Once again we turn to our keeper after an outstanding defensive season, individually saving at least 15 points.

2020-21 PEDRO NETO

Pedro ended the year with a serious injury but still finished as our top scorer following Jiminez’ broken skull from a David Luiz “tackle”


2019-20 Adama Traore

Terrifying defences is his trade!

2018-19 2018-19 Raúl Jiménez

Wolverhampton Wanderers number 9.  Prolific scorer as well leading the assists table, his award is very well deserved.  His outststanding start is summarised here-

Covid Restrictions and the horrific injury to  Raúl led to a two year delay in presenting his trophy.  That was finally achieved by Dave Stuart and Pater Abbott before the Chelski draw in May 2022

Jiménez made his unofficial debut with the team on 22 July in a semifinal match against VfL Bochum in the H-Hotels Cup, where he failed to convert a penalty, the first following his perfect conversion rate. On 11 August, Jiménez marked his competitive debut for Wolves by scoring the equalizing goal that earned the home team a 2–2 draw with visiting Everton on the opening weekend of the Premier League season. On 16 September, Jiménez scored the only goal in the victory over Burnley. (Pictured) On 22 September, he provided an assist to João Moutinho to tie the match 1–1 against Manchester United in the league. On 29 September, he provided an assist to Ivan Cavaleiro to score the first goal in a 2–0 victory over Southampton. On 6 October, Jiménez provided the assist for Matt Doherty's goal in his team's 1–0 away victory over Crystal Palace; it was his third assist of the season, meaning Jiménez was involved in a goal in each of the previous four league games for Wolves, assisting in the past three after scoring in the game prior to that. On 11 November, he provided the assist to Ivan Cavaleiro in the 1–1 draw against Arsenal, taking his season assist tally to four. Jiménez scored Wolves' first goal in a 2–1 win against Chelsea at Molineux on 5 December. Jiménez scored the first goal in Wolves's 2–0 win over Bournemouth on 15 December. This was the first time Wolves had won three consecutive Premier League games and the first time Wolves had won three in a row in the top flight of English football since 1980. (Source Wikipedia)

Raúl-Firing Wolves into Europe-Again

2017-18 Championship Champions Conor Coady

Fan votes put the artistic Ruben Neves as their player of the season but London Wolves members were much more aware of the outstanding captaincy and defence offered by Conor, who won the vote ahead of Ruben.   Stuart presented the trophy at Molineux ahead of the Premier League match versus Huddersfield 25/11/18, with the help of Joey Blackwell. Chairman Earl’s party included Joey Blackwell ,  Tony Griffin, and Dodges and Abbs wolves.  (Pic Veronika Fabisiak).

2016-17 “Dangerous” Dave Edwards

Another very tight contest with Dave Slape’s and Peter Woodifield’ sponsored player Dave Edwards just edging out Helder Costa.  Dave, Peter (also sponsoring Dave E)  and Peter Abbott presented the Welsh International with his trophy before the win over Yeovil in the EFL (Carabao) Cup

2015-16 Matt Doherty  (The Doc)

A dead heat on first votes with Jack Price but the decision went to the Doc for our fortieth award.  A switch to left back paid dividends and Matt, who’d told us a year earlier that he should be scoring more, did just that.   Now our number one choice at left back and a great competitor.  The trophy was presented by John Golding, Peter Woodifield, Dave Slape, Peter Abbott and Harley Bill at Molineux 23rd August 2016 before the EFL Cup second round match versus Cambridge

2014-15 Championship Richard Stearman

Richard joined Wolves from the Foxes in 2008 to promptly gain an England U21 cap and a Championship winner’s medal with promotion to the premier league.   7 years 234 appearances and 6 goals later he won seven player of the season awards from the Wolves Players, Fans and many of the fan clubs for what, much against popular opinion (83%), was to be his last season at the club.  Our presentation by Treasurer Carol Travel Secretary Peter and Secretary Dave thus had to be at The Cottage, two days before Richard makes his Fulham debut, to whom Wolves had sold him, with our best wishes for his future success.

2013-14 League 1  Kevin McDonald

Wolves were crowned League 1 Champions breaking league and club records all the way..   In a close run fight between goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, midfielders Bakary Sako and  Kevin McDonald, full back Scot Golbourne and striker Nouha Dicko…….Kevin McDonald ran out the winner.   Joe Feehan presented Kevin with his trophy prior to the Brentford match.and we also caught up with Bakary and Mitch presented his trophy at last.

2012-13 Championship - BAKARY SAKO in his first season at the club.  We hoped to present the award before the Charlton match but Bakary is carrying an injury and could not  travel so Manager Dean Saunders accepted the trophy on Bakary’s behalf - here presented by Chairman Earl.

The brilliant Wales #1 gave Wolves the best shot at staying in the Premier League.   In spite of being injured for the last few matches he was by far and away the most prolific shot-stopper in the League, unfortunately, but he joins the honoured few who have won the trophy for a second time.    When the trophy was presented to him, nice man that he is, he was full of praise for Carl Ikeme’s performances in goal as we returned to the Championship

Wayne was presented with the trophy by James Perkins, assisted by dad Dean, Simon Overmee, Robin Prickett and secretary Slape.



