Kevin Brown has signed a new contract with Widnes Vikings, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2018 season.
30 year-old Brown joined the Vikings on a four-year deal in 2013 from Super League rivals Huddersfield Giants.
The England international stand-off said; “It’s an incredible feeling to have signed a new deal. I am really excited about having the chance to be part of something that’s been building ever since I joined the club in 2013.”
The Vikings’ skipper also praised head coach Denis Betts; “I’m playing with some of the best mates that I’ve ever had in rugby and I couldn’t be enjoying my rugby any more than I am at the moment. I cannot thank Denis enough for the way he has helped me. I think he has developed into one of the best British coaches in the game.”
Betts himself was delighted that his captain had signed the new deal; “Re-signing Kevin is a massive coup for the club,” he said. “It’s an amazing thing to have a player of his quality, who is spoken so highly of in the game, as the captain of this club and the main playmaker.
“He’s part of our journey and he can see what we’re trying to do and build in the future. He’s a massive part of our future recruitment policy. Good players will always want to come and play with good players so it helps the group having Kevin as a figurehead of the team.”
