    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.

    Ian Ross, name from the past.
    Played most of his games for a successful Villa team.
    Look after us for a few games when JB departed.
    A good, solid professional.

    Rest in peace fella,

    Aw, damn. Remember asking my Dad who was Ian Ross when I got my 1979/80 Panini football sticker album. He said he was a journeyman pro. Didn’t know what that meant at the time, so assumed he must be fantastic. Always looked out for him for years after that. God rest Ian. Another idol of my youth gone.
