Widnes Vikings are delighted to announce the signing of nine young players into the Club’s Academy.

All nine players making the step up are graduates of the Vikings’ Scholarship Programme. Over the coming days, we will be taking a closer look at each player in finer detail…

Next up, we are taking a look at Connor Burgess.

Age: 16 
Position: Second Row
Community Club(s): Halton Farnowrth Hornets, West Bank Bears
School: Sts Peter & Paul Catholic College

Ryan O'Brien, Youth Performance Manager at Widnes Vikings, says: "Connor was a member of the Widnes Vikings Development Squad and joined our Scholarship at the age of 14.

"He is a very dominant defender and has developed other aspects of his game to become a more well rounded back rower.

"Connor still has a lot to work on, but we’re confident that he’ll fulfill his potential if he fully applies himself in our Academy over the coming years."

Take a look at Connor's highlights above.
