Passed away earlier this week, age 84.
Before my time but I believe he was a left winger who played over 100 games for us in the early 1960s.
RIP

He played most games on the right wing and on his day could be a handful, He had a good understanding with Barry Dyson and briefly Dave Hickson. Always gave us all but was edged out by the arrival of Ken Finney who was a model of consistency

Wheeler played for Bolton in the classic 1953 Matthews final and his cousin was Liverpool legend Ronnie Moran.

I saw him play in the first couple of seasons that I watchd Rovers as a child but was too young to really appreciate his skills. What I do recall however was him being the first player that I had seen playing for Rovers that went onto get a England cap about five years later.I listened to the game on the radio just to hear how often he was mentioned
