Academy Awards at Salford Red Devils
Posted on 13th June 2018 at 11:35
Summer is approaching for our partner Education and Sport Academies, therefore to round off the year and acknowledge the hard work and achievements of the learners at each of our academies we have been handing out prizes to a handful to celebrate their academic achievements this past year. We also created certificates of programme completion for all of our 2nd Year Learners to mark their time at the academy coming to an end as they go on to promising futures in either; University, Apprenticeships or Employment.
First up is Salford Red Devil's Academy. Read on to find out who the award winners were...

THE AWARDS WENT TO...
1st year Student of the Year- Dan Goddard 2nd year Student of the Year- Sam Bardsley Outstanding efforts of the Year (1st year)- Bradley Smith and Matthew Jones Outstanding efforts of the Year (2nd year)- Jack Ratcliffe
We spoke to Sam Bardsley to gather his reaction on receiving Student of the Year for the 2nd Year...
“Obviously I was not expecting the award as all the lads have worked really hard and it must of been a tough decision for the teachers. I’ve really enjoyed my time at Salford and wish I could stay for longer as it’s a really good place for development of rugby and learning at the same time, I don’t know what the future holds at the moment but hopefully it’s positive.”

Sam was selected by his Onside tutors for his continued hard work throughout the year, Sam has had a successful two years on programme at Salford- including stints as Man of the Match, training with Salford Red Devils professional Rugby League 1st team and winning Players’ Player of the Year at Salford Red Devils Foundation's player awards evening in April this year. Sam has been a popular member of the academy both on and off the pitch and we wish him all the best for his future!
