Dave Wagstaffe has revealed that he used to suffer panic attacks during his playing career.
The much-loved former Molineux winger, a notorious worrier and so nervous before games that he used to sneak off to the toilet for a cigarette, told www.wolvesheroes.com that he was never comfortable in the spotlight.
“If ever I went to the pictures or the theatre, I used to sit on the end of the row, so I could nip out quickly. And I was usually on the end of team photographs. Maybe that’s also why I played on the wing – in case I suddenly wanted to run back up the tunnel!”
* The closing date for the competition (posted on August 14) that offers two copies of Waggy’s Tales as prizes is this Saturday, August 30 (5pm).
