An Impressive Roll Call



Welcome to one of the newer areas of the Wolves Heroes website.

Here, we not only list every player who has appeared in a League match for the club but also the order in which they did so.

For example, this is the place to learn that a few well-known and not-so-well-known men, such as Maurice Daly and Brian Caswell, have special niches in Wolves history that they presumably knew nothing about.
In 1975, Daly became the 600th man to be given a League debut by the club while the on-loan Caswell clocked in as the 700th more than a decade later.

Please take a slow trawl through to see the entire order but bear in mind that, if you are revisiting this area, we may have made alterations since you last looked owing to a recount and the eagle eye of our checkers, Donald Noble in Coventry and more recently southern-based Scott Pritchard, whose www.wolvescompletehistory.co.uk website is well worth a visit.
We stress that the list refers to League games only, not any of the cups, and stretches back nearly 130 years to when Wolves were one of 12 proud founder members of the competition.

The first 11 names given are the side who faced Aston Villa in a 1-1 home draw on September 8, 1888. Thereafter, players are added in the order in which they were blooded in the team. If two or more debuts came in the same game, we have first listed the man who would have come first in the traditional announcing of the line-up (ie a right-back comes before a left-half, a centre-half before a centre-forward etc).
Substitute outings count in our list, so there are some like Richard Smith and goalkeeper Graham Stack who appear, although they never started a League match for Wolves.
At the bottom of this post, we also list, in alphabetical order, the name of every player ever to have made a League appearance for the club. If you think we have omitted anyone, please contact us as soon as possible.
