Dan Sarginson extends Salford stay

England international agrees two-year extension

England international Dan Sarginson has signed a contract extension with Salford Red Devils that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2023 Betfred Super League season.

Sarginson played a crucial role in Salford’s route to the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup Final but unfortunately had to miss the Wembley showcase due to contracting COVID-19. The Red Devils centre is part of Shaun Wane’s latest England Men’s squad.

On signing a contract extension, Sarginson said: “We’re building something special here, so it was an easy choice to sign for a few more years.

“The extensions of Lee [Mossop] and [Luke] Yatesy were massive for us and hopefully with us now tied in, it helps draw in other players.

“I was gutted to miss out on Wembley this year, so hopefully we can be in another major final next season and the Challenge Cup would be perfect.”

Director of Rugby and Operations, Ian Blease, said: “A lot of this season’s new additions had a big impact, but Dan has been a standout player within the competition as a whole. 

“Getting him secured has been one of our key targets and that’s why I was thrilled by how eager he was to commit to the Club going forward.

“He already showed us his dedication on the field this season. Then he showed us his professionalism, with support for the team when he was ruled out of the final. This display of loyalty tells me he is exactly the kind of character that can help us grow even further.

“On the back of our captain’s new deal, this extension is another which adds to a core group of players that strengthen the foundation of our squad. 

“Having individuals like Dan, who are excited to wear the new badge with pride and honour, is what inspires others and will make us successful.”
