A FORMER RGC youth star has made history by becoming one of the youngest players to ever sign a professional contract with Warrington Wolves.

Josh Lynch has been making significant strides in rugby league in recent months, which culminated with the aspiring playing penning a pro deal with the Wolves aged just 16.

This represents a significant achievement from Lynch, who skippered RGC West during his time at Rydal Penrhos School in Colwyn Bay.

He has since moved on to Kirkham Grammar School in the North West of England, where Lynch has been making his presence felt in both league and union disciplines.

The powerful back was also a member of the Sale Sharks Rugby Academy during the early stages of his development and will now get the chance to make a name for himself at one of the country’s most established rugby league sides.

Lynch has also achieved notoriety in weightlifting circles, with the teenager representing Wales at high-profile competitions across the continent, breaking several national records in the process.

The Colwyn Bay native will be looking to add his name to the wealth of former Gogs’ youngsters who made it to the professional ranks.

Sean Lonsdale is currently plying his trade with English Premiership side Exeter Chiefs, with Tom Williams also regarded as one of the brightest young prospects in the country.
