Devils Strengthen Board With Two Appointments

Salford Red Devils today confirm the appointment of two new non-executive directors to the board of the Holding Company.
Paul King and Paul Trainor will take up roles with immediate effect and put their vast experience into two very different areas of the business.
Both men have lifelong associations with the Club, Paul King as a supporter and sponsor and Paul Trainor having played with the Club’s Academy in his youth before becoming one of the main advocates of rugby league in schools within the city.
King is a Director of Capricorn Security – a local Salford business – and has many years in the industry, including time as a former shirt sponsor Securitas.
Paul King said: “I’ve been a fan since I was seven years old and I was happy to get involved and offer any help I could. I am hoping that my wide sales and marketing experience couple with my customer-focused experience will bring some know-how to the table.”
Trainor meanwhile is set to head up the Club’s new innovative new player pathway programme and he will be coordinating the youth development in Greater Manchester.
Paul Trainor said: “It’s exciting to be working with raw and emerging talent in the region. We intend to expand Salford’s territory within the game and this new strategy underlines out commitment to developing a pathway for local players, while being able to visualise talent from untapped areas. “
Red Devils Director Andrew Rosler said: “The level of experience that these two men bring to the table cannot be underestimated. We have been negotiating for many weeks to get to the stage where we can announce them as the first of our new board members.
“More key appointments will follow and we finally getting to a position where we can start to realise our potential off the field in order to maximise our performance on it.
“The educational and alternative career pathway initiatives to be announced are a huge part in growing the Club’s relevance and importance within our community.”
“I’d also like to take the opportunity to thank Dawn Fidler and Hannah Fendall, who have both now left the board, for all their hard work and it’s great that they remain both committed and loyal fans.”
