Supporters are remembered at annual service

Prior to Saturday's match against Bristol City, Wolves held their annual Memorial Service, affording fans the opportunity to remember loved ones who have passed away in the last twelve months.

Around 100 supporters and club officials attended the service at St Peter's Church, many of whom wore Wolves colours and then went on to Molineux for Saturday's game.

Reverend David Wright - Club Chaplain and the Rector of Wolverhampton - conducted the service, after supporters were given the opportunity to put forward the names of loved ones they wished to be remembered.

"I thought it went really well," Reverend Wright said after the service. "It gave supporters the chance to remember people that were very special to them, and it shows what a great commitment the club has to its fans.

"Everyone who I spoke to after the service was very grateful and pleased that they were able to attend," he continued.

"It's a great thing for the club to do, and it's something that you don't get from too many organisations - the opportunity for friends, family and fellow supporters to come together and remember people they had a great connection with, then go across to Molineux and cheer their team to victory."

Matt Grayson, Head of Marketing and Communications at Wolves, added: "The annual Memorial Service is something that we as a club are very pleased that we're able to do.

"Regardless of how things are going on the pitch, we are fully committed to playing our part in remembering those loyal supporters who unfortunately are no longer with us."

Just before kick-off on Saturday, a further act of remembrance took place as Wolves legends Steve Bull and Ron Flowers laid a wreath in front of the Jack Harris Stand.
