WELCOME TO THE LONDON WOLVES NEWSLETTER ARCHIVES courtesy of Phil O’Connor, Dave Slape, Bones and Matthew Hawthorne.  We have copies of the newsletter here from the very first one in 1968, the third which includes a letter from our Life President, Derek Dougan, (reproduced at the bottom of this page here) up to current days

The files on this page are back copies of the Wolverhampton Wanderers London Supporters Club Newsletter now edited by Stef Leonard.  Left click on one of the   icons in the newsletter column and it should open a copy of the newsletter in your browser and you should be able to download a copy.  email us if you have any problems   Regular items include match reports, the chairman’s and editor’s view on what’s going on at Wolves, advanced notice of events, Dave Slape’s diary of years gone by, and Peter Woodifield’s Molineux diary, and Paul Coles’ “Pint Sized Paul’s Pubs”.  

The December 2004 Newsletter is in normal page format but the others back to March 2002 are in A3 printer’s proof layout, so you may find navigation tricky at first, but it’s well worth the effort.  Prior to March 2002 they are back in normal format from scanning Dave Slape’s “archives”.  

You will need a copy of Adobe Reader (which is free) to read the newsletters. There is a link at the bottom of this page, but be careful to “untick” software downloads e.g. McAfee which you may not want..
