Former Polish champion Adam Skornicki is to make an emotional return to British side Wolverhampton next season.

Skornicki, who first appeared for the Monmore Green side in 2000, has made 221 appearances in the famous gold and black and carded 1,593 points in three different spells.

He rejoins his parent club with an average of 6.57 and will provide valuable support to SGP duo Freddie Lindgren and Tai Woffinden if the latter finalises a new deal with the club.

Wolves owner Chris Van Straaten said: “This may be a surprise move in many people’s eyes, but Adam was desperate to come back.

“We also had messages from some supporters suggesting we consider him. He has a first class record with the club, two league titles and a fantastic attitude.

“He’s such a popular character in the pits, he will help with team spirit and he can provide us with some very important points.

“When I called him he was thrilled. He even said it was 12 years to the day since I first made contact with him – it must have been a major moment in his life!

“He’s the type of rider we want here at Wolverhampton, he will always give us everything and I’m certain the fans will make him welcome.”
