LAUNCH OF SALFORD’S ‘BUILDING THE FUTURE’ BLUEPRINT

Off the back of its launch during our community spotlight week, Salford Red Devils are excited to kickstart our ‘Building the Future’ (BTF) blueprint. 

The launch of BTF will create exciting partnerships with community clubs and schools, with the aim to promote the club and the sport of rugby league in general.

There are a total of seven communities clubs involved in BTF – Salford City Roosters, Langworthy Reds, Folly Lane, Cadishead Rhinos, Bury Broncos, Westhoughton Lions and South Trafford Raiders.

Each club has been designated a number of player ambassadors, who will throughout the season come down to training sessions to work with the community clubs, with head coach Richard Marshall and assistant head coach Danny Orr also getting involved.

Salford Red Devils Foundation have and will play an important role in BTF, offering England Talent Pathway (ETP) sessions to kids in the area, amongst other opportunities.

As well as community club involvement, BTF will also work in conjunction with schools across Greater Manchester with benefits like player visits and curriculum support.

Speaking on the launch of BTF, Salford Red Devils director Paul Trainor said: “I am delighted with the launch of the Building the Future strategy, which will create exciting partnerships with community clubs and schools to promote the club and the sport of rugby league.

“At the heart of this strategy is increasing participation and engagement with rugby league, whilst providing opportunities for the best talent from across the region to move onto a pathway to represent the club in Super League. The club, working alongside the Salford Red Devils Foundation, is excited to work with our community clubs and schools to deliver on our 4 key themes of the strategy – Engagement, Inspiration, Performance, Relationships.

“I am particularly excited to see our School Partner programme, where schools across Greater Manchester can benefit from coaching, player visits, training for school staff, curriculum support, access to our ‘School of the Month’ competition as well as other benefits. Headteachers will receive more details through an email in the next few days.”

Director of rugby and operations, Ian Blease said: “Our current focus is to give as much recourse as we can to our hard working and talented community clubs and to help nurture Salford’s talented youngsters, whilst making a positive impact through the quality and commitment of our delivery.

Salford Red Devils are a club to be proud of and this is a clear indication of planning for the future and recognising the single most important part of any club, which is the community.”

Head of rugby, talent and pathways, Paul Rowley, added: “The direction and focus of any business is a reflection of its leaders and in Paul King, the board and Ian Blease there is a clear and passionate directive to enhance the relationships with community clubs and ensure more opportunities for the young people of Salford.

“The experience and talent within our community is very evident, and in the short time I’ve been involved it’s been great to have genuine chats about all things rugby with individuals at each club.”

Salford Red Devils Foundation director Neil Blackburn added: “After delivering the ETP programme for the past number of years, the foundation has ensured local talent has been given the platform to showcase their abilities under the Red Devils’ banner.

With the launch of the new BTF strategy, the programme of delivery is revitalised and extended to further enhance Salford Red Devils’ reach within the local community and Greater Manchester wide. It is an exciting time to be an aspiring young athlete in the Salford area and I cannot wait for our team to get back into the community delivering engaging, safe and fun physical activities.”

Salford Red Devils and Foundation give our FREE community club Season Tickets

Ahead of last weekend’s opening home game of the Betfred Super League season against London Broncos, Salford Red Devils and Salford Red Devils Foundation were out at local community clubs giving out FREE Season Tickets.
Salford Red Devils players such as Joey Lussick, Jansin Turgut, Ben Nakubuwai and Daniel Murray visited local community clubs such as Langworthy Reds, Salford Roosters, Folly Lane ARLFC and Cadishead Rhinos giving out FREE season tickets to their youth players for the 2019 season.
Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, said: “It is absolutely crucial that Salford Red Devils have strong, positive and working relationships with every one of our local community clubs.
“These youngsters are clearly interested in Rugby League and it is up to us to give them the platform to watch top-class Super League and give them something to aspire to.
“Some of these kids could be the next generation of Salford Red Devils players or fans and it is important that they have links with this fantastic Club as early as possible and giving them a free 2019 Season Ticket is the perfect way to do that.
“We are looking forward to welcoming a number of youngsters to the AJ Bell Stadium this season and we’re confident they will enjoy their experience and begin an affinity with the Red Devils!”
Salford Red Devils Foundation Manager, Neil Blackburn, said: “It was great for the Foundation to get out to the local community clubs and give out free Salford Red Devils Season Tickets.
“It is key for the Salford Red Devils Foundation to maintain strong relationships with our community clubs and engage with them on a regular basis. Last week was a perfect example of the great work the Foundation continue to do in the community.
“For us, seeing as many children at the game as possible each week is the aim and we want to promote both the Club and Foundation far and wide.”
Salford Red Devils 2019 ‘Golden Tickets’ are also now in local schools which sees juniors allowed to attend a Red Devils game for free with an accompanying adult.

Community | Swinton Cubs & Beavers benefit from Community Ticket offer

Earlier this season the Salford Red Devils, in conjunction with the Salford Red Devils Foundation, launched the new East Stand ‘Community Ticket’ initiative and the scheme is already proving popular with the local community.
Swinton Beavers and Cubs took up the ‘Community Ticket’ offer for Friday night’s win over Hull FC and had a fantastic experience watching the Red Devils run out victorious.
Swinton Beavers and Cubs engaged with the Salford Red Devils Foundation and utilised the innovative new ticket offer to help raise funds for the group.
The Beavers and Cubs came down to watch Friday’s game on the back of visiting the Salford Red Devils Foundation earlier in the week to have a tour and learn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
This tour and talk involved meeting first team players Robert Lui and Junior Sa’u at the AJ Bell Stadium and the Beavers and Cubs were delighted to meet both first teamers, talk to them and take pictures with them – even featuring on Junior Sau and the Club’s social media channels.
Pauline Mack said: “All the children had a wonderful time and the whole event was fantastic.”

Local community clubs such as Monton FC, Cadishead Rhinos and Salford City Roosters have all also taken advantage of this unique ticket offer retaining 50% of all sales to raise funds for their clubs.
JOIN these local community groups today by experiencing a Salford Red Devils fixture while raising money for YOUR good causes.
And, the other 50% goes into the Salford Red Devils Foundation to fund programmes such as Rising Stars player development, Offload Mental Health schemes, local community school visits and Salford Red Devils heritage projects. The whole community is the winner with this fantastic new initiative.
