E & S Spelled It Out On Bob The Breakthrough Man

It wasn't the biggest Molineux story around at the time - the impending rise back to the top flight of Sammy Chung's Wolves took that billing. But much was still made that spring of the fact Bob Hazell became the first black professional player to represent England at any level.

Amateur Star Who Defied Convention

We at Wolves Heroes have been saddened by news of the passing of Pat Neil, a man who made four League appearances for the club and achieved a piece of Molineux history. The 79-year-old, who also made some unusual imprints in the life of Portsmouth, where he is best known, lost his long fight with leukaemia earlier this month.

Jim McCalliog is delving into his rich past to help sufferers of the illness that appears to be affecting more and more former players.

Crowe Excelled - Then Flew The Nest

Nothing pleases us more than to dwell on great deeds performed by players in the famous gold and black but we are occasionally prompted to hark back to what the same individuals accomplished in different colours. And one such case that came to our attention concerned Chris Crowe, the late forward who served at Molineux in the latter years under Stan Cullis.

Meeting Time, Half A Century On

They signed as Wolves apprentices on the same day, played together in the club’s reserves and knocked about socially. But Alun Evans and Brian Thompson hadn’t met for nearly 50 years until being reunited close to their common roots by Wolves Heroes.

Football's Big Effort To Repair Shattered Morale

Where the music world now leads the way in the face of adversity and tragedy, the area’s footballers – including several from Wolves – featured strongly in the show of defiance following similar atrocities more than 40 years ago. Images of the Birmingham pub bombings will still be stark in the minds of those old enough to remember them but the human race’s enduring spirit was shown again when a subsequent rallying call among the region’s clubs was royally answered.

Fluctuations Of The Most Dramatic Kind

Supporters down the decades and across the country have routinely described their side as up and down. Not knowing what teams are going to do next is part of sport's appeal but Wolves were genuinely in and out in the months in which they were trying to rebuild after the departure of Stan Cullis.

Ken Cruises In On A Happy Anniversary

It probably would have suited Kenny Hibbitt better if this had been a mixed foursome competition or something similar. Wedding anniversaries are always tricky days on which to try to escape with the lads to the golf course but the record-breaking midfielder managed the feat at Enville yesterday and showed the same dexterity in plotting a way among the prizes.

Ray In Reunion Mood

Wednesday, May 3: Again read with interest a feature in the Daily Mail in which Ray Aggio was seeking to make contact with friends from his youth. The former Molineux reserve wrote to the 'missing and found' section of the Saturday edition and hoped to be reconnected with mates from the 1957-58 Huxley Junior School football team in Edmonton, North London. Happily, he has had a good response and says: "I have already made contact with a couple of lads and been given addresses of a few more."

Molineux Return To Highlight 65th Celebrations

Alan Sunderland, Steve Daley and Barry Powell have been targeted as possible guests for when one of their Molineux contemporaries reaches a landmark birthday later this year. John Rutter captained the Wolves side who reached the FA Youth Cup semi-final in 1970-71 but, while various team-mates went on to big things at first-team level, he remained unfulfilled at Molineux and had to move on for the long senior career he enjoyed.
