Kevin Penny

He has been around a bit over the last few years but for Kevin Penny, he will make a return to his home town of Warrington, after signing a 12-month contract with the Wolves.

It was back in 2007 when Penny made his debut for the club but after a loss of form, he went on to enjoy stints at the Widnes Vikings, Harlequins, the Wakefield Wildcats and the Swinton Lions, before re-settling back in Warrington.

With a further two-year option available, Penny is eager to make the most of his chance and stay a home town player for some time.

“It’s not fully sunk in yet,” he said.

“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.

“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.”

Tony Smith, the Wolves head coach, says the club is pleased to see Penny back for a second chance with the club and are pleased with the progress he has made since his first stint.

“We are delighted to give Kevin another opportunity,” said Smith.

“He’s gone away, had to go back a level or two to learn some more about rugby league and we think it’s terrific that he’s got another chance to come back here and show what he’s learnt.

“We’ve been monitoring him for the last couple of years and watched his progress at Swinton. He’s turned into a terrific player.”
