Widnes Vikings are delighted to announce the signing of eleven young players into the Club’s Academy. With ten of these talented young players graduating from the Vikings’ Scholarship programme, this is the latest success for the Club’s youth system, which is rated as Outstanding by the RFL. 

The Vikings Media Team are taking a closer look at each player, and today it is the turn of Jarrod O'Connor.  

Age: 16
Position: Loose Forward
Community Club(s): Halton Farnworth Hornets
School: Wade Deacon

Ryan O’Brien, Youth Performance Manager at Widnes Vikings, said: “Jarrod is another lad from Widnes who progressed into our Scholarship programme from the Development Squad.

"He is an extremely tough, driven and committed player with an unrivalled work ethic. Throughout the past two years, in an attempt to stretch his capabilities, we exposed Jarrod to a number of positions for our U16s and he has consistently risen to the challenge.

"I’ve no doubt that, with his attitude, he’ll excel in the Academy over the next few years."

Take a look at Jarrod’s highlights from 2017 above.
