Club Pride

CEO delighted for fans.

Jez Moxey today talked of the pride of Wolves’ stunning Easter performances – but admitted to a little frustration that the Sky Bet League One crown had finally been secured as a result of events half-way back up the M1.

The club chief executive, further thrilled by the size and backing of the gold and black army at yesterday’s victory at Leyton Orient, reflected the celebratory mood after Wolves had won a divisional title for the tenth time in their history.

“To seal the win with a 25-yard shot by James Henry was a fantastic way to finish the game and the fans went home delirious,” he said this morning.

“It has been a little frustrating that nothing has come quickly and, even yesterday, it required Milton Keynes Dons to draw (with Brentford). But the job has been done in a very professional way and we’re really pleased.

“It’s a nice feeling to wake up as champions of League One.”

Wolves, having had to wait a further nine days after the promotion-clinching win at Crewe to secure the silverware, now have another landmark in sight.

They will make history for amassing the biggest ever points haul at this level if they manage a win and draw, or better, from the final two games. Kenny Jackett’s team currently have 99.

The side face Coventry at Northampton’s Sixfields Stadium on Saturday before the season-ending home clash with Carlisle and Jez said: “It would be nice to get the points record.

“Everyone can take great pride at what has happened. We always knew it would be very tough at Orient and everyone was really pleased Carl Ikeme was named man of the match for his fantastic performance. 

“Kenny Jackett has been really professional all season. He has done his job in an unassuming way and he has always spoken in the media in a professional, matter-of-fact manner.”

The celebrations at the Matchroom Stadium reinforced the feeling that the bond between team and support is strong once more after the nightmare of the previous two years.

Now, Wolves are imploring their expectant fans to be on good behaviour to ensure that the Molineux farewell a week on Saturday brings only good memories – and not a repeat of the pitch invasions that marred the end of the spectacular victory over Rotherham at the start of Easter.

“One of the greatest achievements of the season has been the re-establishment of the relationship with the supporters and their love for the team,” Jez added. “That has been really pleasing.

“We had got to such a low from the two relegations and to have regained that support from our fans has been really important.

“We were very disappointed that the 6-4 victory we had on Friday was marred by people running on to the pitch when the game hadn’t finished and even when a shot missed.

“We are just going to appeal to everyone by saying: ‘Let’s enjoy the occasion, celebrate with the players and allow them to say thank-you with everyone staying in the stand and letting them parade the trophy in safety and in a proper way.”

Today is the last day for the ‘Join The Pack’ scheme – an initiative the club hope will be more attractive now Championship football is on the way back to Molineux. Jez Moxey today talked of the pride of Wolves’ stunning Easter performances – but admitted to a little frustration that the Sky Bet League One crown had finally been secured as a result of events half-way back up the M1.
