1960s Half-Back A Legend In Scotland

George Miller, part of Molineux's mid-1960s Scottish contingent, has died from cancer at the age of 69. The Glaswegian was brought south in the autumn of 1964 for the then considerable sum of £28,500, making his debut in a home defeat against Nottingham Forest on October 31.

From Office Hand To Marking Bobby Charlton

There can hardly have been a story like it in post-war Molineux history - the tale of how an accountant took a phone call at his office one Thursday and was asked if he fancied a game for Wolves the following Saturday. It wasn't any old match either but a senior debut 41 years ago this week in front of more than 53,000 against the reigning League champions and the side who would lift the European Cup five months later.

Postman Paul On His Rounds

Christmas might be a great time for the vast majority of us but, as in his playing career, Paul Jones is finding that it's one of the busiest parts of his year.

No Doubting Thomas Contentment

Dave Thomas, the former England midfielder who failed to come off as a £325,000 Molineux signing, insists he's perfectly happy in his retirement - and has the sun tan to prove it. The 58-year-old stood down in July following 17 years as a PE teacher, having previously lost the match-day summarising work he did on the airwaves for several seasons.

McAlle Back On Familiar Ground

John McAlle has been busy retracing some of the steps he took as a well-travelled 1970s Wolves defender - with family visits to the Channel Islands. Approaching 40 seasons on from when he played for a Wanderers side who won 9-0 in a friendly against a Jersey Select X1 in St Helier, McAlle has made six or seven hops off the mainland with his wife because they have a daughter living on the holiday isle.

Ron Flowers is preparing for a sentimental return to Doncaster on Saturday as a Wolves fan - but his Staffordshire-bred grandson will be cheering for the opposition!

A Valuable Dig In Alex's Memory

A medal won by one of Wolves’ 1939 FA Cup final players is back in safe keeping after lying buried in a garden in Hampshire for the best part of 20 years. The treasured keepsake, belonging to Molineux inside-forward Alex McIntosh, was taken by his widow Gwen to show her five-year-old grandson Craig in Portsmouth in the early 1980s.

New Direction Suits Derek

Derek Jefferson has used a freezing white-knuckle ride to launch a major fund-raising initiative at the charity he launched eight years ago. Despite having turned 60 this autumn, the former Wolves defender has been white water rafting with his sons to kick-start a campaign that aims to bring in £250,000 by the end of 2011 for Sports Pursuits - an organisation extolling his Christian and sporting ideals.
