One of the founder members of the English Football League in 1888, Wolves began life 11 years earlier in the Blakenhall area of the city, or town, as it was then.

Under the guidance of Molineux icon, Stan Cullis, the team reached legendary status in the 1950s. Among the many achievements, both corporately and individually, the latter includes Billy Wright becoming the first player to reach 100 England caps.

Both Cullis and Wright are honoured by having stands named after them, as well as statues located outside the stadium.

Following darker times – both on and off the pitch – in the 1980s, Wolves have bounced back to reach the English Premier League on two occasions.

The current climate is one of great optimism for Wolves fans, as new owners followed by heavy investment sees the Championship club looking to make it a hat-trick of top-flight appearances come 2018/2019.

In then meantime, we look forward to welcoming the Molineux men to Oswestry.
