Aspey given two-month trial by Salford

Young hooker Connor Aspey has been given a two-month first team trial by Salford.

The 18-year-old was given a similar deal at the start of 2019 and featured in a pre-season friendly, before joining the Red Devils’ reserves setup ahead of 2020.

He remained in and around the senior side following the cancellation of the reserves competition due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and was rewarded with a first team debut against Hull KR in October this season, coming off the bench in a 24-22 loss.

He will now spend January and February with Richard Marshall’s first team, after having his trial funded by the club’s Supporters’ Trust in the aim of earning a permanent contract.

“Being part of the first team environment for so much of last year and making my Super League debut was a great experience,” said Aspey. “I’m really grateful for this opportunity to prove myself and want to thank the Supporters’ Trust for their support of me.

“Now I can’t wait to get stuck into training and show what I’m capable of.”

Salford director of rugby and operations Ian Blease added: “We’re very thankful to the Supporters’ Trust, for their continued support of our player pathways. After developing through those structures, Connor experienced the intensity of Super League for the first time last season and has now been given the opportunity to prove himself to our new head coach.

“The assistance from our Supporters’ Trust to give him that opportunity, shows their commitment to our youth players, and I would encourage all fans to join them as a result.”
