Widnes have announced that Joe Lyons has signed a new one-year deal with the club.
Lyons, 22, is a product of the club’s academy system, having worked through every stage of the pathway to make his first team debut in 2018.
In 2020, he scored three tries in all seven fixtures for the Vikings featuring at both half-back and full-back before the season ended.
“My focus now is on getting myself ready for whenever we’re given the green light to return to training, and be best prepared to hit the ground running in 2021,” he said.
“Tim has used me in a couple of positions already since he arrived at the club, and my aim is to help out the team in the best way I can. I’ll be looking to keep a regular spot in the team and build on my performances from this season, and hopefully we can enjoy a successful year.
“Some of the signings that have already been made are exciting, so if you combine those with the lads we have kept I think we have a really good squad coming together.
“We’re all looking forward to getting back into training and eventually back playing now, because it has been a long-time since we were together as a group. It will be a great occasion once we’re able to run out in front of our fans again, and I can’t wait to hear them loud and proud in 2021.”
