Wolves have been shocked and saddened to hear that Dave Wagstaffe, the iconic winger of the 1960s and 1970s, has suffered a heart attack.
Waggy, as he has always been known in his time as both a player and a resident in Wolverhampton, had the attack early on Sunday morning and is now recovering after surgery at the city’s New Cross Hospital.
One of the last of the great traditional wingers, he was always a crowd favourite in his 12 years with the club during which time he made 404 appearances including the 1974 League Cup Final when Wolves beat Manchester City – the team he moved to Molineux from on Boxing Day 1964.
Dave, who celebrated his 70th birthday earlier this month, was a very popular inductee into the club’s Hall of Fame at the latest dinner in January, with many of his family and friends in attendance. He is pictured on stage during the event at Molineux.
The club have spoken to Dave's partner Val this morning and everyone at Wolverhampton Wanderers would like to send their very best wishes to Dave for a speedy recovery.
