Biography

Born in Enniskillen Liam later played his junior rugby for Halton Farnworth Hornets, and was indebted to 'Dad's Taxi' for always getting him to training sessions and matches. 'Walshy' joined the Widnes Scholarship programme at the age of 14 and it was a dream come true when he penned his first senior professional contract with his local club, which comes into effect in 2018.  A regular member of the England Youth set up Liam was one of four Widnes products to tour Australia to represent his country at Academy level in July 2016. While studying a B-Tec in Sport and the Advanced Apprenticeships in Sporting Excellence programme Liam's career highlight came in April 2017 when he achieved his ambition of representing Widnes in Super League. Away from the game he is a keen cinema-goer and fisherman.
