Karl Henry was born at Wolverhampton’s New Cross Hospital, brought up at Ashmore Park in the city and went on to captain Wolves to the Championship title and three subsequent years in the Premier League.
In seven seasons at his hometown club, Karl made 272 appearances in the Wolves midfield, scoring seven goals, out of a total of 574 career outings, and 11 goals.
During his time at Molineux, Karl always ensured the players worked closely in the local community and carried out activities for the club’s official charity, as well as organising various fundraising initiatives to support local schools and charities.
As a result, he was delighted to be asked to become the Foundation’s first official ambassador in April 2019, once again offering the opportunity to become heavily involved in the local community in which he grew up.
Henry: “Being from Wolverhampton and having played for the club for such a long time, it is an honour to be supporting the work delivered by the Foundation.”
