Warrington Wolves announce the return of former winger Kevin Penny
6:07pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in Wolves
WARRINGTON Wolves have announced the return of former winger Kevin Penny on a one-year deal with an option for two additional years.
The 2007 Dream Team winger left the club in 2010 after failing to break into the first team under Tony Smith, but has been impressing for Wolves' partner club Swinton Lions this year and will return to wearing primrose and blue for the 2014 season.
Penny, aged 26, will return to his hometown club having made his first debut in 2007, going on to play for Widnes, Harlequins and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats before being signed by Swinton at the end of last season.
He said: "It's not fully sunk in yet.
"I am made up to be coming back into the full-time environment after a couple of years working in a normal job as well.
"It won't be like going to a new club where you need to settle into the surroundings and facilities as I know a lot already so it will be easier for me and I'm looking forward to it.
"I've always said that Tony's been the best coach I've ever had and we have remained friends.
"It means a lot to me and gives me a lot of confidence knowing that he wants me to come back to the club.
"Since I last played at Warrington I've learnt a lot about rugby and life itself which will benefit me a lot more this time around.
"Gary Chambers was unbelievable for me through the academy at Warrington and he's done an incredible job at Swinton too; I was made up when he came over and he's been important for me over the last year."
