Jake Spedding signs new two-year deal at Widnes

Widnes have handed a two-year deal to centre Jake Spedding.

Spedding, 23, arrived at the Vikings from Featherstone prior to the 2020 season and played in six of their seven games in 2020, scoring four tries.

He said: “It feels really good to have signed a new deal with the club.

“I settled in really well here and enjoyed the start of the season, and hopefully we can look forward to a full fixture list over the next two seasons.

“I think me and Deon [Cross] had a good partnership going on that right edge, but there’s a long time before we start playing again and a lot of hard work to do. Competition for places will be strong and I’ll have to earn that spot all over again.

“It’s been tough throughout lockdown because there was a long period of time where we didn’t know what was going to happen, but I think now we can all set our sights on 2021 and build up for a big year.”

A former St Helens youngster, Spedding spent most of last year with Barrow, and has also featured for Sheffield.

He follows winger Deon Cross in committing his future to Widnes, who announced the signing of forward Matt Cook from Castleford on Wednesday.
