Ah Van leaves Widnes
Widnes Vikings winger Patrick Ah Van has left the club with immediate effect.
He leaves to take up an opportunity playing rugby union.
Ah Van initially joined Widnes after they were promoted to the Super League in 2012, having previously been with Bradford Bulls.
He initially left the club after their relegation to play in France with Villegailhenc-Aragon, before returning and playing for free to help the club during their financial difficulties.
Phil Finney, Chief Executive of Widnes Vikings, said: “First and foremost, we would like to thank Patrick for his loyal service to Widnes Vikings both in 2019, and across the whole of his time at the club.
“Patrick is someone that carries huge experience and ability, and put his hand up to help the club during the season. There’s no doubt that he has been a massive help to Kieron and the first team squad throughout his return.
“Pat has been associated with Widnes Vikings for a number of years, and is a highly popular figure around the club, and that is testament to the man and the player that he is.
“On behalf of everyone at the club, we’d like to wish Patrick, and his family, all the best in their future endeavours.”
