Former Castleford Tigers assistant coaches Andy Hay and Stuart Donlan have landed new roles with Super League club Salford City Reds.

Salford head coach Brian Noble has confirmed the appointment of former Leigh, Castleford and Halifax full-back Stuart Donlan as his assistant.

Donlan, 34, was assistant to Ian Millward at Castleford until both were sacked just over a month ago.

Former Castleford and Hull assistant coach and ex-Cas and Leeds player Andy Hay has also been recruited and they take the place of Sean Long, who resigned last month and subsequently joined Wigan.

Noble said: “Both come to us with an excellent pedigree. We are virtually up to where we should be now with the strength of our backroom team.

“Both are straight into it now and it will allow us to spend more time working with individuals.”
