Salford CEO Martin Vickers has confirmed that Garreth Carvell is joining Salford, as the club’s new welfare officer.
Carvell will continue to play for Featherstone Rovers, but will link up with the Red Devils every Monday.
The role was perviously held by Paul Highton, and is used to provide a link between the board room and the players.
The Red Devils are depleted due to injury and suspension for the game against Castleford this weekend.
Vickers insists that a committed team will be taking to the field.
“We may be depleted but the 17 we field will still be strong and competitive,” he told the Manchester Evening News.
“This is an important game for us.”
