“Everyone at the Club was shocked and deeply saddened to learn of Malcolm’s death.
Not only was he a member of the Wolves Hall of Fame and a legendary former player, but he remained part of the fabric of the Club becoming Chairman, and then recently, President, of the Wolves Former Players Association, working tirelessly on behalf of former players for a number of years.
Our deepest condolences got to Malcolm’s partner, Angela, his daughter, Sandra and her husband, Mel, and all his family and friends.”
