8th July 2013

Salford City Reds have appointed banker David Matthews as their new chief executive.

Matthews, whose background is in commercial banking in the north west, began his new job at the City of Salford Stadium today, working alongside outgoing chief executive Ed Farish to ensure a smooth handover.

"I am hugely excited to get going on what is a serious and sizeable task," he said.

"There is enormous potential in the Salford rugby league club and it is my job to ensure that we provide solid and innovative back-up to the work Brian Noble and the coaching staff are doing on the field."
