“Now the dust has slightly settled” – Marc Sneyd releases statement following shock Salford return

SL team of the week

On Friday afternoon, Salford shocked the world when they announced the signing of Marc Sneyd on a three-year deal from Hull FC enabling the former Salford man to finish his career where it all started.

However, an undoubted legend at Hull FC having claimed back-to-back Lance Todd trophies in Hull FC’s historic Wembley wins over Warrington and Wigan in 2016 and 2017, finally moving on after seven great years with the Black and Whites will have been hard for the scrum-half.

With over a thousand points to his name as a Hull player, Salford will be hoping he can produce similar performances next year and beyond alongside new halfback partner Brodie Croft who arrives in Super League with a point to prove himself. The duo could inspire the Red Devils to success in 2022 and it’ll be interesting to see how the pair fare as a combination. It could be an exciting few years at the AJ Bell Stadium or wherever the club end up as the ongoing stadium saga persists in Salford.

Sneyd will no doubt share that excitement, but it will be balanced by a heavy heart as he bids farewell to his home of seven seasons. He subsequently took to Twitter to address the situation: “Now the dust has slightly settled, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Hull FC from players, coaches, backroom staff and fans.

“It’s been an incredible time living in Hull and some amazing memories and accomplishments that I will remember forever. Time for the next chapter back where it all began and a move back around the families.

“Appreciate all the texts and messages from the last 24 hours. Thank you.”
