www.wolvesheroes.com has no intention of taking it upon itself to decide upon the best players in Wolves’ history, so this Legends section is made up simply of the club’s top appearance-makers of all time.
It started as a rounder number, 75, but Jody Craddock, Karl Henry, Stephen Ward, Kevin Foley and Richard Stearman have since gone well past the 200-game mark and 80+ players are now listed here.
Appearances relate only to recognised peace-time competitions, so wartime football is not included in the stats, nor are friendlies – not even those that were played to packed houses at Molineux in the 1950s.
The number on the line immediately above the player’s name is his position in the pecking order of appearance-makers while the first number on the same line as his name is his total of Wolves outings.
The figure in bold in brackets is a relatively new addition to this site. So, for example, readers can see that Derek Parkin was the 561st man to play a competitive first-team game for the club, Kenny Hibbitt was the 570th and so on.
Throughout this site, appearances include those made from the substitutes’ bench.
