Widnes sign former centre

Widnes Vikings have completed the signing of centre Steve Tyrer from Halifax ahead of the 2021 season.

It is Tyrer’s fourth spell at the club, having previously played for the club on loan in 2008 and 2009, before signing permanently in 2011.

He left Halifax earlier this month after eight years there. Tyrer is their second ever highest points scorer.

He told the club website: “I’m delighted to have signed for the club. It is a club that has always been close to my heart really since I first played there in 2008, so to get another crack at it is something I am really looking forward to.

“I’ve got some really good friends here at the club already in Shane Grady, Matty Smith, Danny Craven and Jack Owens, so getting to play alongside some of my good mates again was a big factor.

“It was always going to take a lot for me to leave Halifax because I had been there for so long, and Widnes was probably the only club I would have left for.

“I feel like I have a bit of a point to prove at Widnes after how I left last time, so I am quite hungry for the challenge. I’m already back training now trying to get myself ready for it and I want to hit the ground running.”
