On December 13th at the DCBL Stadium, we bring you ‘AN EVENING WITH JOHN DEVEREUX’ as the Welsh Sports Hall of Famer returns for his exclusive book launch event.

The price is £25 per ticket which includes the first opportunity to purchase his new biography called “Double Dragon, Double Lion” the story of John’s career which of course included his time at Widnes in which he played 185 matches, scoring 120 tries!

Fans wishing to secure a place at the exclusive event must do so by 6pm on Tuesday 12 December.

Also included is a signed copy of the book (price £13.99), a pie and peas supper, and a question and answer session with John, Big Jim Mills, and some of his teammates from his successful period with the Vikings. Confirmed so far are Andy Currier, Darren Wright, Mike O’Neill, Paul Hulme, David Hulme, and Steve McCurrie.

During his time at Naughton Park, Devereux helped the club win the Lancashire Cup in 1990 and the Regal Trophy two years later.

The winger was selected in the Great Britain Rugby League squad that toured the Southern Hemisphere in 1992, as well as making 12 appearances for Wales from 1991-2000.

John Devereux reflected on his time playing for the Vikings, saying, “Widnes holds a special place in my heart and always will.

“I played eight seasons at Widnes, through good and bad times and the fans were always supportive.

“They are just like like the rugby fans from Wales, they love their rugby, and appreciate players that gave their all for the club.”

Devereux explained how much he is looking forward to reuniting with fans and some of his former teammates, saying: “I still keep in contact with some of the players but it will be great to see them face to face after such a long time, as well as all the Widnes fans.”

Doors will open at 7 pm, with the evening set to start at 7:30 pm. Corporate tables of 10 can be booked for a price of £250.
