Widnes Vikings are delighted to announce the signing of nine young players into the Club’s Academy.

All nine players making the step up are graduates of the Vikings’ Scholarship Programme. Over the coming days, we will be taking a closer look at each player in finer detail…

Next up, we are taking a look at Niall Smith.

Age: 16 
Position: Centre/Winger
Community Club(s): Shevington Sharks
School: St Peters Catholic High School

Ryan O'Brien, Youth Performance Manager at Widnes Vikings, says: "Niall is a versatile player who has grown in confidence since joining us as a 14-year-old.

"He is equally at home in the centres or on the wing, and even had a stint in the back row for our U16s this year.

"With his aggression, evasion and athleticism, I’ve no doubt that Niall will excel in our Academy."

Take a look at Niall's highlights above.
