Andrew Dixon joins Halifax on loan

Kingstone Press Championship club Halifax have signed Salford Red Devils’ former St Helens forward Andrew Dixon on a one-month loan.

The 24-year-old second-rower, who has made 102 Super League appearances, has been allocated a squad number by the Red Devils but is well down the pecking order for back-row spots at the AJ Bell Stadium.

“Andrew’s a quality Super League player,” said Halifax coach Richard Marshall. “He’s played a lot of games in some good set-ups at St Helens and Salford but he’s found himself on the fringes of selection at Salford and is looking for some game time.

“There were a couple of Super League clubs and a couple of Championship clubs chasing him so we’re happy he’s chosen to come here.”
