Anthony Watts

Just a week ago, he was rewarded with a new contract – but now, for Widnes Vikings utility Anthony Watts, the club has given him a release from his contract, with Watts citing personal reasons, as the reason behind his decision.

Watts, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury earlier this season, was given a new 1-year deal by the club – but the club today announced that they would grant Watts wishes, and release him from his contract.

Watts said: “I would like to thank Widnes Vikings for the opportunity but I need to return home for personal reasons.

“As I suggested recently, I genuinely believe the club will be a huge force within the next few years and go on to achieve great things in the game.

“Unfortunately, I won’t be a part of that but I hope the fans continue to show the passion and commitment that I have witnessed in my short time there and help steer this great club back in the right direction.

“I wish all concerned at Widnes Vikings well for the future.”
