Sundy’s Final Word

Changing Priorities Of Wembley Hero

Alan Sunderland has marked the 30th anniversary of his dramatic winner in the ‘Five Minute FA Cup Final’ by turning his back on much of this season’s Wembley showpiece. Sunderland scored one of the occasion’s most dramatic goals when he turned in Graham Rix’s left-wing cross to give Arsenal victory over Manchester United in a breathtaking late flurry of scoring in May, 1979.

Dave Jones’ dramatic life story, on and off the pitch, is to be fully told for the first time in his impending autobiography, No Smoke, No Fire.

A Cup Winner At Last

Daley Star Of The Circuit

A distant look at the League Cup when he was an unused member of Wolves’ 1974 Wembley squad was as close as Steve Daley went to lifting silverware in his playing career.

Simo Eyes Another Promotion

Shrewsbury Fly The Midlands Flag

Paul Simpson will be aiming for the sixth promotion of his career when he leads Shrewsbury out for their League Two play-off final against Gillingham on Saturday.

Not Such A Shaw Thing

Full-Back Proving Elusive

Following our successful ‘hits’ on any number of players who had disappeared off the Molineux radar, we are now seeking help in locating former Wolves full-back Bernard Shaw.

The Many Moves Of Norman Bell

A CV To Be Proud Of

For someone who served only two clubs in the decade and a half that made up his professional football career, Norman Bell has undergone plenty of ‘transfers’ in his post-playing years. The striker who became one of the game’s earliest ‘Supersubs’ when frequently stepping off the Molineux bench to good effect in the early 1980s has swapped jobs more often than many players now change clubs.
