Salford Red Devils are delighted to reveal our 2016 Magic Weekend Shirt in association with The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity, a cause close to the club, player’s and supporter’s hearts.
The ‘Super Josh’ charity helps children who have or have had a brain tumour and their families with advice, support and financial solutions, with special focus on those who also have post-surgery disabilities. Josh was a huge supporter of the Red Devils and we’re delighted to be able to honour and continue his legacy through this special edition Magic Weekend kit.
The kit will be worn at St James’ Park, Newcastle when the Red Devils take on Widnes Vikings on Saturday 21st May, KO 2.30pm.
Our official kit suppliers Raging Bull have designed a ‘Super Hero’ inspired shirt which will feature the colours of the charity and the Super Josh logo emblazoned across the chest.
We will be taking pre-orders for the replica version from today until Sunday 24th April at MIDNIGHT via http://www.reddevilsrugby.co.uk/merchandise/ with a donation from every shirt sold to the Super Josh Charity. They’ll be available to collect from the stadium or for delivery on Thursday 19th May.
There is a limited number of shirts available priced at £50 for Adults and £40 for Juniors and a unique number will be printed on the collar of the shirt so purchase yours now!
The players’ match day shirts will also be signed and auctioned off with proceeds going to The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and the Salford Red Devils Foundation. More details of this will follow after Magic Weekend.
Dawn Fidler, Josh’s Mum and Founder of the ‘SuperJosh Charity’ said, ‘It’s totally amazing, thank you so much to the team at Salford Red Devils & Raging Bull for doing this for Josh, he loved his club so much and would be extremely proud & chuffed!
‘We are so excited for Magic Weekend, it’s going to be incredible seeing our Patron Josh Griffin and all the players in my boys SuperJosh logo, not to mention the amazing exposure for Josh’s Charity and our work helping other children with brain tumours in his legacy.’
