Don Goodman

Leeds born Don Goodman joined Wolves in a £1m from Sunderland signing for Wolves Manager Graham Taylor on the same day that John DeWolf signed from Feyenoord. An exciting double signing, which was well received by the fans. Don was a well known adversary having previously played for Albion and Sunderland against Wolves on several occasions. In fact shortly before his signing for Wolves he had been sent off at Molineux in a game which saw two Sunderland players sent of early in a game both for comments to the same linesman.

we saw Don at his mischievous best cracking jokes, and having a really good time

At Wolves for 4 years from 1994 to 1998 he scored 33 goals in 125 games partnering either Steve Bull or David Kelly up front. He was also played out wide for many games where his pace made him quite effective. But perhaps his best asset was his ability to ‘hang’ in the air, to meet the crosses from his good mate Steve Froggett. Don’s finest moment in a Wolves shirt was a FA Cup Quarter Final away at Leeds where he scored the only goal of the game chipping over the keeper after latching on to Carl Robinson’s through ball against his home town club.

Don had some trials and tribulations during his playing career playing at Bradford’s Valley Parade the day of the fire his last for the club before joining Albion where he was successful in being part of the squad that saw them relegated! He also experienced at Wolves disappointment in the playoffs twice in three years and suffered a fractured skull which saw him out of the team for a long period. He made his return at Maine Road coming on as Sub to a standing ovation.

Don came along to a couple of dinners in Daventry. The first with Mark Rankine (POTY winner) and Darren Ferguson which saw him on his best behaviour and getting to know what we were about. The next year he came with Mark Atkins who was POTY winner and we saw Don at his mischievous best cracking jokes, and having a really good time. He was always supportive of us in the DDCWWFCSC and assisted in getting players along to one of the big do’s the 21st Anniversary at Molineux in 1996.

After leaving Wolves he played two seasons in Japan and spoke at length to Coxy about his experiences out there before joining Motherwell and then moving to Bescott where he helped Walsall win in the playoffs at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium scoring against Reading. He now works in the media and as a personal trainer.
