Widnes pair sign new contracts

Jay Roberts and Ben Hodkinson have committed to the Club for the 2018/19 Evo-Stik League season

Jay Roberts (pictured) and Ben Hodkinson have penned new contracts with the club, committing their futures until the summer of 2019.

Right-back Jay signed for Widnes in March 2017 from Litherland REMYCA, and has since blossomed into one of the best full-backs in the Hallmark Security League.

Roberts has made 54 Widnes appearances, scoring 4 goals. He has played a pivotal role in the two promotions Widnes have achieved since, and in last season's Macron Cup winning side.

Jay was voted as Players' Player of the Season at the end of last season by his teammates.

Striker Ben signed from Bootle in November 2017, and immediately hit the ground running with tireless performances.

Hodkinson has netted 13 times in 28 games for Widnes since, scoring important goals along the way.

The former Skelmersdale United has become a real fans' favourite in a Widnes shirt, scoring a 90th minute penalty against Runcorn Linnets and the equaliser in last month's Macron Cup final win over Burscough.
