Steve Daley joins the Old Gold Club

UEFA Cup finalist and League Cup winning midfielder Steve Daley will be in the Old Gold Club hot seat this evening as the latest inductee on the popular podcast.

The goalscoring wide-man, who still holds the record for the fastest goal ever scored in European football cup competitions, is set to become the 17th inductee when he appears as the special guest on this week’s episode.

Daley will discuss joining the club as an apprentice in 1971, before going on to become the English record transfer when he joined Manchester City eight years later when he joins regular hosts Mikey Burrows and Chris Iwelumo during a half hour Facebook and YouTube video, before an extended podcast is released on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all other podcast apps.

As the latest inductee into Old Gold Club, sponsored by Wolverhampton Building Supplies, the 65-year-old will recount the part he played in getting Wolves to the first ever UEFA Cup final in 1972 and winning the League Cup two years later.

Daley made more than 240 appearances in gold and black during his eight-year spell at Molineux in which he racked up 43 goals from a wide position in midfield.

Joining the club as an apprentice, Daley was an ever-present for the majority of his Wolves career, helping his team win the Second Division title at the first attempt.

Daley played a key role in helping Wolves to reach the final of the 1972 UEFA Cup final, scoring a vital, record-breaking goal in the semi-final victory over Ferencváros inside the first minute.

After hanging up his boots following a 17-year career, which included playing six times and scoring two goals for England ‘B’ team during 1978, Daley briefly managed various non-league clubs in the Midlands, before establishing himself as an after-dinner speaker.

The latest Old Gold Club will be broadcast on Facebook and YouTube from 6pm this evening, while the full podcast will be available on all the regular channels afterwards.

The first 16 episodes of the podcast with Carl Ikeme, Kenny Hibbitt, Tony Daley, Terry Connor, Scott Golbourne, Karl Henry, David Kelly, Ally Robertson, Jack Price, Matt Jarvis, Matt Murray, Don Goodman, John Richards, George Elokobi, Seyi Olofinjana and Lee Naylor are also available to listen back to by clicking here.
