Search Is Launched For Yarns From Distant Past

A Historical Twist For Wolves Heroes

Wolves forward McMillan presses in the Molineux clash with Manchester United in September, 1922.

Wolves Heroes are to launch a new feature in September aimed at discovering what playing for the club was like in Molineux’s early decades.

In our first year in cyberspace, we have tended to concentrate on players from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, with occasional items thrown in about the halcyon days of the 1950s.

There will be no let-up in that ‘core’ output but a gap has appeared on our schedule as we did not wish to continue our monthly ‘Molineux Milestones’ feature and find ourselves repeating information that has already been posted in the last year.

Once a month or so, starting some time in September, we therefore plan to present stories about Wolverhampton Wanderers life much earlier in the 20th century – and, if possible – as far back as the 19th century.

To make the idea a success, though, we are seeking and even relying on your help.

Did someone from your family or group of friends play for the club in a bygone age? Are you sitting on a Molineux anecdote that you would love to share with others? Maybe you know something about long-forgotten training methods, getting to games on public transport, playing in wartime……anything that’s a bit different.

Perhaps it’s about the relative financial hardships of players in more austere times or the equipment and kit that was then used.

As long as it is essentially about a player, manager, director or the team as whole, your story might be just what we’re looking for.

Wolves fans invade Molineux to celebrate promotion in 1932.

Our aim is to continue providing a rich source of stories about the heroes of past Molineux eras.
