Marc Sneyd’s last words as a Hull FC man as details of shock Salford transfer emerge

Marc Sneyd’s shock transfer to the Salford Red Devils was confirmed today as the halfback signed a three-year contract – with no fee included in the deal, despite the 30-year-old still having a year left on his playing contract.

The former Salford number seven started his career at the AJ Bell Stadium and now looks destined to end it there too after winning the Challenge Cup twice with Hull FC in his six years spent on Humberside.

Sneyd registered over 1,200 points for the Black and Whites in that period, scooping up two Lance Todd trophies in the process of his Wembley exploits.

And, the 30-year-old paid tribute to his now former team.

“I’m leaving the club with a heavy heart, but this is the right time and opportunity for me to return home with my young family,” Sneyd said.

“The opportunity with Salford provides us with security and the chance to be back home closer to our friends and family, especially for the children, whilst it is an exciting opportunity to return to where my career began over a decade ago.

“Everyone at Hull FC has been excellent with me and very understanding of the situation and I am leaving the club with some fantastic memories, some great friends and I genuinely wish them all the success in the future.”

He added, “The Challenge Cup wins are obviously the standout memories for me, and I am confident the club will have those opportunities again soon, whilst I’m now relishing the challenge ahead at Salford and getting back to where it all started for me.”

Sneyd’s move to Salford has kicked off a chain of events, with Leeds Rhinos’ Luke Gale set for a move to the MKM Stadium as halfback replacement.
