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.”
Cockermouth School were also in the East Stand as flag bearers at Friday night’s game and they also took part in a half-time lap of honour.
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.
To get involved or simply enquire about the scheme please E-Mail CommunityTickets@SalfordRedDevils.net, phone 0161 786 1570, or contact the Club or Salford Red Devils Foundation directly.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Red Devils Ink Deal with Printing Giants

Salford Red Devils are delighted to announce a partnership with Printerland – the UK’s largest supplier of printers and consumables.
Printerland branding has been visible on the East Stand of the AJ Bell Stadium for the past two seasons and this new deal will further enhance that as the Red Devils official website will now carry the company’s branding on it.
By becoming Official Website Sponsor of the Red Devils, Printerland will have access to the many thousands of fans who visit the site to catch up on the latest stories and happenings in the Betfred Super League.
Red Devils’ Managing Director Ian Laithwaite said: “Joining forces with a company of the size and stature of Printerland continues to show our determination to drive our own brand forward. The fact they sell one in every three laser printers bought in the UK should give an indication of their importance.
“Printerland are active within rugby union and our community already so bringing them into rugby league is a great move for both parties. We look forward to working with them as we move forward.”
Printerland Managing Director James Kight added: “We have a long-standing passion for all things ‘Rugby’ and our new sponsorship deal with Salford is a great addition to aid our commitment to encourage the local community to take part in the sport.”
“We’re looking forward to a new partnership with a club with such a great history and working to help drive success in its exciting future ahead.”

Three talking points – Salford Red Devils 12-40 Wigan Warriors

Following defeat in our opening Betfred Super League game of the season we take a look at three talking points from the game.

Josh Wood’s performance 

Hookers Logan Tomkins and Kriss Brining both missed out on Friday night’s game through injuries however youngster Josh Wood stepped up to the plate and was brilliant at acting half-back.
The Wigan-born hooker made just his 15th first team appearance for Salford and put in a very solid performance with his distribution being almost perfect while he offered even more steel in the defence of the forward pack.
While Tomkins is expected to be back sooner rather than later The Red Devils will certainly be okay at acting half-back with Wood performing as he did in Friday evening’s game.

The forward battle 

Heading into Friday’s game Head Coach Ian Watson eluded to the physicality and in-your-face attitude the Wigan Warriors head into games with and knew it would be a tough battle in the middles.
However, the Salford Red Devils forwards stood up well against The Warriors with Captain Lee Mossop getting through some hard yards against his former team, Club Captain Weller Hauraki worked tirelessly as always, and Tyrone McCarthy and Josh Jones looked dangerous in the back-row.
Of course, key forward Mark Flanagan had to pull out prior to kick-off due to a virus and the pack will no doubt be even stronger when The Red Devils see the return of Flash.

The East Stand

Friday’s game against Wigan saw the East Stand of the AJ Bell Stadium house Salford supporters who have taken part in our new community and charity scheme.
A handful of local charities, schools and clubs were present for our opening Betfred Super League game of the season and, despite the result, enjoyed the match.
Salford Red Devils Director Andrew Rosler tweeted: “If the East Stand isn’t too busy tonight don’t despair or mock, it’s the first time we’ve tried this initiative. As the season progresses the initiative will grow as will our investment and bond within the Community.”
Remember, if you know, or are involved with, a charity, club or community group and would like to get involved contact the club directly or email communitytickets@salfordreddevils.net.
