My All-Time Wolverhampton Wanderers Legends – Stan Cullis (3/5)

Although he lost much of his prime as a player to WWII, he went on to excel as a manager.

Initially, following retirement from injury, he was appointed assistant to Ted Vizard.

Then, in 1948 at the age of thirty-one, Cullis became first-team manager at Molineux.

He went on to preside over Wolves’ greatest period.

A year after his appointment, Stan Cullis secured the club’s first major trophy in forty-one years, lifting the FA Cup.

He was also the youngest manager to achieve that.

Five years later, Wolves were the English top-flight champions.
