Willows Wall | Heritage Team interchanges confirmed

The substitutes for the ‘Willows Wall’ Heritage Team have been confirmed with Gus Risman, Steve Blakeley, David Young and Ray Cashmere. 

Gus Risman was an integral part of the 1938 Challenge Cup winning side; the only time the Red Devils have ever won the trophy. Risman is a proud member of the Rugby League Hall of Fame with a statue of him, alongside four other Rugby League legends, outside Wembley Stadium.

Risman made 427 appearances for Salford scoring 143 tries, kicking 796 goals and racking up a mammoth 2021 points for the Red Devils.

Steve Blakeley featured for Salford between 1992-99 before re-joining the Club for another three years after a short stint with Warrington Wolves. Blakeley represented England against France and Wales whilst at Salford.

Welsh forward David Young joined Salford in 1991 winning 14 caps for Wales whilst at the Club and captained the Welsh National side in the 1995 Rugby League World Cup.

Ray Cashmere is the final interchange in the ‘Willows Wall’ Heritage Team after spending three successful years with the Red Devils between 2009 and 2011, making 72 appearances and crossing for five tries.

The voting for the coach of the ‘Willows Wall’ Heritage Team will be made live this afternoon in association with Salford Red Devils Foundation and Capricorn Security.
