Ben Nakubuwai | “I feel like I’m settling in”

Fijian international Ben Nakubuwai made his Betfred Super League debut in Friday’s game at Wakefield and admits nerves were there prior to kick-off.
Nakubuwai, who is still available for sponsorship, said: “It was pretty exciting and I was grateful for the opportunity.
“I was a bit nervous at the start but once I got into it I felt comfortable and ready to go – I loved it.
“I think a big thing for me when I first came in was adjusting to playing in these conditions I’m used to playing in warmer weather I guess once I adjusted to that I think it’s just up from there for me really.
The World Cup star made a big impact from the interchange bench as The Red Devils stood up against Wakefield’s forwards and Nakubuwai knows that this is part of the job.
“No matter who is in front of us we have to do our job.
“It doesn’t matter how big or small they are we’ve just got to keep going forward.”
Nakubuwai will be looking to cement a regular position in the squad in the coming weeks as he feels he is now settled at Salford following his move.
Nakubuwai said: “It’s a good Club.
“It’s my first year here and they’ve all been pretty welcoming yeah I couldn’t have asked for anything more I feel like I’m settling in both on and off the field.”
If you’d be interested in sponsoring Ben Nakubuwai for the 2018 season contact Fiona.Woods@SalfordRedDevils.net.

Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust to sponsor Josh Wood and Daniel Murray

The Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust will sponsor Josh Wood and Daniel Murray for the 2018 season after a successful crowd funding campaign.

Dave Campbell, Chairman of the Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust, said: “We’re just trying to support the Club in as many ways as we possibly can while the new structure are finding their feet.
“It’s really good that we can support a player like Josh who has come through the ranks here at Salford and this is now potentially his breakthrough season.
“Then Daniel Murray has been a real fan favourite and come through the Warrington system and again it could be a big year for him as well so for us to club together and sponsor two players is great.”
Salford Red Devils CEO, Ian Blease, said: “When I met some of the starter members of the Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust around a year ago this was the long-term vision we had.
“It’s great to for the Salford RLFC Supporters’ Trust to support the Club so closely and sponsor two of the younger members of the squad is brilliant.
“We hope this is the start of a fruitful and progressive relationship between ourselves and the Supporters’ Trust which will help drive Salford Red Devils forward in our new era.”
Campbell added: “On the crowd fund we raised over £3000 which we’re putting straight back into the Club via player sponsorship.
“The Devil Talk forum will also sponsor the interchange boards as they helped us and shared a thread on their forum promoting our fundraising campaign.
“This has been an opportunity for fans to be a player sponsor because not all fans have a thousands in their back pocket.
“Everyone who has contributed has now gone into a draw to pick up some of the benefits such as the players shirt and players appearances.
“We’ve had people donating £10, people donating £100 and one person who used to be involved with the Club donating over £1000.
“Over 60 fans have donated in total who have donated and we’re going to keep it running for a few weeks and we’ll buy a few more perks to add to the draw.”

Tyrone McCarthy visits sponsor Arlec Property Services

Arlec Property Services will proudly sponsor Salford Red Devils forward Tyrone McCarthy for the 2018 season and the Irish international went down to see Gary Smeaton and his team before the New Year.   
Gary Smeaton said: “Tyrone came down to Heywood and he had a good look round inside and outside we had some photographs and a chat – it was good.
“He said he might even be looking at some of the lads getting some work done which would be good for my company as part of being Tyrone’s sponsor since he arrived at Salford.
“He got the high vis on and the hard hat for health and safety but nothing other than that – he was great though,” Smeaton joked.
Tyrone McCarthy said: “Gary and his team were all fantastic and I really enjoyed going to see them on site.
“I’d like to thank Gary and everyone at Arlec Property Services for sponsoring me again for the 2018 season and I hope to return the favour with some good performances on the field.”
Smeaton added: “Yeah I think Tyrone will have another good season. If I’m honest I wouldn’t mind seeing him with the captaincy to be honest I think he’s got a good voice on him.
“But as long as he gets a regular runout like he did last season he’ll certainly prosper.
“We’ve lost a few big players but we’ve also recruited well so I’m optimistic for the upcoming season and I do think we can challenge at the top end of the table.”

