Salford add Ackers from Toronto

Salford Red Devils have confirmed the signing of hooker Andy Ackers from Toronto Wolfpack on a two-year contract.

He will link up with his new teammates immediately, and his contract is until the end of the 2022 season.

Ackers was instrumental as Toronto earned promotion to the Super League last year. This season, he made five appearances scoring one try.

He said: “I took no persuading once I knew Salford were interested.

“Now I just can’t wait for us to get playing. I’ve been keeping myself at top fitness during lockdown, for when this season gets back underway.”

Head Coach Ian Watson added: “Andy will prove to be a great signing for Salford.

“He’s a player who’s coming into his prime and will add a real attacking threat, especially around the ruck, with his speed and skills, while also stiffening us up defensively.

“I’m pleased to have the opportunity to work with Andy again, as myself and Rowls (Paul Rowley) have already had the experience of working with him.”
