Widnes Vikings halfback Danny Craven has committed his future to the club by signing a contract until the end of 2021.
He has spent his whole career at the Vikings, and scored their first try back in the Super League against Wakefield Trinity in 2012.
“I’m glad to get this deal over the line,” Craven told the Vikings’ website. “I’ve been here a long time, and it was never really in my plans to leave this club.
I’m really happy here, and adding that to what we’ve been through this year as well, with the fans commitment to this place, that topped it off and made me want to stay.
“With myself, Jack (Owens) and Kieron (Purtill) committing for next year, it’s a good starting point now for us to build on.
“We know it’s going to be tough, but we’ve all got to come together as a club and as a town, and go through it as one.
“I’ve had two children since I’ve been at the club, and my lad is a mad Widnes fan, so if I did leave he’d have something to say about it!
“There’s no other club I’d rather play for than Widnes, so next year is exciting. We can start building for the future, getting plans and structures in place and hopefully get back to Super League one day.”
