Former Wolves and Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Paul Bradshaw has died aged 67.

Altrincham-born Bradshaw made 243 appearances during a six-year spell at Wolves and was voted their player of the year for successive seasons in 1981 and 1982.

The club said on their official website: "Wolves are saddened to announce that legendary Wolves goalkeeper Paul Bradshaw has passed away at the age of 67.

"Bradshaw, nicknamed 'Braddy', is Wolves' fifth most-used goalkeeper, and 50th most selected player of all time, having represented the Old Gold during one of the most successful eras in the club's history."

Wolves added: "The thoughts of everyone at Wolves are with Paul's family and friends at this sad time."

Bradshaw kept a clean sheet when Wolves beat Nottingham Forest 1-0 at Wembley in the 1979-80 League Cup final - the last time the club won a major trophy.

He featured in the first ever England Under-21 fixture, a 0-0 draw against Wales at Molineux, before joining Wolves for a club record fee of £150,000 in 1977 from Blackburn.

Bradshaw was twice on the losing side in an FA Cup semi-final as Wolves lost to Arsenal and Tottenham in 1979 and 1981 respectively before leaving Molineux to join Vancouver Whitecaps.

He also had spells at Newport and Peterborough before retiring as a player in 1992.
