Joe Lyons


Place of Birthwidnes



Widnes-born Joe began playing rugby with the local Moorfield club before eventually joining the Widnes Scholarship Programme at the age of 14, and progressing through the club’s Academy structure to captain the Under 19’s in 2017, while also taking the BTEC National Diploma in Sport course. ‘Joey’ paid tribute to the support of his family and the input of all the coaches he has worked with as he named his senior debut against Leeds Rhinos in the 2018 Qualifiers as his career highlight to date. With the further experience of 16 appearances for North Wales Crusaders, including his first senior try,in 2018 he now looks forward to claiming a regular starting place in the Vikings’ first team as they seek an immediate return to Super League. Away from rugby Joe is a keen supporter of Manchester United.
