Widnes sign former St Helens centre

Widnes have signed centre Jake Spedding on a one-year deal from Featherstone.

The 22-year-old came through the ranks at St Helens before enjoying spells with Barrow and Featherstone, scoring five tries in 20 Championship appearances.

Spedding said: “Kieron [Purtill, coach] spoke to me a couple of times and was keen for me to come and join this club, which speaks volumes to me.

“I’ve been at a few clubs now in the Championship, and I’m starting to get a feel of what is needed to be successful in this division. Hopefully I can bring some of that to the squad for next season.

“This club is massive and speaks for itself, and I’d love nothing more than to help get it back up to where it belongs.

“I want to let the fans know that I’ll give 100% every time I wear the shirt, and hopefully I can reward them with plenty of tries and some fast, attacking rugby.”
