Henry becomes Foundation ambassador

Wolves Foundation are delighted to announce Karl Henry as their first ever ambassador.

Born and bred in Wolverhampton, Karl Henry started his career down the road with Stoke City, before jumping at the chance to join Wolves in 2006.

Quickly made captain, Henry went on to lead Wolves into the Premier League in 2009, before playing three seasons in the top flight for the club.

Henry finished on more than 250 appearances for the club before departing in 2013. After time with QPR, Bolton Wanderers and Bradford City, Henry hung up his boots in recent months.

The 36-year-old was always very supportive of the club’s charitable work as a player, regularly giving his all at player appearances.

Henry said: “I’m delighted to become the Foundation’s first ambassador. The work being delivered throughout the local region is quite incredible, with so many people now benefiting from the range of supportive services on offer.

“Being from Wolverhampton and having played for the club for such a long time, it is an honour to be supporting the work delivered by the Foundation.”

This weekend's home fixture against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday 20th April is the dedicated Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation Focus Fixture.
