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.

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.

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.

We are delighted to announce that we have finally been successful in our number one winter mission. After several months of trying, we have located the whereabouts of Ron Stockin, the early 1950s Wolves player for whom we hope to belatedly obtain a League Championship winner's medal.

Keepsakes Aplenty Of The Prized Kind

Interested in the famous shirt that Peter Broadbent wore on the afternoon Wolves last lifted the FA Cup? Or is recent history more your thing, with curiosity directed more, for example, to the design on view in the return to European action against Crusaders at the start of last season?

Rivals-Turned-Pals On The Road To Recovery

"He came back on, though, didn't he? So obviously I didn't hit him hard enough!" Gerry Taylor is responding to reminders of how he clobbered Steve Kindon in a Burnley v Wolves match more than 50 years ago and left him needing treatment on the Turf Moor sidelines.
