Salford sign Atkin for 2020
Salford Red Devils have completed the signing of halfback Chris Atkin from Hull KR on a one year contract.
Atkin, who has struggled for game time so far this year, was announced as one of three players to be leaving Rovers at the end of the season.
He joins Dan Sarginson in signing for the Salford club next year. He will also be reunited with former coach Ian Watson after the pair worked together at Swinton Lions.
tkin said: “I’m really excited. The boys have done really well this season and are pushing towards the play-offs at the end of the season now, so I’m really excited to come on board.
“Watto (Ian Watson) was the one who brought me in at Swinton and gave me my professional debut.
“Since then, I’ve always wanted to work with him again and this opportunity has come up and I’m really looking forward to it and feeling determined to get back to it.
“He’s a really great coach and he’s proved that again this year.
“KR was a big step up from the Championship and I get to take it on again now and hopefully push Salford up the Super League.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the boys as well and just getting stuck into pre-season.”
