“It was nice to get in front of the supporters and give them something to cheer about,” Clemence said, after his first home league game ended in a 3-1 win over Salford.
“I don’t think you have any success if you’re not connected with the supporters onto the pitch, when there is a disconnect you don’t achieve anything. We need to make sure we are all on the same page.
“We are all trying to achieve the same thing here and one thing I can tell the supporters is that this group of players will give their all for them.
