“I put my house on the line to keep the club going” – Super League club’s director calls on fan support

Salford Red Devils recently announced their intention to become community owned and have already raised £100,000 through their initiative.

It is a brilliant idea and has been spearheaded by Paul King who has opened up on what he has done for the club to keep them strong even using his own property as a guarantee on a loan.

“I’ve used my property as a guarantee on a loan basically to keep the club going. That’s what I’ve had to do and for me it’s always about buying time. It was about buying time when I first did it four or five years ago, it’s about buying time now,” he explained on BBC Radio Manchester.

He went on to call on the public to get behind the club so that they can achieve the potential they have:

“We now need the public, the people of Salford and the wider Greater Manchester area to buy shares in the club. It’s not just about that, it’s about 150 years of heritage and hopefully another 150 years to come.

“I’ve put my house on the line, I’ve done it with my heart and not my head more often than not.

“It isn’t just about that, it’s about bringing the club into the community and the community into the club and having a real dig as a community.

“If people don’t like it then they get a vote and they can get rid of me by all means, go for it.”
