Wembley Heroes Return

25 years on from Burnley triumph

It is 25 years since Wolves lifted the Sherpa Van Trophy in front of 80,000 fans at the old Wembley Stadium, with a 2-0 victory over Saturday’s opponents, Burnley (Kick-off 3:00pm, click HERE for tickets).


And to mark the occasion some legendary Wolves players from that special day will be introduced to the crowd prior to kick-off.


Currently confirmed to attend are Steve Bull, Andy Thompson, Ally Robertson, Floyd Streete, Mick Holmes and Mark Kendall’s widow Gaynor.


Several of the players from the match-winning squad of 1988 are unfortunately unavailable due to continuing football commitments, including then boss Graham Turner, whose Shrewsbury side have their final game of the season against Portsmouth.


The Club has secured the Sherpa Van Trophy on loan from the Football League and fans visiting the Wolves Museum can secure their pictures with the Trophy and, possibly secure autographs from the players (subject to availability and demand) from 12:00pm till 1:00pm on Saturday.


The Trophy will be displayed in the Wolves Museum until Friday 7th June 2013, giving fans plenty of opportunity to see it, along with the rest of the Wolves Museum (click HERE to buy Museum tickets).
