Andy Thompson to be inducted into Old Gold Club

Wolves commentator and former flying full-back Andy Thompson will be the latest guest to be inducted into the Old Gold Club as he appears on the popular podcast this week.

‘Thommo’, who joined Wolves from Black Country rivals West Bromwich Albion in a double deal alongside Steve Bull in 1986, will be the 28th inductee to be interviewed about his time at the club by his Wolves commentary partner Mikey Burrows and regular podcast host Chris Iwelumo.

The Featherstone-born defender will discuss his 11-year stint at Molineux when he features on Thursday night’s edition of the Old Gold Club.

The episode will be broadcast during a half hour Facebook, YouTube and Twitter video this evening at 6pm, before an extended podcast is released on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and all other podcast apps.

Thompson became a fans favourite during more than a decade he spent in the gold and black of Wolves, with his speed down the wing and his penalty exploits receiving high acclaim.

He was an integral part of the Wolves team which secured consecutive promotions from the Fourth Division to Division Two in the late 80s, while also being key member of the side which lifted the Sherpa Van Trophy at Wembley Stadium in 1988.

Thompson went on to make more than 450 appearances in Old Gold, nothing 45 goals for Wolves, before joining Tranmere Rovers in the late 90s.

Since retiring from football in 2003, the Hall of Famer has turned his hand to commentary and currently co-commentates on all of Wolves matches alongside Old Gold Club podcast host Mikey Burrows for Wolves TV and Signal 107.

Thommo’s episode of the Old Gold Club will be broadcast on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter from 6pm this evening, while the full podcast will be available on all the regular channels afterwards.

The first 27 episodes of the podcast, where guests included Carl Ikeme, Kenny Hibbitt, John Richards, George Elokobi, Steve Daley, Mick McCarthy and Mo Camara are also available to listen back on iTunes by clicking here or Spotify here.
