Salford Red Devils have been saddened to learn of the passing of their former centre, Dennis Brown, on 28th September 2022, at the age of 83.

Dennis signed for Salford in 1963 from Thames Board Mills Club, Warrington, and made his first team debut away at St Helens in March 1964, in his recognised centre berth.  Over the four years he had with us, he made a total of forty-nine appearances, of which four were as substitute, and he crossed for eight tries bringing him a total of twenty-four points, since one try was worth only three points at that time

His final appearance for the Reds was away at Huddersfield, in the last match of the season, on 25th April 1966,  and owing to a long term injury, which prevented his continuing his playing career with any further professional club, was sadly forced to retire from the game.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends at this time.
