Salford snap up Gibson

Salford City Reds have completed the signing of Ashley Gibson from Leeds Rhinos on a one-year deal.

The 23-year-old joins St Helens scrum-half Matty Smith at The Willows for the Reds and the club is widely expected to announce the signing of Ryan Boyle from Castleford in the near future.

Director of Football Steve Simms said: “Ashley is an experienced  Super League player who can play a number of positions and he’s a fast outside back.

“He’s played for England and he’s going to give us some great options in our back line. We are looking forward to him being a big part of our 2010 season.”

Gibson played his junior rugby at Stanningley before joining Leeds. He has made 32 appearances for the club scoring 13 tries, although he missed most of the 2007 season after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament.
