Methley, Irvin When he came to Walsall he shared accommodation with two more young players from the Wolves, Billy Skidmore and Henry Walters in a disused bakery converted into living quarters. It formed a boundary to our garden in Palfrey. During the close season they would join us boys on the odd occasion having a kick about in Palfrey Park. Our early Saddlers heroes.

Methley, Irvin Irvin was a friend of my mother's cousin, Victor Careless and his wife Hilda. The friendship developed because Hilda and Irvin's wife Iris, had been best friends throughout their childhood. He was a lovely man and I remember, when I was a boy, the four of them drove up to North Wales to spend a weekend with us when we had a caravan holiday there. I have a photograph of us all on the beach at Harlech. Very happy times!

Methley, Irvin One of the most pleasant,gentle men I have ever known. Played golf with him up until a few months before he died. Always proud to have played for Wolves - but very modest. Very glad to have known him.
