Ex-St Helens forward retires

Ex-St Helens forward Paul Clough has announced his retirement after one season at Widnes.

The prop forward spent a brief loan spell with the Vikings back in 2014, and has made 17 appearances so far this season in the Championship on his return.

Back in April he celebrated a huge milestone with a victory at Odsal, as Widnes defeated Bradford 25-12 on his 350thcareer appearance.

Clough’s career began at hometown club St Helens where he made his debut in 2005 and went on to lift the Challenge Cup in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008, featuring in four Super League Grand Finals too.

The England Knights international spent two seasons with Bradford Bulls before moving to Huddersfield Giants and eventually returning to Widnes in 2021, where he would play out his final season.
