WOLVERHAMPTON have dipped into the signing market by snapping up two new riders.

They've reached agreement with the vastly experienced former Coventry title winner Rory Schlein as a replacement for Polish racer Adam Skornicki.

And in more of a surprise move, the Monmore Green side have signed talented German Mark Riss after releasing struggling youngster Max Clegg.

The changes have been made in time for Monday's home meeting with Rye House.

And in another ironic twist, Wolves club asset Ricky Wells has been given permission to join the Rockets ahead of the meeting.

Parrys International Wolves promoter Chris Van Straaten said: "It's been a hectic 48-hours but we've managed to conclude our business.

"We wish Max well, it's been very tough for him but I also see a long term future here for him.

"He's made the jump into the senior reserve role for us and into the main body of Edinburgh's team at one time and looking back that was too much to expect from the lad.

"He's very philosophical and understands the situation and this won't be the last we see of him.

"He's also lost the confidence boost of winning races for Cradley in the National League which hasn't helped.

"In Rory Schlein we have a rider who has the experience and ability to score points in the main body of our team. We were close to signing him in the winter but we are pleased to have him on board now.

"Mark Riss has a lot of potential and we felt we had to make this move to strengthen us at reserve.

"His Dad, Gerd, rode for us in the 80s so we are keeping it in the family in many ways.

"And with Ricky joining Rye House in time for Monday at Monmore we really are facing a team of Wolverhampton specialists with him, Scott Nicholls and Chris Harris. What a night that promises to be!"
