Forward duo extend Salford stay


Salford forwards Josh Johnson and Ryan Lannon have signed two-year contract extensions with the Red Devils.

Johnson and Lannon, who both started their youth careers at Salford and re-joined the club from Hull KR during the 2019 season, were already under contract for 2021 but have now been secured until the end of 2023.

Salford coach Richard Marshall said: “These two players have already impressed me with their attitude and commitment to the club.

“They bring a lot to the team, especially in defence, so extending their contracts will bring some stability there.

“Both were involved with the club as youth players too, so hopefully seeing them continue to succeed at the elite level can help inspire some talented youngsters.”
