Veivers wants no favours

New signing expecting no favours from his head coach father

Josh Veivers does not expect any favour from his new boss at Salford City Reds, who also happens to be his father.

The 22-year-old full-back has signed a 12-month contract with Salford, where Phil Veivers is head coach, but he knows he will be treated just like any other player - or possibly have it even tougher.

"It's pretty professional between us when we're at work and then away from the club it's just the normal stuff you would do with your dad," said Josh at the Reds' pre-season media day at the new Salford Community Stadium.

"There's certainly no favouritism. If anything, he's probably a bit harder on me. I suppose it's pretty tough for him but he treats me just like any other player.

"He coached me at Wigan when I was coming through the 20s. It's not a new experience but it's one that I'm looking forward to." -
