Salford coach Ian Watson has signed a new two-year contract with the club.

The 43-year-old has been coaching the Red Devils since 2015, and led his hometown club to the Super League Grand Final last season.

Watson said: “I’m ambitious and I want to win things.

“To do that, you’ve got to build foundations and have them in place.

“The club are showing that they want to go in that direction.

“We can now tell players that we’re here for the next few years and invite them to come along for the adventure.”

Salford’s head of strength and conditioning Greg Brown has also penned a two-year deal with the club.

Red Devils director of rugby and operations, Ian Blease, said: “The is probably the most significant deal I’ve done in my time at the club.

“I truly believe we’ve got the best head coach in Super League and the best head of strength and conditioning.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do and getting those signatures means we can now plan with that foundation in place.

“There’s a real camaraderie in our backroom team and you can see that carry across to the players on the pitch, so securing these extensions was massive for the direction of the club.”
