Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club began as a schoolboy team when the headmaster of St. Luke's school in Blakenhall, Harry Barcroft, presented a football to a group of pupils who had enjoyed an exceptional year's school work. The presentation of the football was instigated by the co-founders of the team, John Baynton and Jack Brodie. St Luke's FC began life in 1877 and, two years later, after merging with the local cricket team known as The Wanderers, the football club became known as Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The club used two fields - Windmill Field and John Harper's Field - both off Lower Villiers Street in Blakenhall in its formative years, before moving to a site on the Dudley Road opposite the Fighting Cocks Inn in 1881. The only shelter for spectators was a shed. Eight years later, the club moved to a new ground which is still their home today - Molineux.
Wolves are currently playing in the second tier of English football after recently being relegated from the premier division.