Dog and Partridge set to sponsor Niall Evalds in 2018

Salford Red Devils full-back and 2017 top try-scorer will once again be sponsored by local pub The Dog and Partridge for the upcoming 2018 season. 
Dennis Riley, owner of the Dog and Partridge, said: “I sponsored Niall Evalds last season and obviously at the beginning Niall wasn’t in the first team but he eventually earned himself a chance and broke into the side which was good for me.
“Niall ended up as our top try-scorer at the end of the season and you know he come through the ranks here at Salford and I’m looking forward to sponsoring him again and hopefully he does well for me next season.
“I’m hoping Niall can kick on and keep his place in the side but that’s up to Ian Watson but Niall’s versatile and can play on the wing or in the centres as well but I like him at full-back.
“But at the end of the day it’s all competition for places and I’ll keep sponsoring Niall. I like the lad a lot he’s quiet and keeps himself to himself – I’ve been trying to get him down to the pub for a drink but I don’t think it’s going to happen.
Salford Red Devils CEO, Ian Blease, said: “We’re delighted Dennis and the Dog and Partridge are involved with the Club again in 2018.
“Dennis is a massive Red Devils fan and one of the most recognisable Salford supporters and it means a lot that he’s supporting the Club in this fashion again.”
There are still a handful of Salford Red Devils first team players available for sponsorship in 2o18. If you’re interested in sponsoring a player for 2018 or exploring other sponsorship, advertising or corporate routes please contact Fiona.Woods@salfordreddevils.net.

Salford launch new fan initiative with Logan Tomkins and Dr Terry Thorne

Salford Red Devils launch fantastic new initiative for fans who want to get that personal touch with players via our new fan sponsorship package.
The new package is designed for fans who want to build a connection with Salford first team players but don’t need the notoriety or brand awareness that a business sponsor would want.
The package includes a signed personalised 2018 replica shirt with your players name and number on, you will be invited to the media day and have the opportunity to join the team photo alongside the 2018 squad, their name mentioned alongside their player in the matchday programmes and a discount on hospitality prices for one game of their choosing during 2018 as a fan sponsor privilege.
Dr Terry Thorne, who watched his first game sixty years ago as Salford lost to St Helens at The Willows in 1957, has become our first fan sponsor and has been paired with Red Devils hooker Logan Tomkins who he has already sponsored for two previous seasons.
Terry and Logan struck up a friendship due to their joint love of birds of prey and have both been hawking together on numerous occasions with Terry now a good friend of the family.
Thorne said: “It started when Logan was a youngster we were members of the same hawking Club we both keep birds of prey and I met him when he was at Wigan Warriors.
“We became friends and when he signed for Salford I continued to watch his career develop and I started to sponsor Logan but it’s a lot more than that we’re friends as well. I remember his daughter being born, I know his partner Heather and I know his whole family – it’s been a great experience.”
Salford hooker Tomkins said: “Myself and Terry struck up a connection because of our love of birds of prey and hawking but it’s become a lot more than that.
“Our families are really close and I really consider him a top bloke and a good friend. I offered to look after his birds recently when he was taken into hospital.
“I’d like to thank Terry for the continued support throughout my career and for the sponsorship heading into 2018.”
Regarding the fan sponsorship, Thorne said: “It’s definitely worth the money without a doubt.
“I’ve watched other sponsors over the few years I’ve been doing it now and I’ve seen them develop this relationship with their player and I don’t know what it’s like at other clubs but here you do really find a connection with the player.
“I’d recommend it to everybody for such a reasonable amount of money you are actually involved in watching that player develop and you can be a part of their development and career.”
Salford Red Devils hooker, Logan Tomkins, said: “The initiative is a great one from the Club and I hope it gives more Salford supporters the opportunity to build personal relationships with a player of their choosing.”
Terry is delighted with the direction of the Club at the moment and is delighted to continue to support the team and Logan for the foreseeable future.
Thorne said: “I’m so happy with where the Club is at currently the people behind the scenes are all brilliant and working hard – Ian Blease is doing a terrific job as CEO.
“I remember times in the old days where we couldn’t raise a team and now we’re riding high. I think a lot of the young supporters maybe expect too much sometimes we’re in such a good position in comparison with years gone by.
“Salford Red Devils are definitely going places.”
Any fans interested in fan sponsorship for 2018 should contact Fiona.Woods@SalfordRedDevils.net
There is a limited timeframe in which to register interest in this fantastic new initiative with our Media Day being set for mid-January.
