Boyhood Wolves supporter and the last player to score a European goal for the club before this season, Mel Eves, will speak about his time at Molineux when he appears on the latest episode of the Old Gold Club this evening.
Darlaston-born Eves, who made 214 appearances in gold and black, is the twelfth ex-Wolves star to appear on the second series of the club’s official podcast as he chats to podcast hosts Mikey Burrows and ex-Wolves striker Chris Iwelumo.
Educated at Wolverhampton Grammar School before joining the city’s football team as a 19-year-old, the forward went on to score more than 50 times in gold and black, earning him an England B call up as he helped Wolves to a 1980 League Cup title.
On the 30-minute video show, Eves speaks about needing permission from his school to play for Wolves, his relationship with Dave Wagstaffe while he was a young professional and tasting success in gold and black at Wembley.
The 63-year-old also expands on watching the club drop into the fourth tier after he moved to Sheffield United, growing up a Wolves supporter, as well as feeling the pressure of being a local lad playing for the team he loved.
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.
Blyth is currently recruiting for multi-skilled and single trades for both the insurance repair and construction sectors, as well as smaller ltd companies to strengthen their supply chain. For more information, click here.
