Widnes bring in Deon Cross

Widnes have signed centre Deon Cross on a one-year deal from Barrow.

The former St Helens academy player impressed for the Raiders in the Championship this season, scoring 14 tries in 30 appearances.

Cross commented: “I’m really excited to be joining such a great club like Widnes for the 2020 season, and I am grateful for the opportunity.

“Having spoken to Kieron [Purtill, coach], the direction and vision that he has for the team and the club moving forward persuaded me to join the Vikings.

“With the team that we are putting together, I’m sure we will have a top Championship side in 2020.

“Hopefully the fans will see that I’m hard working and consistent, and I will always make sure that I give 100% week in, week out for this club.”
