Wolves' Steve Morgan and Jez Moxey get iced

Wolves board of directors took the plunge this afternoon when they undertook the ice bucket challenge.

Owner-chairman Steve Morgan, chief executive Jez Moxey and directors John Gough and John Bowater lined up in Wolves tracksuits near the home dugout to receive a soaking from supporters pitchside at Molineux, half an hour before the game against Blackburn.

Although not many of the crowd were there to see it, there were cheers from the fans inside the ground, particularly for Moxey and Morgan, who also received a few boos.

Fans and photographers alike lined up to take pictures of the four taking the freezing challenge for charity, the craze that has swept the country in recent weeks.

Morgan said: “I was nominated for this by my son-in-law to be Steve and I have to nominate three more – Jez Moxey was my first!”

Moxey added: “I’ve got a feeling some people are looking forward to seeing this happen!

“Let’s hope the result warms us up! I’m going to nominate my mother-in-law Maureen and my old pal at Ipswich, Terry Connor.”

Gough said: “I’m going to nominate my smirky son standing over there!”

Bowater nominated David Edwards from Carden Park.

Next time, just give the money and spare us the moronic bandwagon-hopping.

A nasty, shabby little contribution from Petenuts.

They were publicly challenged to do this for a worthwhile cause. What did you expect them to do, hideaway in some darkened shower block?

There, were you, in your usual Molineux seat booing and gesticulating?

FT I don't think it was a shabby contribution, just an alternative viewpoint. I personlly was hoping our lot would avoid this media led exibitionist led craze. When you think of all the problems in the World don't you think this all smacks of a spoilt boy syndrome prank that has gone viral on the back of a good cause ? There are plenty of better ways of giving to charity and to be fair to Steve Morgan he does already set a good example through his foundation work.

Farmer Ted

Chris, NO I DON'T!

I consider it mean-spirited, especially from a man who doesn't bother to attend Molineux. As for the troubles of the world...do me a favour...we would all like to put an end to the misery that's going on, but what can we do as individuals? ....certainly not criticise the millions that have been raised worldwide to find cures and help sufferers of the various wicked diseases.

It is the triviality of it all, suitably backed up with photo shoots. It is more reminiscent of the pranks of a stag night. When people in years to come study history, how will this bucket business be reflected upon? A silly fad that reflects poorly on the values of the West. Syria and Iraq is burning, mass child abuse in Rotherham, Gaza has burn't we are faced with a life threatening disease in Africa and Russian tanks on the lawn.What were they doing in the West at the time, throwing buckets of cold water at each other and making sure the cameras were rolling. Has Cameron and Obama done it yet ?

Farmer Ted

So what the F.... were you doing about it? Watching a football match!

God help those poor souls in Gaza, Ukraine, Damascus and 90s Rotherham, but how dare you link them with the efforts of people raising money for charity however much of a fad you consider it to be.

By the same token do you decry the efforts of Children in Need, Comic Relief, Sports Relief and all of the other fund raising charities? None of us can be all things to all men we can only do our bit, but at least some of us have a go.

I hope you and your arrogant and pompous friend Petenuts enjoy your cynical views but consider this ; what have YOU done about Syria, Iraq and Ukraine?

FT Somewhat over the top response that, Ted. As I said in my first post there are better ways of making donations or working for a charity rather than by frivolous stunts. It is perfectly acceptable for people to have an alternative opinion without being cynical. And yes I went to see a football match. If you don't agree with my point then fair enough . In 25 years time when looking back on World events given all the current problems and the apparent inertia by our elected leaders, in my opinion this world wide craze of a bucket chalenge will seem pretty hollow. Just my opinion.

"I consider it mean-spirited, especially from a man who doesn't bother to attend Molineux. "

I moved back to Wolverhampton eight weeks ago. So far, I've been to every home game. I can't guarantee I'll be at all of them due to work commitments but, well, it may be time for you to take ill-considered potshots at me based on other grounds.

Also... grow up. IBC is a fad, another one will be along to thrill you soon.

"I hope you and your arrogant and pompous friend Petenuts enjoy your cynical views."

We do.

Silver Wolf

Sad, but I'm just waiting for the first fatality. Some of the participants, countrywide, are not youngsters and there will be something go wrong, the shock will be too much, you can bet on it!

Didn't see much ice in the water thought it was supposed to be an ice bucket.

Solentwolves

Good on 'em - shows spirit. Well done the four of them - great to see these such deserving causes so well supported.

karlwolves

MY OLD MATE TERRY CONNOR says it all.

Why is Moxey still here

Spot on. Doesn't it just!!

Ye Olde South Bank

I thought the same, Karl ;-)

How on earth did Moxey get socks on with a toe sandal ? Are they a new kind of ninja sock or something?

mardygit

Well done the board shows great spirit and they are doing it for good causes, thought Rachel would have been among them though. COME ON WOLVES.

Bazrat

I think Rachel might be a touch older than them.

Farmer Ted

You just don't get it do you? Like I asked, what have YOU done about the problems in Syria, Iraq And Ukraine ?

Well let me tell you.

Nothing that's what, just tutted between Countdown and Pointless and shook your head about what a terrible place this world can be.

Still you'll be able to moan in 25 years time about how Moxey wasted time ice-bucketing when he could have been signing Scott Dann.

I won't be here any how, so who gives a shit?

No doubt that supercilious who thinks he's a wordsmith will be on soon to tell us how unfortunate he was to be kicked out of whatever extremely high position he thought he had.The truth is he wasnt good enough....but worry not, he'll still mark your grammar and punctuation whilst he listens to the news.

My name's Duncan Ballentyne... And I'm out!

Supercilious isn't a noun. I'm thinking that maybe you should leave badinage to those of us who can actually do it.

Also, don't be afraid of your space bar, the apostrophe button or the correct use of the words "whilst" and "while".

Our forward line at walsall tried the challenge but kept missing the target so after 16 attempts gave up.
