Salford confirm signing of Dec Patton

Salford have signed Warrington half-back Dec Patton on a one-year deal.

The 25-year-old made more than 100 appearances for the Wolves, including their Challenge Cup final win over St Helens at Wembley in 2019, but was not offered a new contract at the end of the 2020 season.

Salford coach Richard Marshall, who knows Patton well from his time as Warrington assistant, said: “When I arrived here, I identified some key areas where we needed to strengthen and this signing helps us achieve that.

“Dec’s versatility means he will bring greater depth to our squad in a number of areas.

“He’s a player who I’ve worked with previously and continued to monitor ever since.

“I am confident that he will thrive in our group and we can help him unlock his full potential.”

Patton, who was in Warrington’s beaten Grand Final team in 2018, said: “I’m over the moon to be joining Salford.

“It’s a great setup here. I know Rich and some of lads already but now I’m enjoying getting to know some new faces. This is a fresh start and I’m really looking forward to it.”

  1. Can’t believe Warrington have let dec patten go what a talent this lad is I am a Wigan fan but for me letting dec go will be a big mistake and will come back and get you it’s happened so many times at Wigan this i said last year to a few of the Wigan lads I know that if I was rads I’d have him at Wigan and I’m sure if he tony smith was still coaching at wire he would be outstanding now as a stand off Warrington have some brilliant young lads but they are not getting a chance as they just want keep paying big money for players that are passed it.
