Wolves president Sir Jack Hayward celebrated promotion after listening to the match from his home in the Bahamas.
The club’s vice president Baroness Wolverhampton, Rachael Heyhoe-Flint, said her first call after the match was to Sir Jack.
She said: “He was thrilled to bits. His only regret was that he could not be at Crewe himself.
“I had also phoned him at half time, he was listening to the game through some kind of peculiar contraption on the other side of the Atlantic.
“He has never lost his love of Wolves.”
Baroness Wolverhampton also said that promotion on Saturday was about the whole season, and not just that one game.
“Things had been gently simmering and then really started to take off,” she said. “But I have been in sport all my life and have learnt that you never take anything for granted.
“I just love the approach of the management, board of directors and players. It has been so level headed. You can talk a good game but you have still got to do it.
“There has been a quiet and considered approach by everybody at the club. I did not dare to believe we would do it until five o’clock.
Sport is a funny old game but one thing is certain Good Friday is certain to be a very good Friday for all Wolves fans.”
And she added:”Even those who were not in the team were really delighted. George Elokobi climbed over the seats into the directors’ box, gave Steve Morgan a hug and kept saying ‘thank you, thank you’.
“George is a delightful person and it was good to see the enthusiasm was there even among the players who have not been in the team very much.
“It shows the terrific spirit at the club.”Subscribe to our Newsletter
