Featherstone Rovers have annnounced the signing of centre Kris Welham from Super League side Salford Red Devils for the 2021 season.
The 33-year-old became a key figure of Ian Watson’s Salford side since joining in 2017 and was part of the famous Red Devils side that exceeded all expectations by reaching the 2019 Betfred Super League Grand Final.
The centre has over 300 appearances and over 160 tries to his name and will be a welcomed addition to the James Webster’s squad, who are looking forward to getting the 2021 season underway after an unbeaten start to the 2020 season was halted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Rovers Head Coach James Webster said: “I have been lucky enough to have known Kris since we played together at Hull KR. His try scoring record over a career that has spanned close to 15 years shows the quality he possesses.
“Even when highlighting his fantastic try scoring record, it is his attitude and effort within the clubs that he has represented that will always be his biggest asset. He is a fantastic club man that will always play his heart out for the shirt and those that come and spend their hard-earned cash every week to watch the sport.”
