DANNY Craven’s testimonial match takes place this Sunday, 16 January (3pm kick-off) when Widnes Vikings take on Batley Bulldogs.

The match is Vikings’ sole pre-season friendly before the season begins at the end of the month.

Supporters are advised to purchase their tickets in advance to avoid queues on the day, but tickets will be available from the ticket window from 10am until kick-off at 3pm.

Supporters can still buy tickets online or from the Club Shop at Widnes Market this week.

The Club Shop will be open as usual on Thursday and Friday between 10am and 4pm, and on Saturday between 10am and 3pm.

Craven has racked up 157 appearances for the club, scoring 55 tries, kicking 43 goals and notching up seven drop-goals to amass 313 points so far.

He has earned his testimonial following 12 years of service and counting to the club, after signing a new two-year deal this year.

Tickets are available in both the North and South Stands and are on an unreserved seating basis, apart from Gold and Silver seating which are reserved for 2022 Season Ticket holders in those seats. (Season tickets cannot be used)

Ticket prices: Adult/Concession – £15, Junior (under 16) £5.
