Jody Craddock Testimonial Update


16:03 5th September 2013

Launch done - Museum incoming

Jody Craddock, Matt Murray and other former players invite you to join them in Wolves Museum to celebrate the launch of the new book “The Origins of Wolverhampton Wanderers” on Thursday 19th September 2013 from 6pm.


Jody, Matt et al will be in the Museum to meet fans and take a tour around this fantastic facility, along with the author of the book Patrick A. Quirke.


All proceeds from Ticket Sales, as well as £1 for every book sold, will be donated to the JC6 Testimonial Fund in aid of Balls to Cancer and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.


There are limited places available and tickets are £7 for adults and £4.50 for concessions and can be booked online here, from the Ticket Office on 0871 222 1877 or from the Megastore.


Jody’s testimonial was launched in fine style yesterday with fans being put through their paces and living the life of a footballer at the Compton training ground.


Jody and Matt led fans on a tour of the training ground after breakfast, before leading them in a rigorous 90-minute training session after which there was lunch – and an entertaining ‘Q and A’.


“It was a great start to the testimonial year and I think everyone really enjoyed it,” said Jody.


“It’s not long since I retired but it was nice to get back to the training ground and see a few familiar faces, before getting stuck into the training.


“The standard was fairly interesting, and I’d probably go as far as to say I saw a few things done yesterday which I have never seen before and probably didn’t think possible!”


Matt added:  “Yes it was fair to say some of the coaching was, how shall I put it, a challenge.


“But overall it was extremely enjoyable and great to see so many fans come forward to support Jody and his testimonial.


“It doesn’t surprise me though – Jody is a top man who was respected by everyone at Wolves including the supporters.”


A series of events are planned during the year and supporters can keep up to date on details by visiting or following on twitter @jc6testimonial


A proportion of the proceeds will go to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where Jody’s son Toby is continuing to receive treatment for leukaemia, and Balls to Cancer.


The Testimonial Committee would like to thank Wolves’ kit manufacturers PUMA for donating the trainingwear and Multipower and Angel Springs the drinks for yesterday’s event.
