Mama Mia, A Greek Wedding!

Daleys On Tour For Happy Event

Steve Daley didn’t make it on to centre stage during either of Wolves’ two visits to Greece. And he was happy to remain on the fringes again now during an early-autumn follow-up visit to the country. The long-time Molineux midfielder and various members of his family have recently touched down on home soil from Rhodes, where they spent seven days celebrating their son Ryan’s wedding.

Sad News From Australia

Promotion-Winning Defender Passes Away

Joe Wilson, the popular Wolves full-back of the mid-1960s, has died in Australia at the age of 78. The news was brought to us by the Cumberland Echo, who have been eulogising about his lofty standing among the legends of Workington – not surprising as he made 347 first-team appearances for his home-town club.

The Boys Dun Well!

Birthday Bash With An All-Star Cast

A rare array of Molineux personnel, past and present, are to amass next month to celebrate a landmark in the life of the most eccentrically named of Wolves’ many supporter clubs. Forty years ago this autumn, three men in a pub towards the south-east edge of the Midlands decided to set up an organisation that has subsequently had the players round for Sunday lunch, persuaded Mike Bailey to referee one of their inter-club matches and hauled in members as far spread as Norfolk, Brighton and Sheffield.

Countdown Continues To Milestone Man

All Eyes On The Final 11

How far away are we now from learning the identity of the 1,000th man to play League football for Wolverhampton Wanderers? The landmark day or night is still sure to be at least a few months off but has come a lot closer with the flurry of debuts the club have handed out during the early weeks of this season.

More Frank Revelations

How Close Was That 1966 Dream?

Such is our unquenchable thirst for knowledge about former Wolves players that we have recently sniffed out more information from the post-Molineux career of Frank Wignall. A piece in a Nottingham Forest programme from 1980-81, which was a nostalgia article even then, has helped us fill in one or two more gaps on the one-time England centre-forward whose goals helped Ronnie Allen’s newly-promoted side stave off the threat of relegation in 1967-68.

There’s Only Two Phil Parkeses!

Namesake Keepers Top Backpass’ Latest Wolves Content

Issue 46 of Backpass contains the usual generous mentions of Wolves – more than enough to catch the eye of former Molineux boss Dave Jones anyway! The job-seeking manager has returned to the gold and black family in a big way in recent weeks with three appearances at golf days organised by or involving one-time Wolves players.

Didn’t I Use To Know You?

Keeper Colleagues Meet Again Nearly 50 Years On

“So what have you been up to for the last 45 years, mate?” We at Wolves Heroes just love to tell the stories of Molineux favourites to their adoring masses, usually some decades on. Equally, we revel in reconnecting long-lost former team-mates, so this was too good an opportunity to miss……

A Tale Of Two Rivals

Hard-man Defender Going Into Print

No man has totalled more competitive first-team appearances for Wolves and Albion than Alistair Robertson. Of all the players to have served both clubs, none has remotely approached his staggering combined haul of 762 – that’s 136 in gold and black and 626 while at The Hawthorns.

To Sweden – With Love

Why Daly Star Rose Overseas

Wolverhampton might think it had seen and heard the last of Maurice Daly, the talented young Irishman who turned his back on a new Molineux contract and walked into the arms of a Swedish girlfriend. Not so! Charlie Bamforth, our no 1 tracker-down of far-flung former players, has surpassed himself by locating him in the wilds of Scandinavia and now brings our readers the full fascinating story……

He Won’t Forget Ernie!

Bobby On The Trail Of Team-Mate Who Became His Best Man

Bobby Woodruff has thanked Wolves Heroes for reconnecting him with one of his Molineux team-mates from half a century ago – and made tracking down another a priority for 2015-16. The 74-year-old was grateful to be given contact details by us for Terry Wharton, the winger whose stay in the West Midlands considerable outlasted his own.
