Widnes have announced that youngster Joe Edge has signed a new one-year deal with the club.
Edge, 20, is a former Vikings Academy member, having initially linked up with the club in the development squad aged just 11 before going on to represent England at under 15 and 16 level.
In 2020, he was promoted to the first team squad and had made six appearances and scored two tries.
“It feels great to be staying at Widnes for at least another season,” he said.
“Playing for your hometown club is an incredible feeling, so getting the chance to continue doing that is something I’m looking forward to.
“After making my debut last year, I was determined to break into the first team squad as a regular and being given that opportunity in 2020 was great. Tim Sheens showed faith in me early on, and I hope I repaid that faith with my performances before the season was cancelled.
“Working with a coach that has the amount of experience that Tim has is something that can only help me improve as a player, and working under him so far has been brilliant.”
