Walton signs fresh Salford contract


18th July 2014

Former Batley Bulldogs centre Jason Walton is the latest player to be given a new deal by Salford Red Devils.

The 24-year-old was among the 12 new faces unveiled by the new-look Red Devils last September and today he signed a three-year contract extension.

The announcement follows the new deals handed to Jordan and Adam Walne, Josh Griffin and Walton's former Batley team-mate Greg Johnson 24 hours earlier.

Salford 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 (owner) Marwan Koukash has to make Salford Red Devils one of the forces in the game."
