Josh Ganson joins Widnes Vikings

Widnes Vikings have signed for England Academy and Wigan Warriors player Josh Ganson following a successful trial period.

Josh Ganson said: “I’m made up to have signed the deal. I was really grateful to Widnes for giving me a four-week trial and the opportunity to get back playing rugby. For me to now be able to stay at the club for the rest of the year, it’s great. 

“The lads have been great with me. I knew a lot of the boys from England Academy and playing against them when I was at Wigan. Since I’ve come in, they’ve been really welcoming, and I’ve loved every minute of it. 

“Kieron has been straight up with me from the moment I walked through the door, explaining what he wants from me and how hard he wanted me to work.  

“He said if I did that then I’d get the rewards and the chance to play. Luckily, I’ve played almost every game since I came in, so I’m delighted to have got this deal on the back of it. 

“My aim for me is to kick on now. I want to keep doing what I’m doing, improving every week, and play as many games as I can and give my all for the club.”

Widnes are set to travel to Featherstone Rovers this weekend in the Betfred Championship in search of a fourth consecutive victory.
