Wolverhampton has been blessed with a large number of successful sports clubs and individuals who have won national and international acclaim. Wolverhampton Wanderers are the reason that the city's name is known worldwide. However, Wolverhampton & Bilston Athletics Club and Wolverhampton Judo Club both have a greater claim to the accolade of most successful sporting club in the city. The 'other' Wolves, Wolverhampton's speedway team, have consistently ridden in the top flight of British Speedway. Also, cars from local motor company Sunbeam broke the World Land Speed Record five times, and the company also became involved in the early history of British aviation. Other clubs may not have reached the same heady heights, but have achieved great success at the level at which they compete and have produced individuals who have gone on to represent major counties or their country. One good example of this is Wolverhampton Cricket Club, the oldest sports club in the town. In this fascinating, illustrated guide to the sporting heroes of the city, Joey Brew discusses those, like Billy Wright, who may not have been born in the area, but who have represented Wolverhampton clubs and have gone on to achieve national and international success, as well as those who were born in the area, who may have achieved sporting fame elsewhere, like Arthur Rowley. This book is perfect for any Wolverhampton sports fan, who will find between these pages a wide variety of sporting heroes, perhaps even their own personal hero, and will almost certainly also learn a thing or two.
