Harvey Livett makes Salford switch

Salford Red Devils have signed Harvey Livett ahead of the 2021 Betfred Super League season.

Livett joins from local rivals Warrington Wolves after spending the last four seasons in the first team at the Halliwell Jones Stadium. The 23-year-old has also enjoyed three loan spells with Rochdale Hornets and, more recently, spent time with Hull Kingston Rovers. 

On joining Salford, Livett said: “I’m looking forward to getting into pre-season and then proving what I can do on the pitch.

“Speaking to a few of the boys who I know here, this is a great place to be and next year’s going to be a big year for us.

“I worked with Rich [Richard Marshall], when I was coming through at Warrington, so I know what he’s about.

“He’s a good coach and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

Head Coach Richard Marshall added: “I have known Harvey since he was coming through the academy at Warrington.

“He’s an exciting, energetic player, who adds another dimension to our team.

“He has a lot of Super League experience for a player so young but is still determined to continue his development.”

Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, commented: “Harvey’s an ambitious young player, who we are really pleased to have join us 

“He’s already impressed with his performance at the elite level and is now looking to continue his progression. 

“Training alongside some of our senior players and being involved in the setup will give him the perfect opportunity.”
