Salford Red Devils have announced that prop Alex Gerrard has signed a two-year contract extension.
Gerrard arrived from Leigh Centurions in January and has gone on to be a quite a regular name on Paul Rowley’s team sheet, featuring eight times in the league and in Salford’s only Betfred Challenge Cup outing of 2022 against Wigan Warriors.
Speaking on his contract extension, Gerrard said: “I’m really pleased to be a part of what we’re building here. The environment at Salford is great, they’re a good group of lads.
“I want to continue to contribute to the team positively and improve on my performances week in, week out.”
Head coach Paul Rowley commented: “Alex has been fantastic on and off the pitch. He’s an experienced and clever player and is well respected and valued by all the coaches and the playing group.
“I’m really pleased that he’s extended and look forward to him contributing positively to the group.”
Director of rugby and operations Ian Blease added: “Alex has been a brilliant addition to the squad since arriving in January and it’s great to see him thriving at Salford.
“He is an important part of our pack and we’re delighted to have him with us for another two years.”
