Another Prize Catch For Wolves Heroes

Charles Bamforth, for so long a fervent supporter of this website, has continued to deliver to our in-box in spades - by finding a man who has been off the Molineux radar for the best part of 40 years. The lifelong Wolves fan may live in California but has managed to track down Maurice Daly, the Irish left-sided hopeful who played 36 first-team games for the club in the second half of the 1970s.

Dear Diary Entry 48

A Month With A Sad Start And Finish

Tuesday, September 1: Was interviewed on BBC WM after the death was announced of Billy Wright's widow Joy Beverley at the age of 91. I didn't know her well but recall those Beverley Sisters choruses on special Molineux occasions around two decades ago and always found her patient and courteous

Daleys On Tour For Happy Event

Steve Daley didn't make it on to centre stage during either of Wolves' two visits to Greece. And he was happy to remain on the fringes again now during an early-autumn follow-up visit to the country. The long-time Molineux midfielder and various members of his family have recently touched down on home soil from Rhodes, where they spent seven days celebrating their son Ryan's wedding.

Sad News From Australia

September 25th, 2015

Promotion-Winning Defender Passes Away

Joe Wilson, the popular Wolves full-back of the mid-1960s, has died in Australia at the age of 78. The news was brought to us by the Cumberland Echo, who have been eulogising about his lofty standing among the legends of Workington - not surprising as he made 347 first-team appearances for his home-town club.

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.

A Man For All Seasons

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.

A Molineux colour photograph of Joe Wilson, the former Wolves defender who has died in Australia. The full-back played 63 times for the club, including a brief role when they went down in 1964-65 and a much more sizeable contribution to their return two years later. He also served his home-town club Workington (over two spells), Nottingham Forest and Newport, as well as playing and coaching Down Under.

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.

Phil Parkes withstands a buffeting from the late Peter Osgood as Wolves do battle in front of more than 42,000 at Stamford Bridge in October, 1971. Bill McGarry's side were beaten 3-1 despite a goal by Jim McCalliog.


Trouble for Wolves in the 1949 FA Cup final as Terry Springthorpe hurtles across his line but fails to prevent Leicester's Mal Griffiths pulling a goal back. Billy Wright looks on anxiously but would be lifting the silverware soon enough thanks to Stan Cullis's side's 3-1 victory.


Alun Evans finds a tiny peep-hole to keep an eye on developments as Derek Dougan and Sam Ellis indulge in combat in Wolves' clash at Sheffield Wednesday early in 1967-68. Evans and the also-pictured Peter Knowles (left) scored in the 2-2 draw at Hillsborough, which had been a World Cup venue just over a year earlier.

Anglesey, 1989

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.

New Book By A Fan For The Fans

It's the dream of many a supporter.....being invited to go into print and trawl the memory bank for 20 great Wolves goals, 20 of the club's best signings and 20 memorable Black Country derbies. Lifelong Molineux fanatic Jim Heath was handed just such a task by our sister company Thomas Publications and has made a brilliant job of his first book, Wolves In 20/20 Vision.

Danny Hegan: 1943 – 2015

August 9th, 2015

A Wayward Talent With A Mischievous Side

Danny Hegan was sometimes praised and sometimes cursed. He was rarely ignored. Well over 40 years on from a Molineux stay containing much promise and no little controversy, stories about him still do the rounds whenever his old colleagues meet.

Des Horne: 1940 – 2015
