1891 - 1937 : the Leamington Town era : Programmes
home -> leamington town era -> programmes -> wolves 'a' vs birmingham combination team - 1935

Programme from when Wolves "A", the reigning champions, took on a "Rest of the Birmingham Combination" side.  In the days when the two sides players were numbered 1 through 22, number 19 (Derbyshire) was a player from Leamington Town.  

The programme lists four names that soon made an impact on the Football League. Number 9 Galley and number 6 Gardiner made the Wolves first team the next season whilst number 3, Taylor, and  5, the legendary Stan Cullis, were in the first team in 1936/37. All four made the cup final of 1939 when Wolves lost 4-1 to Portsmouth in front of 99,370 spectators
