Danny Craven signs new deal with Widnes

Danny Craven has signed a new two-year contract extension with Widnes Vikings.

The deal will see him stay at the Halton Stadium until the end of the 2020 season.

Craven came through the club’s academy and has gone on to make 88 appearances for the club, scoring 199 points.

And the 26-year-old is delighted to have extended his stay at Widnes.

He said: “I’ve been here for a long time and I believe that this is a great club to be at.

“We have a fantastic set of young players coming through, and I am excited by their potential and what we can achieve together.

“I signed here when I was 17 and I’ve not looked back since. Last year was a big season for me, because I had the opportunity to get a lot of game time and progress, playing with more freedom and confidence.

“In the coming seasons, I intend to build on this experience, by playing even more games and having an even bigger impact on the team.”

Vikings head coach, Denis Betts, added: “I am pleased that Danny has committed to Widnes Vikings for the next two years.

“Danny has been progressively getting better and better throughout his career. Through going on loan (to Halifax and Featherstone) and also earning a run of games in the team, he has matured, grown in experience and shown his abilities as a player.

“He will be competing for a place in the team every week and has a lot to offer to the squad.”
