Chamberlain discusses new deal

25th September 2017

Ed Chamberlain has extended his contract with Widnes Vikings, committing to the Club for the 2018 Super League season. The Vikings Media Team caught up with Ed to discuss his new deal and his hopes for the season ahead.

Ed, how are you feeling about committing to the Vikings for another season?

“I’m really excited for next season. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I’m hoping to not only extend my stay for next year, but to be here for a few years after that too.”

This year, you came back from loan for Magic Weekend and have had the opportunity to show what you can do in the first team. You must be pleased to have been able to make an impression this season?

“Yes, it’s been really good to have had some time in the squad. Being on loan has really helped me to develop as a player. When I came back the lads were all brilliant in helping me to get back into the processes and moves here. They’ve really made it easy for me to return to the squad.”

Do you feel like you have benefited from your loan spells in recent seasons?

“My experiences on loan have definitely helped. They've given me a greater understanding of how I should play as a centre. I’ve grown as a player and solidified that as my position. I’ve become a better player for it.”

Is the aim for the next season to claim that first team spot for next year?

“Absolutely! I want to have a good pre-season, to feature in those pre-season games, and to show Denis what I can do. I’m looking to kick on from here.”
