WOLVESFC.CO.UK is sad to report that former Wolves and Newcastle United manager Bill McGarry has died after suffering from a long-term illness. A minutes silence will be held before the game with Stoke on Saturday.
McGarry had two spells in charge of Wolves and lead the Old Gold to two finals in his spells at the club.
The first spell was between 1968 and 1976 and in that time he lead Wolves to a Uefa Cup final (Wolves lost to Spurs, 1972) and to a League Cup final (Wolves beat Manchester City, 1974).
McGarry moved then moved away from Molineux where he went on to manager Newcastle United, amongst others, but returned to Molineux in 1985 to replace Tommy Docherty.
However, unhappy about the way the club was being run by the Bhatti Brothers, McGarry left Molineux after just 61 days.
In his days of a player McGarry played for England, Port Vale and Huddersfield Town. A minutes silence will be held in his memory prior to Saturdays visit of Stoke City.
