Lloyd Roby pens new Widnes deal

Widnes have announced the re-signing of Lloyd Roby on a one-year deal.

Lloyd, 21, progressed through the Widnes youth pathway all the way to the first team, making his debut in a Challenge Cup tie away to Warrington Wolves back in 2017.

In 2019, he made 23 appearances for the Vikings and scored 14 tries, making him the third highest try scorer for the club that season

He said: “I’m made up to have signed a new deal at the club, it obviously means a lot to me having progressed through the academy.

“In 2019 I enjoyed a good season with plenty of games under my belt, and that experience of playing in the Championship week-in, week-out has really helped my development.Breaking into club 20 last season was also a great moment for me, and it is disappointing I didn’t have the opportunity to build on that in 2020.

“Obviously the safety of players, staff and fans had to come first, so now we have to make sure we’re ready and in the best possible shape for when we’re back in training.

“Working with Tim Sheens was something I was really looking forward to when I signed my contract last season, and I’m excited to continue learning from one of the best coaches in the sport.

“Now that everything is signed and confirmed, I can’t wait to get back out there and pull on the Widnes colours in front of our supporters. They have been with us through thick and thin so I can’t wait for that first game when we’re finally back with the fans packing out the stands, it will be a special moment.”
