Just Reward

Just Reward

Wolves striker Andy Keogh has seen his tireless efforts last season rewarded by Mick McCarthy who has awarded him the coveted old gold number 9 shirt.

With five other strikers currently on the Wanderers books, allocating the jersey previously worn by Wolves legends Derek Dougan, John Richards and Steve Bull to the 21 year old Irishman is a reaffirmation of the instant impact made in his first season at Molineux.

An elated Keogh told the clubs official site

'I know the number 9 is special to the supporters of this club and hopefully I have shown since I came here that here I have the potential to fill the shirt.

'It's just a great feeling, and I know that Steve Bull was an absolute legend here so if I can get anything remotely close to what he did I'll be delighted.'

And so will Wolves fans.

Keogh's endless running and chasing of lost causes has earned him a warm place in the hearts of the Molineux faithful.

His contribution to last season's exploits wasn't lost on anyone, least of all manager Mick McCarthy.

Now, with the promise of an Eastwood-Keogh partnership in store, Wolves fans can once again look forward to the prospect of a front pairing that will strike fear into the hearts of defenders throughout the division.

Good to see Keogh get the number 9. Hopefully it inspires him to bigger and better things at Wolves

the lad deserves it. He was immense last season Whoever partners him, if he indeed starts, and I hope it's Eastwood and Andy up front, will have a fantastic provider. If our front guys gel and we play with the same never say die attitude we could be in for one hell of a season

I agree, I think our striking options are looking very good, I hope we have the same depth at the back. Well done Andy.
