Kris Welham has extended his stay with Salford until the end of next season, the Super League club have confirmed. The 32-year-old has made over 75 appearances for the Red Devils since arriving at the club in 2017 and is looking forward to continuing his career with Ian Watson’s men.
“I’m really happy to be staying,” Welham said. “I love the club. The boys here are great and the fans get behind us every week. “When I knew they wanted me to stay and there was a deal on the table, it was a no brainer. I’m playing well at the minute and I think the most consistent time in my career has been the three years I’ve spent here.
“That’s credit to Watto, with the way he coaches and has me playing, and I’m pleased to be continuing that next season. This year, we’re focusing on making that top five and next year we want to improve on that.” Salford Director of Rugby and Operations Ian Blease added: “Kris is a model professional, who’s been a tremendous acquisition for us and continues to be an important part of the squad and club as a whole.”
