Non-League Swansong For Midfielder

Despite leaving Molineux nearly a decade ago, Simon Osborn’s playing career is just about surviving. The midfielder made 183 first-team appearances for Wolves but his stays at a long series of clubs since have been much briefer and he is also now co-running an air conditioning business.

When There Was A Humphrey About

Watch Out! How Wolves Missed Other Big Names

John Humphrey was spotted by Wolves when playing against them for a London junior team. But the club's success in landing him three and a half decades ago also became a case of rueing the ones who got away. The eagle-eyed scouts who locked on to him might easily have picked up some other stars of the future because the defender was by no means the only player in his side who made the grade.

Jimmy Recalls His Part In Wolves' Annihilation

Jimmy Melia may not recall much about the two dozen games he played for Wolves but he well remembers one of the 139 (with 11 goals) that he played for his next club, Southampton. The Saints signed the stylish schemer for ₤30,000 in November, 1964, and die-hard Wolves fans would prefer to forget the impact he made against their side.

It's Definitely Derek!

All-time record Molineux appearance-maker Derek Parkin has cleared up a question raised by a Wolves Heroes reader. Michael Capewell recently purchased two Huddersfield v Wolves programmes from the 1960s in which the popular full-back's Christian name appeared differently at a time when he was on the Yorkshire club's staff.

How Malcolm Realised His Driving Ambition

Talk of footballers and their flash sports cars normally relates to modern-day players. But Malcolm Finlayson, old enough in the countdown to his 80th birthday this summer to have been a granddad to any of the England stars heading soon for South Africa, has a collection that would make many a WAG look twice.

Success On Two Courses For Brazier

Colin Brazier got lucky in part-financing his participation in a golf trip staged by old football mates over Grand National weekend. The former Wolves utility man is the most reluctant of gamblers but was persuaded to have a punt on Saturday's big Aintree race and found himself cheering when Don't Push It gave Tony McCoy his famous first win in the event.

Manager Stan - Disciplinarian With A Velvet Touch

Bobby Mason has given an insight into football's caring side - with memories that partially put to flight Stan Cullis's reputation as the Iron Manager. The Black Country-born inside-forward was away on club duty 50 years ago when his wife Shirley gave birth back home in Penn to the second of the couple's three sons.

A Gift Bearing The Wright Fingerprints

A keepsake presented by Billy Wright in South Africa six decades ago is returning to the public domain in World Cup finals year. The wooden boot and ball was handed over as a thank-you by Wolves' most famous ever captain when the club toured the country in 1951.
