West Stand Value Statement

We launched our 2018 Season Tickets at midday on Monday and have received a positive response to our decision to freeze prices with some equally positive early sales.
However, we have had the decision to remove the West Stand Value category in 2018 questioned by a handful of our supporters.
We understand that this now does mean there isn’t a price freeze for these particular fans however this is simply because the category has been removed. The West Stand is still the same price as it was throughout 2017 and we feel the West Stand offers one of the best views in the Super League today.
It is important to remember that the West Stand Value category was always an experiment which after much deliberation the Club has decided not to move forward with.
The Club saw no significant uptake in new supporters in the West Stand Value but rather supporters downgrading from regular West Stand and South Stand tickets from the 2016 season.
In addition, we’ve received feedback from the Stadium and fans in other areas of the Stadium that West Stand Value Season Ticket holders have often sat in the West Stand or even stood in the South Stand which, unfortunately, means this ticket category is no longer viable.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused for 2017 West Stand Value Season Ticket holders and the rise in price they now face. We would encourage fans to go down the Direct Debit route which makes payments more manageable and spread out over a nine-month period.
But, we do feel that our 2018 Season Ticket prices offer fantastic value for money after freezing our prices, continuing our Family Ticket and introducing the Junior Devil Ticket which sees all under 11’s go FREE. We hope that you will still join us for the 2018 season.
To freeze our Season Ticket prices in 2018 on the back of a Challenge Cup semi-final and a 4th place regular season finish, we believe, shows how much the fans mean to us as a Club and only emphasise our ambition to move this Club forward as one.

Salford Red Devils 4-30 St Helens

Salford fell to defeat in their final game of the 2017 season, despite a valiant effort with twelve men for 45 minutes, against a St Helens side who confirmed their place in the top four.
Ryan Lannon was sent from the field towards the end of the first half but the Red Devils dug deep and only trailed by eight points heading into the final twenty minutes. However, the extra man eventually paid dividend for St Helens who ran out 4-30 winners.
It was actually Salford who took the lead early on as a flowing move saw the ball shipped from left to right before full-back Niall Evalds hit the ball at pace and stepped his way over. However, Gareth O’Brien’s conversion attempt was unsuccessful.
While it was the Red Devils full-back who scored early on it was Saints’ full-back – and mid-season signing – Ben Barba created their first. Barba weaved his way around the Salford defence and Mark Percival finished in the corner but the centre couldn’t add the extras.
Manu Vatuvei went over in the corner with ten minutes of the half remaining but video referee Phil Bentham ruled it out as Vatuvei was adjudged to have knocked-on in the build-up. Unfortunately, for the Red Devils St Helens went down the other end and scored as Alex Walmsley barged his way over from close-range.
Moments late Walmsley looked to lead with the elbow which sent Jordan Walne off for a concussion check and forward couldn’t return to the field for the remainder of the game. However, James Child only put the incident on report. But, he did make the decision to send Lannon from the field a minute later for a late challenge on Theo Fages following the Frenchman’s kick.
After the interval, the Red Devils defended bravely keeping St Helens out for seven goal-line defensive sets and kept in touching distance until the final twenty minutes. Zeb Taia managed to break Salford’s resilience as he spun over the line. With ten minutes left Walmsley forced his way over for a second before Barba jinked his way over to seal St Helens’ place in the top four.
Salford: Evalds, Bibby, Welham, Sa’u, Vatuvei; Lui, O’Brien; Murray, Tomkins, Hauraki, Murdoch-Masila, Jones, McCarthy. Interchanges: Kopczak, Brining, Lannon, J. Walne.
Saints: Barba, Makinson, Morgan, Percival, Grace; Fages, Richardson; Douglas, Roby, Thompson, Taia, Knowles, Wilkin. Interchanges: Smith, Walmsley, McCarthy-Scarsbrook, Peyroux.

