At 34 he brings a wealth of experience to the Salford pack as they will look to go one better than their stunning run to the playoff semi-finals in 2022.
“It feels unbelievable to be back at Salford after all these years,” Sidlow said. “Paul (Rowley) and Kurt (Haggerty) have assembled an outstanding squad and I love the brand of Rugby League the team is playing.
“I feel humbled and privileged to be brought into the squad and can’t wait to get in with all the players and start the hard work it takes to be a Super League player again.
“I’m only a couple of games away from 100 appearances at the club so I’m looking forward to that and completing some unfinished business.”
With the addition of Sidlow for 2023, the Red Devils pack now includes a good blend of youth and experience and Head Coach Paul Rowley is excited to get working with the forward.
“im really pleased to welcome Adam to the team. He’s an experienced player and fantastic professional to further enhance the standards being set by the boys.
“Adam’s leadership, skillset and character make him a great fit within our group.”
Salford Director of Rugby Ian Blease is also looking forward to having Sidlow as part of their group.
“When I first met Adam, it became apparent that he had a clear passion for the club and couldn’t wait to sign and come back.
“He talked about showing the fans how he has developed his game and matured over the years and wants to prove he is a first rate front rower.”
