Wild Thang are incredibly proud to be the official merchandise partner as the Salford Red Devils lose out by the narrowest of margins in the Challenge Cup Final !

The Red Devils lost out on their first Wembley appearance since 1969, losing 17-16 to Leeds Rhino’s in a thrilling Challenge Cup Final. Even with this disappointing result Wild Thang are still incredibly proud of the club and honoured to be their merchandise partner, along with Kappa Team Wear supplying the highest quality kit.

To reach the Challenge Cup final for the first time in 51 years It was a heartbreaking loss for the coach, staff, players and fans on this occasion but they should take great pride in how they competed in the final at the very highest level, a final that will be talked about for many years to come as a classic.

John Howarth, Wild Thang Director commented “Even with this disappointing result this is still a huge moment for the club, getting to the final and performing so valiantly in the way they did. Wild Thang are incredibly proud to be their official merchandise and branding partner along with Kappa. It’s been a year of survival as a business for Wild Thang like many others so this is a massive moment for the company and our own team.

Our brand on BBC1, watched by 1.6 million viewers are the wow moments we work so hard for and that will help us survive and thrive in these incredibly challenging times. We have had to react quickly to create the Challenge Cup Final range straight after the Red Devils got into the final with it only being a short window of opportunity to produce and deliver the merchandise range, we have had amazing feedback from both the fans and club.”

Salford Red Devils manager Ian Watson said: “It shows the club and the team are moving in the right direction from where we have been and we’re competing in these big games now. With everything that’s happened, to come here and end up being in a 17-16 result, players and staff being absolutely devastated that we’ve not been able to win, shows a sign of how far we’ve come as a group and as a team over the last few years.”
