With more intrigue surrounding the current state of Salford Red Devils, head coach, Ian Watson will hopefully be discussing on-field activities as he stars in an early evening event at The Old Nags Head in Irlam next Sunday, 19th November.
"This social event is about bringing fans together and having some fun in what has been an uncertain few months" says David Campbell of the Salford RLFC Supporters' Trust which is organising the night.
"The interview with Ian will cover his playing career and journey to the role of Salford Red Devils head coach, and we'll chat about the highs and lows of the 2017 season and Ian's plans for the 2018 campaign" he adds.
Hosted by former Salford and Wales international, Paul Highton, a couple of other former Salford players will be there to take questions from the audience, while, with the squad returning to pre-season training this Monday, it's hoped that a current first team player will also be able to attend.
Sponsored by The Old Nags Head, the event is free but attendees will be asked to make donations to the Rising Stars Under16s, a Red Devils Foundation programme to provide pathways for young players into the Rugby League. There will also be a raffle, and prizes include a 'paper art' portrait of Junior Sau' donated by Allegiance Ltd.
The Salford RLFC Supporters' Trust will be at the event, encouraging people to join and help to continue working with the Red Devils to put on such events. Or supporters can join online for £10 – click here
