Adam Sidlow’s reasons for Salford Red Devils return including personal accolade

On Friday night, Salford announced a really impressive signing to boost their chances in 2023 after a strong campaign in 2022 as they reached the Super League semi-finals.

It came in the shape of former player Adam Sidlow. The prop has been brilliant for Leigh Centurions over the last two seasons.

In 2021, as the Centurions got relegated, he was a standout and scored plenty of tries. Meanwhile, in 2022 he spearheaded their promotion but he won’t be around at Leigh as the Centurions make their Super League return.

But why has Sidlow made the move back to Salford?

Speaking on the club’s website, he spoke about how the brand of rugby implemented by Paul Rowley was tempting as was the chance to complete a personal accolade at the AJ Bell Stadium: “It feels unbelievable to be back at Salford after all these years – and I have to pinch myself sometimes. Paul and Kurt have assembled an outstanding squad and I love the brand of Rugby League the team is playing.

“I feel humbled and privileged to be brought into the squad and can’t wait to get in with all the players and start the hard work it takes to be a Super League player again. Personally, I’m only a couple of games from 100 appearances at the club, so I’m looking forward to that and completing some unfinished business.”

Meanwhile, Head Coach, Paul Rowley also added: “I’m really pleased to welcome Adam to the team. He’s an experienced player and a fantastic professional to further enhance the standards being set by the boys.

“The coaches and I felt that Adam’s leadership, skillset and character make him a great fit within our group.”
