Widnes sign Barrow winger Cross

Posted by

Widnes Vikings have confirmed the signing of winger Deon Cross from Barrow Raiders for the 2020 season.

Cross comes having been top try scorer for the Raiders in 2019 with 14 tries.

Having come through the academy ranks at St Helens, he has since made a decent career for himself in the Championship with the Raiders and Rochdale Hornets.

“I’m really excited to be joining such a great club like Widnes for the 2020 season, and I am grateful for the opportunity,” he said. “Having spoken to Kieron, the direction and vision that he has for the team and the club moving forward persuaded me to join the Vikings.

“I’m looking forward to getting out there for my first game playing in front of the supporters. Widnes have a great fan base that take a big number of travelling supporters to away games too, and that was also one of the reasons which persuaded me to join this club.

“With the team that we are putting together, I’m sure we will have a top Championship side in 2020.

“Hopefully the fans will see that I’m hard working and consistent, and I will always make sure that I give 100% week in week out for this club.”
