFC.

This partnership will allow both clubs to send players for valuable playing opportunities in a competitive environment.

The Roughyeds have started 2024 with a convincing 10-48 victory at Workington Town and will be looking for a successful season under the guidance of Head Coach, Sean Long.

Head Coach, Paul Rowley has said: “It is great to get an on-field partnership sorted with Oldham.

“I personally have a very good relationship with both Mike Ford and Sean Long, so communication will be comfortable and positive.

“Oldham’s positivity, drive and ambition is something that is a privilege to be involved with and I am looking forward to both clubs benefiting from this connection.”

Director of Rugby & Operations, Ian Blease has added: “I’m very happy to get this dual registration confirmed.

“I have worked very closely with Mike Ford – and Paul (Rowley) has with Sean (Long) – on this agreement, which will now allow players – from reserve through to first-grade – an opportunity to gain valuable game time, with a local club.

“I look forward to this partnership blossoming and one both clubs will strive to make successful for the future.”

Sean Long, Head Coach at Oldham has also stated: “We can tap into some of their players when we are struggling and vice versa.

“If we need our lads to play some game time in the reserves, like Kieran has, they can go out and get some minutes under their belt.

“It’s good for our players learning their craft, but also if they have any players returning to action they can come to us.

“Neither side will be forced to take players, we will work together to form a good partnership with Paul Rowley and Salford.”
