Widnes Vikings winger Ryan Ince has become the latest first team star to commit his immediate future to the club ahead of the 2019 campaign. 

The talented 22-year old possesses incredible speed and a natural ability to cross the whitewash. Ryan can boast an impressive 1-in-2 try scoring record for the Vikings at first team level since making his debut against Hull FC in 2016. 

Ryan is a graduate of the club’s Academy, progressing through every stage of its pathway since joining at 14, and has represented England at youth levels. He has made 48 senior competitive appearances, including short loan spells at Hunslet Hawks and Whitehaven RLFC, scoring 18 tries.

Ryan Ince, says: “I’m really excited for next year to come around. There’s been a few changes at the club, but I’m confident with those changes in place, we can bounce back into Super League next year. 

“I got injured in pre-season last year, and that meant that I didn’t really get going in 2018 and made this year a frustrating one. So, if I stay injury-free next season, I know that I can have a good year.

“As a Widnes lad, it’ll be massive for me to be part of the squad that gets us back into Super League, and I’ll be doing all I can to help make that happen.”

Phil Finney, Head of Youth at Widnes Vikings: “Ryan is another player that has progressed from our Academy and has only ever represented Widnes. As a Widnes lad, Ryan knows what it means to represent the club and the town, and has remained loyal to the club on a number of occasions.  

“Ryan is an exceptional athlete who has demonstrated his qualities a number of times at first team level already. Ryan is at a stage in his career now where he needs to cement a regular place in the first team.  I’m sure that with a good pre-season, Ryan will do everything he can to achieve this.”

James Rule, CEO of Widnes Vikings, says: “Ryan is one of the cohort of players under the age of 22 that the club approached prior to the end of last season offering to honour their Super League contracts irrespective of whether we were playing in the Super League or the Championship.

“I’m delighted that our show of faith in Ryan has been reciprocated by him agreeing to stay with us for our 2019 campaign.”
