Jay Chapelhow commits to Widnes

Widnes prop Jay Chapelhow has signed a one-year contract with the club.

The 24-year-old has made 78 appearances for the Vikings since making his first-team debut in 2015, scoring 10 tries.

Chapelhow said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to get it over the line. To finally get it sorted and to know I’m playing for the club I love and I grew up with, I couldn’t be happier.

“Widnes gave us [brothers Jay and Ted Chapelhow] an opportunity when we were young when nobody else would, so this means everything. It still feels like we’re trying to repay that debt, as they have let me be the player I am today and let me live my dream.

“I’ve supported this club since I was little, so to be able to play for my hometown is something I still want to do.

“All me and Ted have ever said is once we get a run of games, we can show people what we can do, and that’s what we’re hoping to do again next season.”