Factfile – Salford Red Devils vs St Helens

Ahead of our final game of the 2017 season here are all the facts before we host St Helens tomorrow night.
Head-to-head
The Red Devils failed to win a game against St Helens between June 2010 and June 2015 – a run of 11 games however Salford have managed to overcome Saints twice in their last four meetings.
Both of the Red Devils victories since 2016 have come at the AJ Bell Stadium with Ian Watson’s men earning a convincing 44-10 victory last season before edging out Saints 22-14 in March, also.
In nine games between September 2011 and June 2015 Salford scored a combined total of just 76 points against St Helens but have since managed to rack up a combined total of 110 points in their last four meetings; scoring 20 or more in each.
Against their former club
There are three Red Devils who have enjoyed stints with St Helens – Mark Flanagan, Josh Jones and Gareth O’Brien.
Flanagan, who is still sidelined, featured for Saints between 2012 and 2015 and played in their 2014 Super League Grand Final triumph. Jones was also on the field for St Helens’ 14-6 victory over Wigan and played almost 100 games for this week’s opponents before switching codes.
O’Brien spent a short spell on loan in 2013 from Warrington and kicked 25 goals in seven appearances for the Merseyside team.
Saints have two former Red Devils and both come in the halves. French half-back Theo Fages made the move to the Totally Wicked Stadium in 2016 from Salford while Matty Smith moved to the AJ Bell Stadium from Saints, following a loan spell, in 2011 and now finds himself back with St Helens after a four-year stint with Wigan Warriors.
Try-scorers
If there’s one Red Devil who enjoys playing against St Helens its full-back Niall Evalds who has notched an impressive seven tries in his last four appearances against them.
Evalds crossed for two in the 25-24 defeat at the Totally Wicked Stadium as well as scoring a hat-trick in the visit to St Helens last season. The last time Saints visited the AJ Bell Evalds was also on the scoresheet grabbing a brace.
However, Saints have their own full-back come half-back who enjoys coming up against the Red Devils in Jonny Lomax. Lomax, who has scored three in his last two outings, has also scored in each of his last three appearances against Salford.

Salford Red Devils 52-14 Huddersfield Giants

The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a dominant nine-try display against Huddersfield at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Kris Welham and Manu Vatuvei both crossed for braces while Tyrone McCarthy, Niall Evalds, Jake Bibby, Ben Murdoch-Masila and Josh Jones also got themselves on the scoresheet.
Ian Watson’s men got off to the perfect start as Welham latched onto a neat kick from Robert Lui to open the try-scoring on a fruitful afternoon for the Red Devils. Gareth O’Brien had kicked a penalty goal in the opening minutes to get the scoreboard ticking.
After scoring his first Super League try for Salford last weekend McCarthy made it two in two games at the AJ Bell Stadium forcing his way over from close-range. Fellow mid-season signing Vatuvei powered his way over shortly after scoring his first out wide.
Murdoch-Masila was a constant thorn in the Giants side and his quick hands put centre Welham over the line for his second. Salford made it two tries in as many minutes as Evalds was the beneficiary of some smart link-up play between Lui and Murdoch-Masila.
Jermaine McGillvary scored in the final minute of the first half however the Red Devils went into the break with a 26-point lead.
However, any chance of a Giants fightback was stopped in the opening minute of the second half as Vatuvei managed to score following Junior Sa’u’s pass. Jake Bibby, who was a late replacement for Greg Johnson, scored with an acrobatic finish in the corner shortly after.
Oliver Roberts managed to spin his way over but it didn’t slow down the Red Devils dominance as O’Brien added another penalty goal before Murdoch-Masila took three defenders over the line with him.
With five minutes remaining Jones rounded off the Salford scoring as he burrowed over after several offloads. Ryan Hinchcliffe scored late on for the Giants but it was a comfortable victory for the Red Devils.
Red Devils: Evalds, Bibby, Welham, Sa’u, Vatuvei; Lui, O’Brien; Kopczak, Tomkins, Hauraki, Murdoch-Masila, Jones, McCarthy. Interchanges: A.Walne, Brining, Lannon, J. Walne.
Giants: Rankin, McGillvary, Mellor, Turner, Ormsby; Gaskell, Brough; Ikahihifo, Leeming, Ta’ai, Roberts, Ferguson, Hinchcliffe. Interchanges: O’Brien, Rapira, Lawrence, Clough.

Flashback: Salford Red Devils 21-20 Huddersfield Giants

Ahead of this weekend’s Super 8s clash with Huddersfield we look back to a memorable yet narrow victory for the Red Devils over the Giants back in 2013.
Salford went into the game bottom of the pile in Super League however caretaker coach Alan Hunte managed to mastermind an upset against a Huddersfield side who’d started the season well.
The Red Devils managed to race into a 14-6 lead in the first-half. Shaun Lunt opened the scoring but on-loan debutant Lee Gaskell raced 40 metres to put the hosts ahead before Jodie Broughton and Ashley Gibson extended Salford’s lead.
Jermaine McGillvary went over just before the break to reduce the arrears however Hunte’s men regained their lead after the interval as Jordan James forced his way over.
The Giants notched back-to-back tries in quick succession through, then Giant, Craig Kopczak and Danny Brough to draw the scores level at 20-20 going into the closing stages. Brough did have the chance to put Huddersfield ahead but his conversion came back off the post.
However, Red Devils full-back Marc Sneyd stepped up and managed to kick a one-pointer to secure a victory for Salford and helped them earn just their second win of the season.
Despite the impressive result it would be one of just six victories for the Red Devils in the 2013 Super League season while the Giants would go on to win their first ever Super League League Leaders’ Shield.
The team that day: Sneyd, Murphy, Gibson, Gaskell, Broughton; Fages, Foran; Griffin, Godwin, Neal, Ashurst, Dixon, Wild. Interchanges: James, Boyle, Owen, Nero.
