Welcome to the new area we promised you on www.wolvesheroes.com for 2014.
Nowhere else, we believe, is there such a concise and easy-to-follow list of the men who have netted more Wolverhampton Wanderers goals than any others down the decades.

Here, we name the top 58 scorers in the club’s history (all those who have reached the 40 mark), complete with the games in which they notched for the first and last times, the number of hat-tricks they thrilled supporters with and what we regard as having been their most special day in gold and black.

So, if ever you wonder where Andy Mutch or Hugh Curran, for example, stand among Wolves’ all-time top marksmen, or what we see as having been Jimmy Murray’s best Wanderers day, you now have the information close to your fingertips. Goals include only those scored for the club in League and cup matches and not those contributed in wartime competition.
