Brad Holroyd signs for Widnes

Widnes Vikings have announced the signing of promising young winger Brad Holroyd on a one-year contract for the 2022 season.

The 21-year-old arrives following his try-scoring performance in victory with Workington Town in the Betfred League 1 Promotion Final

He scored 18 tries for the Cumbrian side last year and was nominated for the league’s Young Player of the Year award for 2021.

The winger played at Crosfields and the St Helens academy as a teenager, and represented England at under-19 level.

The versatile back also spent time with Leigh Centurions and Rochdale Hornets before moving to Workington last year.

He scored a notable hat-trick against London Skolars last season and finished the season as the third-highest try scorer in League 1.

On signing for 2022, he said: "I'm made up to have signed for such a big club, I can’t wait to meet up with the lads and get started."
