Danny Craven has renewed his contract with Widnes for the 2018 season.
Craven is a product of the Vikings’ Academy system and has played 109 professional games in his career, making his debut for the club in 2010.
Widnes’ boss Denis Betts said: “The extension of Danny’s contract is positive news for the club. Danny has taken advantage of the opportunity available to him this year.
“He trained fantastically during the pre-season and has proved to be a real asset to the team.
“Danny is maturing into the player that we always felt he was capable of becoming, and we believe that he will contribute significantly for the remainder of this season and in 2018.”
Craven added: “I’m very happy to have signed this extension. I’ve enjoyed this season and I feel like I’ve played well.
“Unfortunately, I’ve been out for a while with injury, but I’m now fit and looking forward to kicking on for the rest of the campaign.
“I’ve benefited from my experience on loan at Featherstone Rovers last year, which gave me plenty of game time.
“I’ve been able to carry that through into this season and put together a good run of performances. I’m delighted that this has been recognised with this new contract.”
