Caring Hands Went To Harry's Aid

Articles about former Wolves players, managers, directors, physios, secretaries and scouts adorn the pages of this website. But this piece about a member of the match-day emergency services team is a first. We wouldn't have deemed it sufficiently newsworthy for inclusion had it not been for the huge response we recently received when posting the photo (right) on Facebook.

New Cup Opened Another Route To Glory

I have this obsession with Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeepers. I wrote a book about them some 30 years ago and these days keep tabs fastidiously on what the current and former keepers are up to. I guess not many folks know (or perhaps care) that there are currently 11 professional keepers at Wolves. Quite how they are all kept happy when there are only three teams to play in, I have no idea.

After last year's enforced cancellation, former Wolves players were back in big numbers on the golf course as a series of new reunions helped make their annual competition another excellent day for local charitable causes. Oxley Park, so often the favoured course for Wolves favourites in past decades, was the setting for a turn-out swelled by the presence of several outsiders from other clubs.

Richly Deserved Honour For Rachael

Tuesday, August 4: Much pride around Wolverhampton today when it was announced that Rachael Heyhoe Flint was to have some gates named after her at Lord's. This is a serious honour for anyone with the background in cricket that she had...she even rang the bell once to signify the start of play in a Test Match at the sport's spiritual home.

Promotion Winner Paul Proudly Takes His Place

I told Claire, I don’t want no fuss, just a quick visit and then out. I’m playing golf this afternoon.” What was this……The Guv’nor looked slightly uneasy and even a shade embarrassed? Convivial gatherings with him as the centre of attention are apparently not his thing.

McCalliog's Welcome - A Trip To Stafford

We at Wolves Heroes are delighted to have played a part in producing Jim McCalliog's imminent autobiography - and to have reminded him where his first day at the side of Bill McGarry took him. We were flattered to be asked late in the day to prepare his Wembley Wins, Wembley Woes book for the printers and to have the chance to run an eye over the text.

Another accolade has landed in recognition of Les Wilson’s phenomenal football achievements – this time by personal delivery. The former Wolves utility man has already been decorated with a host of awards during his long career as a player, coach and administrator but admitted to being shocked - in the nicest possible way - by this one.
