This cutting from the 60’s is a 1967 shot of the WWLSC chairman in full dress with Robert Goddard, Dave Slade Slape, Willie Waldron, Sid Green, Martin Duckett, Dave Bell Chris Stonnell and other WWLSC fans in Molineux’s North Bank. The article At Home? That’s Quite a Trip published 31st Jan 1968 read:
There are plenty of football fans who are keen enough to follow their favourite football team through every match, home or away, throughout the season. But few for whom a home match means a journey over over 100 miles! Every Saturday a group of 35 lads board a train to travel throughout the country to follow the Wolves Founded halfway through last football season, the team’s London Fan Club spare no expense to follow their idols and have been known to spend up to £8 to go to one match. For each home match the group have a specially allocated corner in the North Bank at Molineux, and the picture shows Stuart Earl of Treville St London SW15 surrounded by the rest of the fans at a recent home game. Why do they go to such great expense to to follow Wolves in preference to one of the top London clubs? “Because we think Wolves are the best team in the first division” said Stuart. He added that the club was only going through a bad spell at present, and the fans were confident Wolves would be back on top form very soon.
Our first recorded member match though goes back a bit further when George Vincent went to the 8-3 thrashing of Chelsea in 1946 and the following year the 26th April - WW 6 Chelsea 4!.
