Chorus Of Compliments For Man Who Spotted JR

John Richards has added his voice to the round of tributes that have come with the death of the scout who discovered him and launched him on his decade and a half of Molineux excellence. Tony Penman's name doesn't immediately come to mind when we are speaking of Wolverhampton Wanderers heroes but we can safely say the club's 1970s path would have been much tougher had it not been for his expert eye.

Games That Were Fit To Be Played Before Royalty

It's a sad fact related to the passage of time that only one FA Cup winner from Wolves is still alive. Yet, as we continue to doff our cap to Ron Flowers for his part at Wembley that day and so much more besides, the thoughts of the nation are concentrated on one of the dignitaries introduced to the Wolves and Leicester teams at the showpiece a full 11 years earlier.

Nostalgic Look Back At Craven Cottage Conquest

From an era long before VAR reared its very ugly head and while football footage was largely shown in black and white, we look back at the last time - before Friday - that Wolves had won a top-flight match away to Fulham. We are indebted to lifelong fan and author-publisher Clive Corbett for inspiring this in-depth look at the 2-1 victory registered by Ronnie Allen's newly-promoted team at Craven Cottage on the opening day of 1967-68.

Legendary Striker's Least Remembered Molineux Goal

You needn't check the date - April Fool's Day has safely passed. And what we are about to write isn't a mistake. Steve Bull's first Molineux goal wasn't the one he scored from close range in a Freight Rover Trophy win over Bournemouth in Graham Turner's early months in charge.

Honour Due In Memory Of Star Forward

Following our success in tracking down Ron Stockin, we are now playing a part in trying to have a medal struck in honour of another League Championship winner with Wolves connections. Bryn Jones narrowly missed out on title glory when at Molineux, his final season in the West Midlands ending with Major Frank Buckley's side being pipped by Arsenal by a single point at the end of 1937-38.

Of Wolves And England

Wednesday March 3: Am looking forward to the forthcoming book by lifelong Wolves fan Bob Bannister about all the England internationals who have played for the club. This has been a major project for a man whose presence at Molineux dates back to just after the war.

A 'Transfer' And A Retracing Of Old Steps For Clive

Clive Ford has used lockdown to reconnect with one of his big friends from Lincoln City - while also adjusting to being away from the home at which he and his wife were foster parents for 20 years. The West Bromwich-born former Wolves forward is still in Cumbria but has down-sized considerably from the hectic, fulfilling life he once knew.

Warm Applause As Final Whistle Blows

Yet another tribute to Graham Hughes has reached us - from a fellow fan who was disappointed to miss his funeral. Glyne Wetton knew the much-loved Wolves historian for decades more than most of us, family excepted, and saw him long after many had had our final meetings.

Death Of Mick Kent Reported

Sad News Of Early 70s Prospect

Mick Kent, who made two appearances in Wolves' first team 50 years ago, has died at the age of 70. The Yorkshireman was one of the last of the Wath Wanderers products, signing at Molineux in 1968 and spending five years with the club.

Reliant On The Few - No Worries!

Thirteen players shared the scoring duties when Wolves won the Fourth Division in 1987-88 - and the same number did so when the Division Three crown was added 12 months later. Which makes it quite extraordinary to consider how few players were on the score-sheet when the First Division title came to Molineux in 1953-54 for the first time.
