Salford Red Devils tackle sustainability head-on with special hand-delivered donation to local charity shop
Two local Super League stars made a surprise appearance at one of MediaCity's most popular new attractions.
The Charity Super.Mkt pop-up in Quayside Media City has received a massive collection of exclusive sports gear and merchandise from rugby league club Salford Red Devils.
Australian second-row duo and Salford stars Sam Stone and Shane Wright took a trip over to the Quays to deliver the goods in person.
The Super League club has been collecting training wear and playing shirts from players throughout the off-season, which have been donated to the second-hand fashion store, along with a range of other branded Red Devils merchandise.
So, this is your chance to grab some exclusive kits and gear, all in great condition and at great prices.
Paul King, Managing Director of Salford Red Devils, said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Charity Super.Mkt and donate some special items and player-worn gear to aid their efforts.
“As a club, we believe in making a positive impact beyond the field, and by supporting Super.Mkt we’re able to ensure a sustainable route for these pieces, offer an affordable option for our community, and support some fantastic charities.”
Dotted in amongst the donated items are also some very special pieces that Devils fans would definitely want to get their hands on. But you’ll have to be quick…
With prices starting at just £5, lucky shoppers could stumble across signed match-worn shirts of former Red, Danny Addy, as well as England Knights International, Deon Cross; there were also two shirts signed by the whole squad — including the first squad-signed 2024 shirt!
Five lucky shoppers will also have the chance to win two tickets to the first home game of the season against Castleford Tigers on 25th February 2024. To grab a seat at The AJ Bell Salford Community Stadium, selected items will be labelled with a rare golden ticket, so you might be going home with more than just a new shirt if you’re lucky!

“People, including sports fans, are becoming more conscious of their choices and the effect they have on the world. We’re happy to help give them new sports gear without hurting the planet or breaking the bank.”
Proceeds will go towards participating charities including Age UK, All Aboard, Emmaus, Havens Hospices, Together Trust and St Vincent de Paul.
