Widnes Vikings can confirm a dual-registration partnership with Warrington Wolves for the 2020 season.

This partnership will enable the Vikings to work with the Wolves throughout the year, including liaising and working with the Super League club’s performance team.

The partnership will also allow the movement of players to Widnes during the season on dual-registration, offering the opportunity of players receiving more game time at the Vikings under Tim Sheens.

Phil Finney, Chief Executive of Widnes Vikings says: “We are delighted to be partnering up with Warrington for this season.

“Whilst we have always carried a rivalry with them on the field, we are enhancing a strong relationship with them off it, emphasised by this partnership moving forward.

“This partnership also offers opportunities for us to take on players through dual-registration during the season that can add to the competitive squad we’ve built during the off-season.

“We see this as a hugely positive step forward for us on the eve of the new season, and is a partnership we can benefit from.

“We look forward to working with Warrington Wolves and seeing how this relationship develops throughout 2020.”
