Cup Winner's Obituary Posted

Des Horne's passing at the age of 75 had us speaking to his daughter in Wolverhampton and also his son in South Africa. We have now written a long tribute to the 1960 FA Cup winner and hope we have done some justice to a man who also has another very special place in the club's history.

Fond Memories Of 'Uncle Tommy'

Nothing pleases us more than to be approached by long-lost relatives or friends of Wolves favourites, especially those who are seeking our help in re-connecting them. We will be writing soon about just such an email that we have received out of the blue regarding a 1960s coach and we are happy in the meantime to share some memories of a football fan who got in touch with us to offer and seek information of a 1950s Molineux reserve from north of the border.

Pedal Power Journey To Charity Goal

We at Wolves Heroes wish to add our own 'good luck' message to Robbie Dennison as he continues his gallant push for charity on the other side of the Irish Sea. But it's not in his native country that he is going through the pain barrier but across the border in the Republic, where Wolves have been found in pre-season build-ups on several occasions over the last decade and a half.

Death Of Des Horne

Sad News From South Africa

We at Wolves Heroes wish to our own condolences to those already made following the passing away of Des Horne. The 1960 FA Cup finalist, with whom we felt privileged to be granted an exclusive double audience when he visited these shores in 2009, passed away in his native South Africa at the age of 75.

An Impressive Roll Call

Welcome to one of the newer areas of the Wolves Heroes website.
Here, we not only list every player who has appeared in a League match for the club but also the order in which they did so.
For example, this is the place to learn that a few well-known and not-so-well-known men, such as Gerry O'Hara and Robert Kelly, have special niches in Wolves history that they presumably knew nothing about.
In 1976, O'Hara became the 600th man to be given a League debut by the club while Kelly clocked in as the 700th more than a decade later.
Please take a slow trawl through to see the entire order but bear in mind that, if you are revisiting this area, we may have made alterations since you last looked owing to a recount and the eagle eye of our checker, Donald Noble in Coventry!
We stress that the list refers to League games only, not any of the cups, and stretches back 125 years to when Wolves were one of 12 proud founder members of the competition.

Texaco Cup Heroics: Part Two

In what was described as a 'wistful' glance back at the Texaco Cup, Wolves fanatic Jim Heath referred to the competition in a When Saturday Comes article a decade ago as 'a kind of British Isles Cup for also-rans.' He also said it heralded the game’s modernisation, with corporate sponsorship being cautiously welcomed in the form of the £100,000 the oil giant sunk into the venture.

‘Home’ Win That Was Perfect Preparation

Texaco Cup Heroics: Part One

It didn't have the glamour of the following season's campaign - and certainly not the same reach - but Wolves' winning crusade in one of football's long-neglected competitions might just have been a leg-up to UEFA Cup success. By popping up to Scotland and over to Northern Ireland, their players became more familiar not only with travelling and living together, but also with the two-leg combat that was largely alien to them.

FA Youth Cup Winner Who Piled Up The Runs

Phil Parkes bowled mean and quick and Ron Flowers brought as much Yorkshire grit to the cricket pitch as he did to the old gold, approached as he was to play at county level. But, whereas Lofty and Flowers became Wolves legends, Ian Hall achieved far more in white flannels than ever he did at Molineux. And yet, as a youngster, he seemed destined to reach the very top in the winter game.

Mel On His Many Molineux Memories

No former Wolves player remains more active and visible around Molineux than Mel Eves. If it's not playing for and running the club's All Stars side, it is watching first-team matches and supporting charity events. Not surprisingly, he was more than happy to step up as John Richards' latest interviewee in this series, the more senior man having very much been a guiding light and inspiration to him in his playing career.

A Prize Catch - And No Passport Required

Not once but twice in the Graham Turner years, Wolves travelled to the holiday island off the north-west coast of Wales to prepare for Second Division campaigns - their first two back up, in fact, following their 1980s slide to the Football League basement. Because of a combination of their own impoverished state and the fact they were hardly seen as a big draw, overseas trips were off the agenda for much of that decade, so much so that even a few days around the British coastline when they came along.

A Unique Place In Molineux History

It's at times like this when you are thankful for the opportunities; thankful, in our case, that we were able to meet Des Horne at some length during what proved to be his final visit to England.

Sir Jack Hayward: 1923 – 2015

Witty, Worldly And Wonderful - A Life Of Giving

Where do you start to pay due deference to a life like Sir Jack Hayward’s? The adjectives come gushing to mind.....colourful, patriotic, magnetic, eccentric, generous beyond comprehension and, happily, Wolves-daft. From the moment he entered the lives of the Molineux family in the spring of 1990, we realised we had been blessed with the presence of a very special man.
