Wolves need stability now, says Rachael Heyhoe Flint

Wolves vice-president Baroness Rachael Heyhoe Flint today described the club's plight as 'absolutely tragic' while calling for stability.


Mrs Heyhoe Flint has been a fan of the club for 64 years after first attending a match aged nine. Over 23 years of involvement in the club in various roles she has worked with 10 different managers – including four in the last 15 months.

She compared the club's current situation with the troubles of the 1980s, when the club fell through the football league pyramid to sit in its fourth tier by 1986, six years after winning the League Cup and finishing sixth in Division One.

Former England Women's Cricket Captain Mrs Heyhoe Flint OBE said: "I just find it absolutely tragic what the club is going through. I was involved on the periphery of the club in the 1980s and it's a bit like that.

"We all have our opinions how to run Wolves but it is gone now and the recriminations are going to be far-reaching.

"It's no use forgetting what has happened but now we must hope for stability when the club can recover itself."
