Please can anyone identify this tree?

I rescued this tree from my parents garden when they were moving house but I have no idea what it is. It was never planted (that my mum remembers) so I wondered if it might be a fruit tree of some kind?
Thanks for any help you can give. Sorry the pictures aren't great - the tree was still in the boot of the car on the rescue mission ☺

    Might be totally wrong here , but the reddish stems and white undersides look like Cotoneaster lucidus .
    Maybe someone else will be more accurate !

    It looks a bit like Salix Caprea.

    Thought I'd be 'totally wrong' ;..............a few too many vodkas (again)!!

    Haha thanks though Paul 😀
    Was at a garden centre today and saw a salix that looked the same. Great to know what it is - thanks Hostafan!
