Paul Rowley has added another name to his squad as he reinforces Salford Red Devils’ middle units.
They have signed the likes of Oliver Partington from Wigan Warriors and Sam Stone from Leigh Leopards.
Their latest signing has been former Leigh and Featherstone Rovers Ben Hellewell for 2023 after he spent two weeks on loan at the club in 2022.
It seems this and the versatility he showed in this spell was key to whey Rowley sought a permanent move with the Salford boss saying on the club website: “I’m really pleased to welcome Ben to Salford. Having joined us for a month earlier this year, Ben’s durability and versatility proved invaluable.
“The staff, players and myself enjoyed the passion and commitment he showed to the group and look forward to him being back.”
Ian Blease added: “I’m really happy we’ve been able to secure Ben’s services on a permanent basis.
“He’s a player who massively impressed us during his two-week loan spell in 2022 and will bring not just quality to the back-row, but an incredible work ethic – a vital attribute of any player in Paul Rowley’s squad. We are looking forward to welcoming Ben and getting to work ahead of 2023.”
Salford are looking like they’re in a strong position to build on their semi-final appearance in 2022.
