Wealthy businessman reveals stunning plan to revolutionise Super League club

It’s fair to say that rugby league is not inundated with wealthy backers – even in Super League.

Whilst the likes of Leeds Rhinos, Wigan Warriors, Warrington Wolves, Catalans Dragons, St Helens and Hull FC all spend big in order to get the best facilities and the best players, that luxury cannot be afforded by those other team that remain in the top flight.

The likes of Wakefield Trinity and Salford Red Devils are said to have the two lowest playing budgets in Super League but the success of the latter proves that money itself is not the be all and end all – though it is incredibly important.

That being said, Salford fans are currently keeping their fingers and toes crossed to ensure that the current plan of a wealthy businessman to take over both the club and the AJ Bell Stadium comes to fruition after a number of years in the wilderness.

Of course Red Devils supporters are going to be apprehensive given their last experience with a wealthy businessman, but Sebastian Gerrard certainly seems keen to put the club on an incredibly stable footing.

Gerrard, who has been quiet on social media for the past few months, tweeted: “Hello my fellow Salfordians! Apologies for the lack of updates but for now no news is good news. Everyone is working hard to get this done. A big thank you to all. Your support is both a great help and appreciated. To the doubter’s. Run.”

Gerrard had previously tweeted: “Good evening Salford! Over the last couple of month’s my team and I have been working hard to put a offer together to buy the Salford community stadium. Aka the AJ Bell. I would like to secure Salford Red Devils future and home. #keepitsalford . #TogetherStronger who’s with us?!?”

It appears as though Gerrard remains staunchly committed to the Salford cause and bringing the club the off-field footing that its current on-field success deserves.

It truly is an exciting time to be a Salford fan.
