The Queen's New Year's Honours List had a pleasant surprise for one of our more famous supporter and patron, Ron Flowers.
Ron, often seen at our annual Sportsman's Dinner, was honoured with the MBE from the Queen for services to football along with a certain Jimmy Greaves. Ron played 49 times for England in the centre of defence, scoring 10 goals.
Ron will be forever known for his association with Wolves having played 467 times, scoring 33 goals and winning the First Division 3 times and the FA Cup. However, the pinnacle of his career, Ron was included in the 1966 World Cup winning England Squad under Alf Ramsey.
Ron has supported the club for a long time and opened our new clubhouse in 2017 as our guest of honour (pictured below). Always ready with a smile and a story, the links between the club were cemented when his grandson, Harry played for the club before going on to transfer to Burnley FC in the Premier League.
Everyone at the club sends their best wishes to Ron and the family on a long-overdue gong !
