Dennis Westcott is one of Wolves’ truly great centre forwards.

His total of 38 league goals in the 1946/47 season, 60 years ago, remains a club record for a single season.

In the 1938/39 campaign, his 43 goals in all competitions helped Major Frank Buckley’s side finish runners-up in both the First Division and the FA Cup.

Born in Wallasey, Westcott won four wartime caps for England, scoring a hat-trick against Wales against Wembley.

For many years, Westcott’s silhouette adorned the cover of the club programme.
