Former Wolves goalkeeper Malcolm Finlayson has died at the age of 84.
He was suddenly taken ill and passed away yesterday afternoon in Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley.
Malcolm won league titles with Wolverhampton Wanderers in 1958 and 1959, and also won the FA Cup in 1960. He made 203 appearances in all competitions for Wolves.
“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.”

Tonight's teams for England under 21s play off with Croatia at Molineux.
In 2013 they became the first club in history to endure back to back relegations from football's top flight - twice.
Now though, Wolves could achieve something really quite remarkable - successive promotions back to the top.
It is early days, but the team is currently one of the Championship's form sides and it seems everyone is crediting the turn around to one man.
Steve Clamp reports.
Jamie O'Hara has left Wolves.
The club said the midfielder's contract has been cancelled by mutual consent and immediate effect.
He made 55 league appearances after joining Wolves in 2011.

At half time in the Championship match between Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Craven Cottage, Bakary Sako's strike has given the away side a 1-0 lead.
I am delighted that the club have accepted my offer to host a reception in honour of a wonderful season which has seen records broken and promotion as champions of League One.
We are all extremely proud of the team and everyone associated with the club, which is such a huge part of Wolverhampton life.
While we are all realistic about the challenges that lie ahead in the Championship, we all believe Wolves belong in the Premier League and I very much hope it won't be long before my successor in this role is toasting a return to the top flight.
