Jayden Hatton signs new Widnes deal

Widnes winger Jayden Hatton has signed a new one-year deal with the club ahead of the 2021 season.

The 20-year-old has scored nine tries in 15 appearances for the Vikings since making his first-team debut in 2019.

Hatton said: “It feels really good to once again commit to Widnes, I feel really comfortable here and enjoy playing here.

“The reason I committed to the Vikings was the fact that it’s my hometown club and that I want help get the club back into Super League where it belongs.

“My aim is to cement a place in the first-team for 2021. I’m confident in my own ability and know what I can do. I’ve showed what I can do in previous games and in my performances for the reserves in 2020, so I hope to transfer this to the first-team next season.

“Wherever I’m picked to play I’m confident I can do the job, even if it’s not my favourite position I’m willing to give it a crack and give my best efforts which I think will stand me in good stead for selection.

“This period has come with its problems but also its positives. I’ve been working really hard on my hamstring to make sure it’s good to go and feel I’ve increased a lot in muscle mass, feeling stronger than ever which I’m hoping to take into games.

“I’m raring to go now. The fans are so important to our club, and having experienced the passion and atmosphere many times before in previous first-team games I feel there is no better fans in the Championship than Widnes fans, which all of us in the team draw on and is vital to our success.”
