Dave Allen has scored 33 tries in 132 appearances for Widnes Vikings, over two spells with the club

Second row Dave Allen and winger Kieran Butterworth will leave Widnes Vikings at the end of the season.

Allen, 28, is in his second spell with Widnes, having returned to the club in 2010, and has scored one try in 18 appearances so far this season.

Butterworth, 20, has not made a first-team appearance for Vikings and is now too old to play in the Under-19s.

Head coach Denis Betts told the club website: "I'd like to wish Dave and Kieran all the best for the future."
