Legendary keeper Parkes joins Old Gold Club

Wolves’ 1972 UEFA Cup Final goalkeeper Phil Parkes will be the latest guest to be inducted into the Old Gold Club as he appears on the popular podcast this week

‘Lofty’ spent 16 years at Molineux after initially moving to the club straight from school as a 15-year-old before going on to play 382 times for Wolves during the late 1960s and 1970s where he was an ever-present between the sticks – breaking the club record for most consecutive league appearances by playing in 127 matches in a row.

The keeper will dive into his time at the club as the third inductee of the Old Gold Club’s second series, where he will join regular podcast hosts Mikey Burrows and Chris Iwelumo.

On the 30-minute show, West Bromwich-born Parkes speaks in-depth on a variety of topics including the run ins with his hometown club, playing in homemade gloves and the penalty saves he made to help Wolves reach the first ever UEFA Cup final.

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

The 2019/20 Old Gold Club series will be powered by Blyth Group, an industry-leading construction company driving investment and infrastructure across the UK, who are now on board for the show’s new series.
