Leigh prop Adam Sidlow will return to Salford in 2023 after signing a two-year deal with the Super League club.

The 34-year-old first donned the Salford shirt in 2008, making 82 appearances for the club in his four-year stint before moving on to Bradford.

Sidlow has played a key role this year in helping Leigh gain promotion to Super League from the Championship.

Sidlow said: “It feels unbelievable to be back at Salford after all these year. I have to pinch myself sometimes.

“Paul (Rowley) and Kurt (Haggerty) have assembled an outstanding squad and I love the brand of rugby league the team is playing.

“I feel humbled and privileged to be brought into the squad and can’t wait to get in with all the players and start the hard work it takes to be a Super League player again.

“Personally, I’m only a couple of games from 100 appearances at the club, so I’m looking forward to that and completing some unfinished business.”

Paul Rowley delighted to welcome Adam Sidlow back to Salford

Sidlow has made almost 350 career appearances for Widnes, Workington, Salford, Bradford, Toronto and Leigh.

Red Devils coach Paul Rowley said: “I’m really pleased to welcome Adam to the team. He’s an experienced player and a fantastic professional to further enhance the standards being set by the boys.

“The coaches and I felt that Adam’s leadership, skillset and character make him a great fit within our group.”

The Red Devils reached the Super League semi-finals this year, where they fell short to champions St Helens.
