Legendary Salford Red Devils Coach Lance Todd has been named as the man who will lead the ‘Willows Wall’ Heritage Team bringing an end to the voting.
Lance Todd became Head Coach of Salford Red Devils in 1928 and the Club went from close to folding to becoming a real force under his management. Todd led the Club to their only ever Challenge Cup triumph with their 7-4 victory over Barrow at Wembley.
During the 1930’s – in addition to the Challenge Cup victory – Salford Red Devils also won three League Championships, five Lancashire League Championships and four Lancashire Cups.
He remained with Salford up until 1940 and would tragically die in a motor accident on 14th November 1942. Todd represented New Zealand and Lancashire and enjoyed spells with Wigan and Dewsbury during his playing career.
