Salford Red Devils tie down Evalds and Walton

Jason Walton and Niall Evalds have become the latest Salford Red Devils star to sign a new contract with the club, after they signed new three-year deals with the Devils, beginning next year.

Walton joined the Devils from Batley last season and, along with Adam and Jordan Walne, Greg Johnson and Josh Griffin, he and Evalds become the most recent young players that the club have secured the long-term services of.

Head coach Iestyn Harris said: “The fact that we are not only showing we are capable of holding on to our bright prospects, but also convincing them that this is the place to be to further their careers, shows that we are going about things the right way.

“Mixing this blend of young, fresh talent and world class experience that we are putting together next season is something that should certainly excite our supporters, and further underline the commitment Marwan Koukash has to make Salford Red Devils one of the forces in the game.”
