Salford part company with chief executive Farish


Salford have parted company with chief executive Ed Farish just three months after he joined the club.

Farish only took over as chief executive with the Reds in February but owner Marwan Koukash has announced the Australian’s departure by mutual consent.

Koukash said: “Ed will be going back to Australia after a hand-over period.

“He will be replaced by someone with no rugby background, someone who has done business development for a blue chip company for the last 20 years.

“I made it clear when I took over that I would give people chances and I don’t care who it is: a cleaner, an administrator, a player or a coach. If someone is not doing it, we need to move them on.

“But Ed has not been sacked, I just think it is for the best.”

Salford were thrashed 68-10 by Warrington at the weekend and Farish is expected to be the first of a number of changes on and off the field at the Salford City Stadium ahead of next season.
