First weekend of December nearly over, so let’s end day 6 of Fancast Advent with Jody Craddock
Much like Richard Stearman yesterday, had an arc to his Wolves career like few other have in recent years.
Joining the club in 2003 after Wolves were promoted to the promise land of the Premier League. It’s safe to say Craddock did not set the world alike during own first time in the top flight as Wolves went straight back down to the second tier.
For the next few seasons at Molineux, Craddock made himself part of the furniture in the Wolves team as a solid enough if limited defender.
It was under McCarthy when he truly came into his own. After returning from a loan spell at Stoke in 2007, Craddock was the experienced head in Wolves young, vibrant side.
Craddock’s form during the 2009/10 season was on the factors for Wolves staying up in the Premier League. Scoring 5 goals, he made a made a vital contribution to Wolves survival.
He continued to stay at the club until he retired in 2013, earning a testimonial for ten year of service in a Wolves shirt.
