Condolences to family of Bill Guttridge

Former Wolves defender Bill Guttridge has passed away at the age of 82.

Darlaston-born, Bill joined Wolves as an amateur in 1947, turning professional a year later and making his first two senior appearances in the Christmas and Boxing Day fixtures with Aston Villa in 1951.

He spent six years at Molineux, mainly in the reserves, but made seven first team appearances and featured in the 4-4 draw with West Bromwich Albion in the 1954 Charity Shield at Molineux.

He moved to Walsall in November, 1954, making over 200 appearances for the Saddlers and helping them to two promotions before retiring in 1962.

The club would like to send their condolences to Bill’s two daughters and the rest of his family and friends.
