A Chin-Wag With Waggy
Winger Steps Into The Breach
John Richards is only up to no 9 in his Player Q & A feature but has already decided it’s high time he sent for one of Wolves’ most famous no 11s.
Following the in-depth interviews in this area of the site with Bert Williams, Mike Bailey, Andy Thompson, Kenny Hibbitt, Matt Murray, Derek Parkin, Don Goodman and JR himself, the spotlight now switches to Dave Wagstaffe.
As an author and skilled raconteur, Waggy is excellent value in any reminiscing session and will be targeted by Wolves Heroes’ co-owner later this month.
Richards plans to arm himself as usual with questions from our readers and Molineux Mix members, so please get you thinking caps on and let us know which particular subjects you would like to be covered in their conversation.
Normal email addresses apply, namely firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com – alternatively, please go through our counterparts at Molineux Mix (www.molineuxmix.co.uk). The deadline for questions is Wednesday, March 14.
“I obviously still see plenty of Waggy with us both living in the area and it’s always great fun to meet up with him and chat about Wolves teams of the past,” Richards said.
“Although I played a lot of matches alongside him – and have to thank him for setting up many of my goals – he joined the club quite a few years before me and has clear memories of his time in the immediate post-Cullis era.
“What sometimes gets overlooked around here is how many games he also played for Manchester City. He had a long career there as well before moving to the West Midlands over Christmas, 1964.”
Wagstaffe was yesterday contacted both via email and phone by his former team-mate Les Wilson as they came to terms with news of the sad passing of their mutual friend Davy Jones, of The Monkees fame.
Waggy gave his usual enlightening performance when interviewed by Paul Franks on Radio WM last night on the subject of his old boyhood pal.
