Reds excited by Gower signing

Salford City Reds new signing, 20-year-old back-row forward David Gower, has met up with his new team-mates after arriving at Manchester Airport on Monday.

Reds Director of Football, Steve Simms, said: "David is a great signing for the club. He is a quality young player and we have very high hopes he will go all the way to the top."

Gower does not count on the overseas quota. He holds a British passport as his father is from Kent, although he has never been out of Australia before.

Simms continued: "There is every chance David will make his debut for us this weekend and we're sure the fans will take to him very quickly."
