MEET THE PLAYERS 29th April 2005

London Wolves annual “Meet the Players” was held on 29th April at the team hotel for the Reading away match (what a great win). The players all seemed up for the match and they all applauded warmly as their choice of Players’ Player of the Season was also awarded WWLSC Player of the Season for the second time - Joleon Lescott.  Lee Naylor, runner up, said “My award was bigger and it’s still on my wall”. For the WWLSC Roll of Honour please click here

Glenn Hoddle had kindly agreed to continue this tradition and spent 45 minutes asking us questions before fielding the obvious one (amongst others) himself. 

Asked by Stef what he could say about the contract negotations, he spotted a water skiier and asked what on earth Kenny was up to.

More pictures, including Kenny without his hat on, Glenn’s pro-zone quiz questions, and some of the other answers from Glenn are on the Meet the Players page in the members’ section (here).

The players had come down from Wolverhampton to the warmest day of the year, brilliiant sunshine and a training day at England Headquarters at Bisham Abbey, well prepared for a great result at the Madejski on Saturday (won 1-2).

Meet the Players evening - 26th March 2004

London Wolves were very grateful to the Club and to Dave Jones for allowing us an hour with the players before the Chelsea match on 27th March at a nearby hotel.

On hand to greet us was Captain Paul Ince and several of the players.  Then we were able to join them in a relaxing and informal area for drinks before DJ sent them to bed at 9ish.  Already lined up as man of the season, Alex Rae was there, Sparky (Mark Kennedy), Vio Ganea, Lee Naylor and others.  We talked with Vio about his family’s move.

After an hour or so of general chat with the players, DJ and his main staff members kindly gave us an another hour to ask about anything we liked.

The obvious question about “how much did you get/why couldn’t you buy the players you needed/....” were openly answered by Dave.  He quoted his response to SJH’s question “how much would it cost to win the Premiership?” saying 70 million.   Abramovich could have got it cheaper then with Dave as his manager.

We were treated also to an in-depth review of the various injuries - especially to Matt and Joleon and George by the club doctor (DJ warned us not to ask!)

This was a really enjoyable evening with some really nice genuine people.

Players’ Evening - End of Season party- June

Second, at the end of season party / Players’ evening in Wolverhampton following the Tottenham match, the true Wolves Player of the Season was presented with our award by Chairman Stuart Earl.... Alex Rae, also scorer of Wolves only Premiership Goal of the month, was serenaded with a chorus of “he’s got no hair but we don’t care, Alex, Alex Rae”.  We wished Alex every success as he moves to Glasgow Rangers

The entire Club was also overwhelmed by the outstanding buffet provided by Tracy and Ryan Nelson and Lynne and Alan (Nobby) Blount.

Also attending were real heroes of the 1974 League Cup final....Goalkeeper Gary Pierce, in for the injured Phil Parkes (then on 25 a week plus a fiver if he played and kept a clean sheet!) made so many excellent saves to be the real man of the match.  And John McAlle, who made more appearances than any other player in the 73-74 season. If you haven’t bought the video do so! Stef Leonard auctioned three copies at the event.

Two of the most popular members of London Wolves were recognised for their outstanding work for the club - Dave Slape and Peter Woodifield - who were presented with tankards.

Here are Peter and Dave receiving their awards from John McAlle and Gary Pierce

                                                

Also at the meeting were our outstanding goalie  Phil Parkes (the real one) and Terry Wharton and Jean, his wife.   Here’s London Wolves member Robert looking on on what must have been a cracker of a joke, before they posed, and Terry addressing the meeting with Stuart.

 FULLERS’  BREWERY Visit October 2009

Our grateful thanks to John Roberts MD of Fullers BeDSC00053er Company and John Keeling, Head Brewer for a great evening out on the Friday before the Portsmouth “match”.  Fortunately the effects probably hadn’t worn off so we could get through the defeat by Pompey.  JK is a ManUre supporter, but JR was very pleased to be presented with honorary membership of London Wolves by chairman Stoo.

 You can book visits to the brewery - it’s a great couple of hours.  Call..020 8996 2063.

 

Meet in the Mawson Arms next doorS73R0030. - and Peter and Carol were first in... or maybe not as we found Stan hanging around in the bar (actually it was Henry Fuller) but maybe Stan should claim his inheritance!!

and soon the others arrived.  “have you seen my thingy, Steve?” asked Chairperson Stoo.  And then mine host arrived to welcome us, gear us up in glo jackets and introduce us to the amazingly knowledgable Head Brewer, John Keeling who showed us all the nuts and bolts of the brewery.

Thursday 11th OctDSC07359ober Molineux - A Charity Dinner organised by former Wolves ManaDSC07375ger Graham Hawkins with Graham Turner, Sludge Lees,  Ron Flowers, Gerry Harris, John Richards, Mike Bailey, David Wagstaffe and Geoff Palmer, Fred Davis, Wayne Clark Jim Barron and more including Doug Hope, a director when Doog was chairman.  We shared a  London Wolves table with our friends from DDCWWFCSC

Graham is the only person who was a Wolves fan when young, a Wolves player, and a Wolves manager.  To add to his uniqueness he also took Wolves into the top flight in 1983-4 in the Doog led rescue - a feat which took another 18 years etc to emulate under Dave Jones.  Graham persuaded Graham Turner to help him at the dinner, as well as an earlier one at Shrewsbury,  raising thousands for the Deanesly Oncology Centre at DSC07312New Cross Hospital and for the cancer unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
