Widnes youngster agrees contract extension

Young Widnes outside back Joe Edge has signed a new one-year deal with the club for next season.

The 20-year-old made his debut last season, making three appearances in total, before featuring prominently in 2020, playing six games and scoring two tries.

Edge is the ninth Vikings player to commit to the club of late, joining the likes of Matty Smith, Jack Owens and  Logan Tomkins in penning new contracts.

“It feels great to be staying at Widnes for at least another season,” he said. “Playing for your hometown club is an incredible feeling, so getting the chance to continue doing that is something I’m looking forward to.

“After making my debut last year, I was determined to break into the first team squad as a regular and being given that opportunity in 2020 was great. Tim Sheens showed faith in me early on, and I hope I repaid that faith with my performances before the season was cancelled.”
