Former Warrington winger Kevin Penny has returned to the pitch with National Conference League side Leigh East.

Penny, 34, has been pictured by Leigh East at the club’s recent training session.

The winger joined Warrington’s academy in 2005, and made his senior debut against Leeds in 2007. He went on to appear for Widnes and Harlequins on loan, before joining Wakefield in 2011.

He was later loaned to Widnes, and made the switch to Swinton Lions with then-head coach Steve McCormack in 2012.

Penny returned to Warrington in 2014 and made his second debut for the club against Castleford. He would go on to appear for North Wales Crusaders and Rochdale on loan.

His last professional appearance came in 2017 for Hornets.

Now, the Warrington-born player has linked up with Leigh East.

Leigh East made a winning start to their National Conference League campaign after hitting back from 6-16 down to claim a 24-22 victory over Shaw Cross Sharks.
