West Midlands Return Sees Defender Among Friends

Adrian Williams found himself submerged in happy coincidences after enrolling on a coaching course run by the League Managers Association last Wednesday.

Hinton Still At Home Out West

We at Wolves Heroes were frustrated in our attempts to set up a rendezvous with Alan Hinton when the winger with the white boots was back in the Midlands almost three months ago. With time differences and phone call costs, what better way then by way of compensation to invite the former Wolves, Derby and England star to tell the story of his Molineux life (and beyond) than in an open letter to this website?

Elite XI From Half A Century's Viewing

Fred Remains On Job Market

Fred Davies insists he has not called time on his long football career - despite turning 70 and being otherwise occupied throughout 2009-10. The former keeper's last calling in the game was as a scout for League One promotion chasers Swindon but opportunity hasn't knocked for him this season.

One In The Eye For Former Defender

In more than two years as a Wolves player in the 1990s, Darren Simkin never missed a day's training because of injury. Just over a month before his 40th birthday, though, he has revealed how a recent mishap cost him a possible appearance in the National Fire Service Championships.

Post-Molineux Heroics From Glen

For making you feel old, there's nothing like the realisation that a player you recall as a raw teenager is now approaching veteran status. Remember the red-haired Glen Crowe at Molineux in the mid-1990s? Well, he's now 32 and has just joined League of Ireland premier division club Sporting Fingal.

Showell Stacked Up Air Miles

In his own quiet way, George Showell helped Wolves win two League Championships and an FA Cup and take several of Europe's leading scalps. But anyone running away with the idea that his football career petered out from the day he left Molineux would be wrong. He still managed to plant some sizeable imprints on the game.

Buckinghamshire/Kent, 1995

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010
A Very English Affair The pre-season of 1995/96 saw Wolves eschew the glamour (and presumably expense) of an overseas trip as they embarked on one of the most low-profile preparations the club had undertaken in the modern era.
