FORMER PREMIER LEAGUE MANAGER HAS BEEN REPORTED DEAD

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers coach Sammy Chapman has been confirmed dead at the age of 81. The former defender managed the Wanderers for just one season - 1985-86, and was regarded as the fans favourite during his short spell at the club. 

The family of the late coach made the news available in the early hours of Friday, saying he was in "good spirits" in his final moments. Both his sons, Campbell and Cavan, who played for the Molineux Stadium outfit shared the news as friends and well-wishers showered tributes on the legend. 

On Facebook, Cavan wrote: "Apologies but no other way to contact everyone. Unfortunately, my dad passed away last night/yesterday at home. "He was in good spirits the last time I spoke to him. "We will be organising the funeral/memorial at Trysull in the next month for all that can make it. "Thanks for your condolences in advance.” 

 Dean Edwards, one of the players who featured for Wolves under Chapman led the tributes.
