The new full-time scholars to Wolves Academy have been welcomed to the club at an Induction Evening staged at Molineux.
The evening was attended by the family and friends of the players, along with many of the Wolves Academy staff, and Club Secretary Richard Skirrow, who oversaw the players registrations with the club.
Academy Manager Gareth Prosser is pictured with the eight scholars who will be returning to Compton on a full-time basis ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.
Back row from left: Aaron Hayden, Ben Priest, Regan Upton, Harry Burgoyne, Ryan Rainey, Jesse Devers.

Aaron is a central defender from London who has played for Chelsea and England while Ben is also a central defender, from Kidderminster, who has been with the Academy for five years.
Regan is a strong-tackling midfield player who previously joined from Burton Albion while Harry Burgoyne a goalkeeper from Ludlow who has been with the Academy since Under-12 level.
Wolves have also recruited from Ireland with Ryan Rainey a defender from Letterkenny in County Donegal, Jesse Devers a forward from Ballina in County Mayo and Anthony Breslin a full back from Dublin.
All three Irish players are regulars in the Republic of Ireland under-17 team.
Tendai Matinyadze is a creative midfield player from Tipton and another who has been with the Academy since the Under-12 age group.
Good luck to all the lads as they set out full-time with the Academy next season.
