Old Gold Club | Stephen Ward joins the podcast

Championship-winning left-back, striker and left-winger Stephen Ward is the latest former Wolves star to delve into his history at the club when he appears on the official Old Gold Club podcast on Wednesday evening.

The versatile Irishman, who made 239 appearances in gold and black, is the 14th fan favourite to appear on the second series of the podcast when he chats about his seven-year stint at Molineux to regular show hosts Mikey Burrows and Ward’s former teammate Chris Iwelumo.

The Republic of Ireland international made the transition from front to back while under the tutelage of Mick McCarthy at Wolves, joining the club as a striker before moving to left-wing, before playing the majority of the club’s Championship-winning 2008/09 season at left-back in place of the injured George Elokobi.

On this evening’s 30-minute video show, Ward talks about being one of several strikers at the club during the late noughties, teaching himself to become a full-back by watching others play the position, as well as getting sent off and scoring at Anfield.

The 34-year-old also expands on his relationship with Mick McCarthy, how Wolves overachieved by staying in the Premier League for three seasons, why the team never believed relegation was looming and the fallout following top-flight relegation.

The episode will be aired at 6pm on Wednesday, with a 30-minute Facebook and YouTube show, while an extended chat will go live on iTunes here.
