Sad to announce the passing of Ian Ross who was on the Wolves coaching staff during the John Barnwell era. Ian was brought to Wolves from Peterbrough by John Barnwell as a player / coach. He never actually made a first team appearance for Wolves despite appearing in playing kit on the standard pre-season team photographs. He did play a fair number of central league appearances where his experience helped a number of young players who were coming through from the youth team at that time, the likes of John Humphrey, John Pender and Bob Coy to name three. Ian Ross was Wolves temporary Manager for five games during January in that shambles of a season in 1981/82. He was succeeded in the role by Ian Greaves.