A landslide vote for Wolves latest England player (since Bully that is).  The second top “assists” player in the Premier League - Matt Jarvis is our player of the season 2010-11.   The presentation was made at Molineux on Sunday 21st August before the first home match of the season against Fulham and which was also the the tribute to Frank Munro.  Peter Abbott,  Dave Slape, Roy Eagles, and  Peter Bartlett joined Chairman Earl for the presentation.

2009-10 Kevin Doyle

2009-10 Wolves’ record signing has made an outstanding contribution to our survival attempt in our second season in the Premiership.  Kevin Doyle was presented with the trophy at the 2009-10 Meet the Players (pix) at the team hotel on the night before the away draw at Craven Cottage.

2008-9 Sylvan Ebanks-Blake

2008-9 - the Championship winning season resulted in a strong result for golden boot winner Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, ahead of Kevin Foley and Kights.  The presentation was made by Graham Stancombe, Paul Coles,and  Dave Slape,  before the Real Valladolid pre-season friendly on August 8th one week ahead of the Premiership kick off. We’d like to thank Peter Harrington, photographer, for permission to use this photograph of Sylvan scoring at Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship (and second consecutive Golden Boot) season.

2007-8 Wayne Hennessey

The 2007-8 winner  Wayne Hennessey was presented with his trophy at our Meet the Players event on Friday 28th March before the last London game of the season.  Chairman Earl performed the presentation - citing Wayne’s amazing 17 clean sheets already.



 Matt Murray 2006-7

2006-7 our winner of the player of the season trophy was Matt M u r r a y, g o a lk e e p e r e x traordinaire and responsible for getting us to the playoffs with astonishing match winning and saving saves.   Peter Woodifield, Trevor and Callum Reed present Matt with the trophy at the first home game of the season.  Matt had a bad shoulder injury the day before the first leg of the play off finals in May 2007 against WBA, giving Wayne Hennessey his League debut with Wolves, but Matt has looked to recover well over the summer break.

2005-6 Joleon Lescott


London Wolves 2005-6 Player of the Season is again Joleon Lescott, one of only two players to win the award three times.  Unfortunately, we were soon to learn that the club had sold “the best defender in the Championship” to Premiership Everton for around £4.5million (installments over 2 years +). Our very best wishes go to Joleon as he makes the step up.  He missed Wolves entire season in the Premiership with knee injuries.  Matt Murray very kindly presented Joleon with his trophy in 2010!

2004-5 Joleon Lescott

Congratulations to Alex Rae our 2003-4 winner on winning a Scottish SPL Championship with a last day victory over Hibs and with Celtic surprisingly beaten by Motherwell.  Rangers won by one point.

At the London Wolves Meet the Players evening on 29th April 2005 Chairman Stuart Earl presented our choice of Player of the Season with his trophy.  Joleon, winner in he promotion season again edged out 2000-1 winner Lee Naylor, generally also agreed to be most improved player of the season.  Lee says he still has the trophy on his wall.  Joleon also said that it was very special to have been presented with the Players’ Player of the Season at the tribute dinner to Sir Jack two nights earlier.

2003-4 Alex Rae

For the Premiership season 2003-4 our choice was Alex Rae, seen here being presented with his trophy by Chairman Stoo.  London Wolves wish Alex every success at his 2004-5 club, Glasgow Rangers.  We’re delighted to congratulate him on his Champions Medal as Rangers take the Scottish Premier League championship from Celtic on the last day of the season.

Alex, season top scorer with 8 league and cup goals, kept our hopes alive of staying in the Premiership long beyond the pundits’ predictions, and indeed in the FA Cup when Kiddy nearly took us out, and while Camara, controversially awarded the club’s own award before deciding he didn’t want to stay, was missing opportunity after opportunity. Alex won the Premiership Goal of the Month award too, for his stunning shot against Bolton which gave Wolves our first ever away Premiership point in a 1-1 draw.. and this well known picture comes from the First Division match against Derby

2002-03 One of the players missed most of all during the premiership season was centre back Joleon Lescott who won our Player of the Year award for the promotion season.  Here he is at Molineux receiving his award from Dave Bracher, Dave Slape and Jack Sammuels.

2001-2002 Alex Rae

Alex was presented with his trophy by John Engleman , Alan Blount, Ivan Gillespie, and Don Brierley before the Burnley match

*  In 2004-5 the divisions were renamed Premier League, Championship, 1st and 2nd Divisions.

**The 1st division became the Premier league (sometimes Premiership until 1999) at the end of the 1992-93 season - the 2nd, 3rd and 4th divisions were re-named the 1st, 2nd and 3rd divisions respectively.

and, if the award had been made,  the 1967-68 candidate would almost certainly have been The Doog and after that  ”King” John Richards would have walked away with the award a few times too.
