Alan Hinton has been feted once more for his huge contribution to football in Seattle and the wider Washington area. The former Wolves, Derby and England winger was the centre of attention at a function aimed at raising awareness of his adopted region's sporting past.
By Popular Demand.....Jim On Return VisitJim McCalliog is making another visit to Molineux next month - and taking the opportunity to also honour the memory of a team-mate from elsewhere. The proud Scot has already crossed the border once this season with Wolverhampton as his destination, taking in the Premier League home game against Southampton in the autumn.
Bully's Big Winner Made Major History

Rampaging Wing-Back Nears Milestone
Matt Doherty is on the brink of a significant breakthrough in his flourishing Wolverhampton Wanderers career. The Dubliner, whose form in his more attacking role under Nuno Espirito Santo continues to amaze, has played 241 times for the club and is therefore not close to an obvious major landmark.
