Andy Back In Town And In Good Company

Andy Gray is one of the heroes to have come forward and confirmed his place at a reunion of Wolves' 1980 League Cup winners in the Black Country in March. The Wembley match-winner against Nottingham Forest will be back among Molineux friends for a charity dinner organised by team-mate Mel Eves as part of his year as President of the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton.

Back On Course

Phil Parkes is already looking forward to this year's staging of the Ex Wolves Charity Golf Day after a highly successful revival of the event last autumn. The long-time former Molineux keeper is one of the many keen golfers in the gold and black ranks and has a special reason for being proud at the outcome from when Oxley Park played the role of hosts in early November.

A League Chance For Terry - But After Molineux

A night out among London's bright lights was about as close as Terry Thompson went towards hitting the big time with Wolverhampton Wanderers. Despite a promising Central League debut against Manchester United and captaincy experience with the club's A team, the four years he spent at Molineux as a teenager failed to bring him so much as a single first-team appearance.

Molineux Awash With Nostalgia

Dave Wagstaffe has been congratulated by two of his former Wolves team-mates via Facebook after his induction into the club's Hall of Fame on Thursday night. Bobby Gould expressed his delight at the news in a message he signed off 'Luv Gouldy' and we at Wolves Heroes were only too happy to pass on the heartfelt sentiments of Les Wilson in Vancouver.

Molineux Eyes Were On Midfield Ace

Almost a quarter of a century ago, I had the great good fortune to visit a lovely couple in Hoylake, Mr and Mrs Joe Mercer. I had heard one or two things from former Aston Villa players who could take Joe – but mostly leave him – and was always surprised at that because surely we all remember the super genial persona that exuded from the man whenever he was on television.

Festive Rush With A Trans-Atlantic Angle

Wednesday, December 19: Wolves' forthcoming home game against Ipswich gives us plenty of options for the subject of the nostalgia interview in the match programme and editor John Hendley plumped in the end for Derek Jefferson, who hadn't featured at any length in his pages for many years. Derek is an interesting, passionate character who was a less than a big success at Molineux. Now I understand better why that was the case.

A Night Out At Walsall For Knowles And Co

Fellows Park Beckoned England Youngsters

Footballers went to watch matches at other clubs a lot more in days gone by. There was next to no live coverage of games for a start, so you either went along in person or missed out altogether. Les Wilson recently told us how Albion's Tony Brown had picked him up outside Molineux one afternoon in the late 1960s, so the two Mancunians and boyhood United fans could travel together for a big European Cup match at Old Trafford. We can now illustrate, though, how this general love of dropping in on other teams' fixtures sometimes extended well beyond individuals to entire squads.

Oh To Turn Back The Clock!

Wolves' FA Cup tie at Luton this afternoon had already stirred up some nostalgic musings - then along came BBC Midlands Today with their excellent preview last night. As if there hadn't been enough reminiscing, what with this being the first clash of the clubs in the competition since Wolves won 4-1 at Kenilworth Road in the fifth round on their way to winning at Wembley in 1959-60, the Beeb topped the lot by delving into their archives.

Fifty Years Of Catching Up!

We at Wolves Heroes have started the year as we mean to go on by reconnecting two Molineux mates of well over half a century ago. The long email interview we conducted on here with Alan Hinton nearly three years ago has had a belated and pleasant spin-off in the form of a festive message to us from a talented Cullis era teenager who sadly didn't make it.
