Crouthers Given Another ChanceKevin Crouthers, 26 will return to the club after being released in April due to a poor performance against Wigan Warriors (19/04/02). Kevin wants to be given the opportunity to play for the Wolves again. He is promising to give a 110% commitment and will prove himself with a stint at Chorley. Crouthers was eight months in to a two-year contract. After negotiation with the club Kevin turned down the settlement offered to terminate his contract, in favour of coming back to play for the Wolves affiliated club Chorley Lynx in the NFP. Kevin will use this time to prove himself as a player worthy of a Super League position in the Wolves first team.Crouthers came on trial to the Wolves in August 2001 and scored four tries in as many games impressing the Coaching department who offered him a two-year deal. Crouthers had previously played for Bradford Bulls (1998), London Broncos (2000), Doncaster Dragons (2000), Widnes Vikings (2001) and Dewsbury Rams (2001).Head Coach, Dave Plange commented, "Kevin has shown spirit in turning down the settlement agreement offered in pursuit of attaining a first team position again. Kevin is determined to show us that he has what it takes to be a Super League player and if that means going to Chorley for as long as it takes to be chosen for the Wolves again, he will do so."Kevin is an astute businessman and to turn down a tax free settlement in favour of starting a scratch with the club, shows a passion and commitment that Warrington Wolves requires in its players."Dale Cardoza, who was also released after the Wigan performance, he has since signed for Doncaster Dragons.
