Widnes centre Stefan Marsh has signed a new two-year deal with the club.
Marsh, 23, joined the Vikings initially on loan in 2010, and returned to the club on a similar basis in 2012, before joining on a permanent deal at the end of that season.
He has now played 40 games for Denis Betts’ side, scoring 23 tries.
Betts said: “This new deal is a reward for all the hard work Stef has put in since he’s been here. He’s a great person to have in the group, works hard, has loads of ability and we think he’s got it in him to get better and better for this Club.
“He’s a real strike player for us and he has that X-Factor about him that makes Stef pretty dangerous to play against. We’re really pleased to have tied him up for another two years.”
The deal commits Marsh to the club until the end of the 2016 season.
He said: “I’m really enjoying my time here at Widnes and when the offer came in to put pen to paper for another two years, I jumped at it. It’s a really exciting time to be involved at the Vikings as the Club is really moving forward.
“Widnes Vikings is a Club that has a rich history and I’m looking forward to playing my part in shaping the future. We are building something special here.”
