Teenage Goal Ace Whose Star Burned Out

No Regrets For Colin Over Career That Promised So Much

Difficult though it may be for younger Wolves supporters to now appreciate, not much came off the Molineux conveyor belt for well over ten years when the club really needed to unearth some gems. In between the John Pender/Tim Flowers era in the first half of the 1980s and the arrival of Jamie Smith in the mid-1990s and more particularly of Carl Robinson and Robbie Keane a season or two later, it’s a struggle to come up with names of lads who made the grade.

Boot Story Has A Final Kick

1950s Gift From Billy Is Back From South Africa

A boot presented by Billy Wright as a thank-you when Wolves were on tour in South Africa more than 60 years ago has been returned for safe keeping and public viewing at Molineux. The prized souvenir was a gift from Billy to the late Cecil Crocker in return for help given in organising part of the marathon 12-game stay by Stan Cullis’s side in the republic at the end of the 1950-51 season.

Forward’s Patient Wait For Silverware

Look Hugh’s Been Honoured!

Hugh Curran is still striving to fix up a family meeting on one side or other of Hadrian’s Wall – to collect an honour that was handed over in his absence more than a year ago. The former Wolves striker remains resident in Oxford and knee problems dating back to when he had to call time on his playing career at the Manor Ground in the late 1970s contributed to him being unable to travel north to the function at which his football life was celebrated.
