One of Widnes’s star players has agreed fresh terms for next season.
Owens is in his second spell with the club, having developed through the Vikings academy, and is a key player for coach Kieron Purtill
He said: “I’m buzzing to re-sign.
“I’ve been speaking to Phil Finney for a while, so to get the contract signed once we were out of Special Measures and be able to look forward now, it’s great.
“This year has been an enjoyable one for me personally. I wanted to come in, rip in during pre-season, and prove myself again to everyone here.
“This year was topped off by getting to Wembley, and then on Monday night when I won the Fans Player of the Year award.
“I didn’t want to leave this club this year, and I love playing for Widnes.
“My family and I have supported this club for their whole life, and I’m buzzing I get to carry on playing here.
“When I signed last year, I wanted to help us get back to Super League.
“It’s going to take a few more years than we probably expected it to, but we’re going to rebuild and work as hard as we can over the next few years to do that.”
