Salford centre Kris Welham to join Featherstone

Featherstone have signed centre Kris Welham from Salford on a one-year deal, with the option of a second year from 2021.

The 33-year-old has made more than 300 career appearances for Hull KR, Bradford and Salford, scoring more than 160 tries. He played for Salford in the 2019 Super League Grand Final and 2020 Challenge Cup final.

Featherstone coach James Webster said: “I have been lucky enough to have known Kris since we played together at Hull KR.

“His try scoring record over a career that has spanned close to 15 years shows the quality he possesses.

“Even when highlighting his fantastic try scoring record, it is his attitude and effort within the clubs that he has represented that will always be his biggest asset.

“He is a fantastic club man that will always play his heart out for the shirt and those that come and spend their hard-earned cash every week to watch the sport.”

Welham added: “I’m excited to get started, it’s going to be a new challenge for me and it’s going to be something different, but I’m really looking forward to getting going in 2021.

“My main goal for the rest of this year is to give my all to Salford until my contract ends there and once my contract starts at Featherstone my sole focus will be on doing my best for this club.”
