Breathtaking End To Masters Hopes

Wolves were undone by some spectacular 'home city' finishing in tonight's Selco Central Masters at Nottingham's Trent FM Arena. Wolves, the 2008 Grand Masters and beaten in last year's national final, again performed well, only to narrowly miss out in the evening's last fixture.

Tough Assignment In East Midlands

Wolves have been handed a tough task as they set out this weekend to regain their crown as Masters champions. Having seen their impressive defence of the title ended at the national semi-final stage last September by eventual winners Tranmere, they find themselves in unusual company.

Talented Kid Wolves Found On Their Doorstep

We are greatly indebted to Terry Palmer - a lifelong Wolves fan now based in Worcester - for sending us various pictures of his uncle, Doug Taylor. At a time of intense competition for places, the 1950s centre-forward made only three League and Cup appearances for the club but went on to serve Walsall for a couple of seasons before dropping into non-League football.

Right Place, Wrong Time For Peter

On the list of players who have got away from Wolverhampton Wanderers and then spectacularly pulled up trees elsewhere, you would think Peter Withe would rank very high. As the winner of League Championship medals with two Midlands clubs and scorer of the only goal in a European Cup final for one of them, he has a CV to die for.

Happy Memories Of Winger Who Fled West

It was Bill McGarry who played as big a part as anyone in paving the way for Jimmy Kelly to spend the best part of his life in the American state of Oregon. The formidable Wolves manager called in the then 20-year-old winger to tell him he needed to become more big-headed and confident about his undoubted abilities.

Play-Off Battle Approaching A Crescendo

Former Wolves players continue to be well to the fore in the gripping drama of the play-offs. David Kelly, Rob Edwards, Dave Jones, Mark Kennedy, Jay Bothroyd, Gabor Gyepes and Mike Stowell were among those involved on the pitch or in the dug-out in the Championship semi-finals featuring Nottingham Forest, Blackpool, Cardiff and Leicester.

Long Career Of The 'Other' Molineux Buckley

'Being in the right place at the right time' is how Paddy Buckley modestly explains his phenomenal haul of 33 goals in Wolves' reserves in 1966-67. History would suggest, however, that he was in the right place at the wrong time by being at Molineux at all over the same period as Dave Wagstaffe.

Up From Down Under

Alun Evans, the former Molineux teenage star who Wolves Heroes were delighted to track down last May, is back in the UK. We were just setting off for a meeting with Frank Munro earlier this week when we bumped into the one-time England under-23 international and his daughter Abbey in Wolverhampton city centre.
