Widnes Vikings are delighted to announce the re-signing of a number of Academy stars on new contracts. All of these players have signed deals to stay with the Vikings U19s side for the 2018 season. The Vikings media team caught up with all of these players to get their thoughts on it. First up, is half back Chris Wilson. 

Age: 18
Position: Half Back
School: St Peters Orrell
Community Club: Orrell St James

Grant Gore, Head Coach of the Vikings’ U19s says, “Chris is a player whose ability and understanding of the game has really developed over the past two years." 

“He has really accurate distribution of the ball and great footwork to compliment his running game. He plays well above his weight and is aggressive in defence.

“Chris is always looking to learn and ask questions and I’m really looking forward to seeing him develop further as a half back over the next 12 months and become a real leader of the Under 19s.”


Take a look at a highlights package of Chris below.
