Edward Elgar, best known for composing Land of Hope and Glory, was also a lifelong Wolves fan.
In 1898 he was inspired by Billy Malpass, the club’s star striker of the time, to write the music and words for what is regarded as the world’s first football chant.
And Philosophy Football have turned Elgar’s composition, in his own hand, into a toffee-coloured T-shirt, the strip Wolves wore at the time.
Available from www.philosophyfootball.com we have 5 to be won in our December competition. Simply answer the following question:
Wearing their toffee-coloured kit in which year did Wolves win the FA Cup for the first time?
