Widnes duo join Crusaders on loan

North Wales Crusaders have signed Dec Gregory and Will Tilleke on initial two-week loan deals from Championship club Widnes Vikings.

Anthony Murray has bolstered his squad as the second half of the League 1 campaign approaches.

Crusaders supporters will be familiar with Gregory, who spent time with the club back in 2019.

The hooker impressed during that spell, scoring three times in ten appearances and securing a deal with Castleford Tigers’ reserves side the following season.

Since then, Gregory has had stints with Oldham and now the Vikings, rejoining Crusaders for this initial two-week period.

Tilleke, meanwhile, has progressed through the system at Widnes, turning out for the U19s and reserve sides.

The 22-year-old prop was a regular for the Vikings in the Championship last season, while he has made a handful of appearances so far in 2022.

Both Gregory and Tilleke will come into contention for Sunday's League 1 clash with Doncaster at Stadiwm Eirias in Colwyn Bay.
