Bully’s in town! Former Wolves player Steve Bull at Yale’s Willenhall office

Yale celebrated this year’s Brazilian World Cup in style with a team barbeque, football competitions and a guest star appearance from the former England and Wolves player.

Bull was there to greet admiring fans as well as draw the winners of Yale’s anticipated competition to win a signed England football shirt or ball. The proceeds of this competition will go straight to help with the excellent work of Victim Support, an independent national charity for victims and witnesses of crime.

Nigel Fisher, Managing Director of Yale UK said: “It was a privilege to have Steve Bull at Yale today – he is a local football legend and star. His attendance was appreciated by all of the Yale staff. The World Cup event was a huge success and we raised £500 for Victim Support. I hope that our competition winners enjoy their signed memorabilia.

It was great to see Bull – but it was a shame he wasn’t playing! Steve – we would be happy to have you as the star of an Assa Abloy football squad.”

Steve Bull had a thirteen year spell at Wolverhampton Wanderers. He played at the club until his retirement and still holds the club’s goal scoring record – succeeding a total of 306 goals in his time at Wolves.

He made a total of 461 league appearances for the club and on the 13th July 1999, at the age of 34, he gave into a difficult knee injury and closed play.

On behalf of all the team here at Yale, we would like to thanks Steve Bull for coming to Yale today!
